George was born on February 18, 1957 in Hartford, CT. He attended catholic school and was a member of Our Lady of Sorrows Fife & Drum Corps. He was a Boy Scout and earned the required medals for Eagle Scout. He excelled in outdoor activities such as archery and camping. He was the Senior Patrol Leader for Troop 38. He was a member of the “Order of the Arrow” and received the Catholic “Ad Altare Dei” medal. He loved nature and maintained his personal property pristinely and with love. He also tilled land for family and friends. After all the work was done, George kept busy by playing “musical trees”; moving bushes and small trees from one location to another. In his later years, he enjoyed darts, pool, and playing cards with his buddies (Jeff, Mark, Dan, Ron, Steve, Dom). His most joyful place was sitting in the sun at Siesta Key Beach, Sarasota, FL.
He graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Connecticut with a Bachelor’s Degree in 1987 and a Finance Master’s Degree in 1995 while working full time as a corporate accountant for Arch Chemicals which was acquired by Lonza in 2011 and from where George retired a few years ago. He was also on the board at Stepney Baptist Church, and volunteered as their accountant; handling budget, payroll, and taxes. He also prepared yearly tax returns for family and friends and never expected anything in return.
George will be remembered as a sincere, humble, loving, generous, and caring man who loved the Lord, our God, and his wife and sons with all his heart. He was so proud of his sons, Alex and Michael. He was a blessing from God to everyone and will be greatly missed.
