Obituary

George Charles Mavrogeorge, 68, of Fort Myers, passed away Saturday, April 7, 2018. He was born July 23, 1949 in Boston, MA to Harry and Aspasia Mavrogeorge.  George was a caring man with a very caring heart.  As the second child in a family of twelve children, George was loved by his younger siblings.  In 1967, during the escalation of the war in Southeast Asia, known as the “Vietnam War,” George enlisted in the United States Navy.  George served two tours in Vietnam as a member of the Navy.  George was proud of his service to his country, which he loved.  George also loved the United States Navy, and wore his title of “Vietnam Navy Veteran” as a badge of honor – and it was well earned.

George loved his parents dearly, as well as his eleven brothers and sisters.  Whenever anybody from his family would talk with George, whether by telephone or in person, you would be sure to have George inquire about the welfare of their family – especially concerning his nieces and nephews.  Family was an important part of George’s heart.

George enjoyed spending time with his brothers, smoking a fine cigar with them, and spending time talking and laughing.  George had a tremendous sense of humor and loved to laugh.

He was a hard worker from very early on in his life and lasted for most of his adult years, until illness forced George from doing those things he loved.  He spent many years as a master tile and mason mechanic.  He taught his youngest brother the skills he had learned from his own time working with their father.  Later, as a lover of fine automobiles, George entered the world of automotive sales.  George was a wonderful conversationalist and was a “natural” in the field of sales.  He worked his way up to General Manager in a very large auto dealership group.

Even in his final months, and while bearing great pain, George loved talking with his family and always expressed his concern and prayers for each one.

George loved his Lord Jesus Christ and was assured of his entrance into Christ’s kingdom.  He believed fully in God’s great grace and knew of the Living Hope that was promised to him by Jesus, his savior. 

He is survived by eleven siblings; seven brothers and four sisters; Harry A. Mavrogeorge Jr. and his wife Teri of Weymouth, MA; Gregory Mavrogeorge of Litchfield, NH; Joann Catman and her husband Steven of Litchfield NH; Angela McFarland and her husband Chris of St. Petersburg, FL; John H. Mavrogeorge and his wife April of Ft. Myers, FL; James H. Mavrogeorge and his wife Susan of Hudson, NH; Diane Tousley of Swanzey, NH, Charles H. Mavrogeorge and his wife Kim of Hudson, NH; Alex H. Mavrogeorge of Litchfield, NH; Melina Bouley and her husband Mike of Providence Forge, VA; Michael H. Mavrogeorge of Kingston, NH.  He is also survived by over forty nieces and nephews who loved their Uncle George, as well as numerous great-nephews and nieces.  

He is preceded in death by his beloved parents, Harry A. and Aspasia (Lenton) Mavrogeorge, and niece, Tia Marie Mavrogeorge; whom he loved dearly and is now reunited with them in the presence of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in George’s memory to either St. Jude’s Research Hospital, or your local Hospice organization.  

Memorial Services will be held 10:00 am Saturday, April 14th, 2018 at Joanne’s House at Hope Hospice; 27200 Imperial Parkway, Bonita Springs, Fl. 34135.

    I will always remember the great stays I had in Avon and how wonderful I was treated by Uncle Harry and Aunt Aspacia. Harry Jr., George, Gregory and I (the older generation Mavros) had so much fun. George was always fun to be around. If you gave him a microphone and played guitars, he took it to a whole new level. George might have been a little loud, but he was a riot. RIP cousin and don't shake things too much up there.

    My dear brother George.. It is with great sadness and heaviness of heart that I even have to wrote this. The last time I saw you was when our Pop died, and I was sad to see how you had already began to change, going from very strong, someone all your siblings knew was a powerful man's man to someone whose body was being taken over by age and sickness.

    My prayers have always been with you, and I know you are at peace with our Lord, and you are in reunion with Ma and Dad, and all who passed before us. I've missed you since you all moved to Florida and I never fully understood it, but life goes on for all of us and change is inevitable. Acceptance is the key to one day feeling the restoration that won''t come any other way. Know that you are loved by many and will be missed by all.

    Till we meet again on the other side - anchors away my brother.. I love and miss you..

    Uncle George, it was very hard for me to hear that you left us but im also glad that you are free of pain. I will always remember the summer nights when you, my father, your other brothers, and popou would spend outside in the green tent smoking cigars and talking for what seemed to be forever at the time. I always loved the smell of the cigars and i loved the stories you all would share. I can hear you laughing just thinking of those times. Anytime i smoke a nice cigar it will be for you and i know you will be there enjoying it with me. I love you uncle george and i will miss you until we meet again.

    Uncle G,
    You were always more than just my uncle, you and I are brothers-in-arms and fellow combat veterans. This is a special bond very few people share. It is an honor to have shared this with you. I will carry forward in my life the example of honor and family loyalty you always exemplified. I am glad to have been around to enjoy your company over the last few years. Your humor and laughter are what I will remember most.
    Thank you and rest easy old uncle & freind.

    I can't believe a week ago today we talked laughed and watched one of your favorite shows with you. It broke my heart to see you in pain. You were happy we were there. And offered us candy. You were always sweet. I love you George only wished we could have spent more time with you but know that we will see you again in Heaven. I will be listening for your laugh.
    P.S Friday when you looked at John and Chuck and then looked right at me and said Kim Kim kimmie if anyone knows i don't like to be called Kimmie you get a pass cause i love you dearly.

    My dear brother words can't express the pain i feel in my heart. But o know you are home in a place where none of the heart aches and struggles that this life holds. You were a father figure to me, a mentor in places of my life that i know you saw i needed. I am blessed to have had the time togeather when i was a young man working in the tile trade. You showed me waht hars work truly is and should be. You gave me a gift of something that i can do with my hands that i was able to hand down to my son. You will forever be in my heart. Your baby brother
    Mike.

    My dear Uncle George,<br />
<br />
It's hard coming up with the right words to say how I feel. I have so many memories that lately they all seem to blur together. <br />
<br />
I remember as a child, we would have family gatherings during the summer, and you would always offer to buy ice cream for the many (thousands?lol) of children that were at my house. You enjoyed spoiling us, and I remember quite a few times you even handed out money. It may have only been a few dollars here or there, but I remember going to school after the summer and telling my friends that I had a rich uncle, and how lucky we were to have you. <br />
<br />
I remember the many days and nights you spent with my dad and Papou, just smoking cigars and talking. I loved listening to the stories, and I can still hear your laugh. Those are the memories I cherish the most. <br />
I also remember always being envious of the love you had for my sister. She was your baby. Your sweetie (I can still hear those words in my head like you are speaking them yourself), and you spoiled her like she was your own. <br />
<br />
You may not have been rich in the sense of money later on in life, but you were always so rich with love for your family. And we were all so blessed to have you in our lives. It was hard when you moved to Florida, but I knew it was a good choice for you. You got to spend the last years of your life down there comfortable, away from the chill of winters, and I could see how much you loved it just from the pictures that Uncle John posted. <br />
I only wish I could've spoken to you again. Just to tell you how much I love you, butI know we will see each other again one day. <br />
<br />
I love you so much, always <br />
<br />

    Uncle George,
    I’m sad that you are gone by happy you are free of pain. You loved us all and it showed every time you were around. I will always be grateful of when you gave me your car as my first car. I cherished that car because it was given to me by someone so special in my life. You were tough at times on me but I know it was because you loved and cared about me. I thank you. One of my favorite memories of you is when we were all kids, my siblinings and cousins, and you and our fathers were hanging outside. The ice cream truck was coming down the road and you turned to us and in your deep stern voice said “you kids want ice cream?” Of course what kid doesn’t so we said yes. You turned and yelled to the truck”Get Over Here” the driver stopped and you told us get what we want. That’s the kind of man you were. Always caring for his family. I’m blessed that I was able to spend so many years with you. Wish I could of gotten down to Florida to see you. Thank you uncle George for your service and all the love you’ve given this family and countless other lives you’ve crossed paths with. I love you Don Georgio, rest easy, until we meet again

    Uncle G, I always remember when I worked for Frank Beualieu, you were living in the apartment he had and I used to see you when we were getting supplies and parking the trucks sometimes. I'll never forget the time after work you invited me up and apologized for being so tough and mean to us kids when we were growing up. I obviously forgave you because I never held animosity towards you for it, I just always thought that you were my tough Greek uncle who cared about us. Then you told me how proud you were that I was working hard and that really stuck with me. As a young man, that day really set a good example for me and I don't think I ever truly thanked you for that. I respected and loved you before and even more so after that day. You were a good man and I've always looked up to you. Rest easy Uncle G, you deserve it.

    Evenin your pain and suffering you reached out to me to make sure I was doing well and tried to encourage me. I still have your last voicemail you left. I will always hold fond memories of our antics together in our younger days. We had many laughs together and shed many tears together. While I know you're pain free and alive in Glory my heart is still heavy. I'm glad Greg and I were able to see you last summer. I will cherish those moments always. Till that day we are united again brother, anchors away, keep our shores safe brother. I love you and miss you already.

    I love you my sweet brother and I thank God for the man you were in this life. You cared so much for others, your parents, siblings and friends. You had a great love of country. You had sacrificed so much in a war that was unpopular and vets were not given their due. You were proud of your service, you were an example to many. Thank you for caring so much for each of us. You are now caring for my children Christiana and Christopher as their Uncle in heaven, as well as Tia and Harry. Thank you for carrying our love to Mom and Dad. I am so grateful you are no longer suffering and that you are walking whole through the beautiful streets of gold. I am sure as you entered heaven's gates the Lord said to you, "Well done good and faithful servant." I love you my sweet and gentle brother. I love you forever!

    George, I will miss you greatly, although I know it will just be for a moment until we see one another. I look forward to seeing your smiling face. Thank you for being a wonderful brother and friend to Kim and I. Thank you for being a wonderful uncle to our children; They always loved their uncle George. I only wish I could have had more days to spend with you in those happier times you had in Florida. You will always be dear to my heart. I am grateful that you are pain free now, and enjoying the wonderful place our Lord Jesus has prepared for us. You were special. You were loved. You still are.

    Anchors away, Skipper. I love you.

    George how I will miss you in this life. From my days as a little girl to my days as a grown woman I looked up to you. I know you carried many burdens of sorrow in your heart and through all that you always thought of your family. And even in your private sorrow, you still found moments of happiness. I can still hear your laugh, which was very unique in nature because when you laughed, you meant it. I love you always. I know you are whole and new in the arms of our heavenly Father. Till we meet again ~Dedee
