In February 1975 I met George in Bermuda where he was stationed at the Naval base. We were later married in Corpus Christi, Texas on April 6, 1978. He became a father to Patrick and Shanda who he later adopted and grandfather to Tajee ,Shonneil, Zarrin, Alante, Mia, and Sage. He continued his Navel career for 21 years then retired. The Navy became our lives until retirement. Then he joined CHOP and kept the heating and cooling systems humming and collected another family of friends.
George was a good friend to many. He had a special way with people. He was compassionate, kind, and always willing to help others.
He was a good husband, father, and grandfather. He loved his grandkids. They became his life. He will be missed deeply and forever loved.
We have to mention his love for his cats. His favorite was Tommie then Charlie. After their deaths he was undecided about getting another. He had his eye on another cat named Cloud. He fell in love with her and brought her home 2 months ago. But he just had to have Oreo to be Cloud’s buddy. Together both of them are so happy and loved.
George is survived by his loving wife Denise, son, Patrick (wife Contay), daughter, Shanda, stepchildren: Dean, Andrew (wife Selena), Herbie (wife Carla), Robin, David, brothers: E. Carl 3rd, Charles and Richard, sister, Patricia Shelton and 6 grandchildren. He was pre deceased by his parents, Elmer Carl, Jr. and Mary Frances Fishel and brothers, John and Timothy.
George had a host of wonderful friends, especially Chip Moeinere who he considered a brother.
We offer a special thank you to the doctors and nurses at Samaritan Hospice, the Seventh Day Adventist Church and Grace Baptist Church.
