September 30, 2021 we lost a bigger than life man, Anthony “Tony” or “Skip” George. Born in Greenpoint Brooklyn, January 26, 1946, he was a proud Italian Polish New Yorker and a diehard Yankee fan. He had a wonderful sense of humor. He loved art, music, great Italian food, travel especially on the water and great wine. But above all, he loved those that survive him, his wife Cheryle, his daughter Jennifer, his family and his oh so many friends whom he often noted as his extended family. He served in the Navy during the Viet Nam war and was an accomplished business man. He was a man with many stories and never failed to leave everyone laughing. One day our tears of loss will return to those stories and we will remember the laughter. You are well loved Tony. RIP
A mass will be held on November 13, 2021, 11:00AM, at St Cecilia’s Roman Catholic Church, 84 Herbert Street Brooklyn, NY.
