George W. St. Georges, Jr., of Broad Brook, CT, was called by God on March 29, 2019. Service to others was at the very core of George’s life. He recently received his 50-year service award from the Boy Scouts of America, having served as Cubmaster, District Chairperson, and having maintained an advisory role throughout the years. As a member of Rotary International for over 30 years, he was named a Paul Harris Fellow, the highest honor the organization bestows. His faith fueled this service to others. He contributed his time to St. Catherine Church as a Eucharistic Minister and a member of the folk group. George served 21 years in the U.S. Army, retiring at the rank of Major. It seems appropriate that God called him home on National Vietnam Veterans’ Day, as that was his first active-duty tour. In his “spare time”, he was known to be an avid reader, played Bridge at expert level, and, most of all, cherished any moment spent with his family. George is survived by his beloved wife of 51 years, Karen. He is survived by three children: George III (Theodora), Matthew (Alisa), and Stephen (Christine), 14 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren, his brother Paul (June), and sister-in-law Jackie St. Georges, and several nieces and nephews and countless others touched by his kindness. He was predeceased by his brother, Donald.
