June 13, 1937 ~ March 15, 2009
George passed away peacefully at his home in Rossmoor on Sunday, March 15, 2009. George was born in Los Angeles to Mary and George Abramovic on June 13, 1937. He lived and had many fond memories of growing up in the South Bay. George married early and had two children. Christine and George. Christine is 48 years old and lives in Boise, Idaho with her two children, George's grandchildren, Cidney and Noah. George is 46 years old and works in the construction industry in Tehachapi. His sister Mary Ann lives in Gig Harbor, Washington, nearby George's special niece Carole and her three children, Mary Rose, John and Victoria. George treasured his close relationship with Carole and she remained a very important part of his life.
George married the love his life, Felice, on June 22, 1985. George and Felice lived in Redondo Beach and Torrance before moving to Rossmoor in 2000. George sold real estate most of his career before retiring. Retiring, however, never slowed him down, he kept busy with friends and family. George lived his life to the fullest and always enjoyed a great cigar or sipping scotch or bourbon with close friends. After being diagnosed with cancer in 2004, he still had the spirit to go on a rafting trip with his friends down the Colorado River. The "River Rats" loved George so much, they named one of the rapids in his honor.
George truly enjoyed each and every moment of his life ~ he never looked backward and never took things for granted. He always took the time to exchange a kind greeting with a neighbor or friend. He was very proud of the fact that he learned to Slalom water-ski and ice skate during his mature years. He loved animals especially horses and his favorite cat Tara brought sunshine to his life every day.
George was a kind soul and will be missed by the many who he touched along the way.
Please help us keep George in our prayers and memories.
