GEORGE C. SCHYMACHER Obituary
Schymacher, George C.

January 26, 1938 - April 14, 2014

The family of George C. Schumacher is sad to announce his sudden passing from complications resulting from a recent surgery.

George is the eldest son of the late Hans and Margaret Schumacher who resided in San Marino, California. George graduated from Mission High School in 1956, and Occidental College in 1960 with a BS in Economics. He continued his graduate studies in real estate at UCLA.

After college George served in the National Guard as a staff sergeant. His first job out of college was in sales with General Electric in 1960. He broke into the commercial real estate business in 1963. In 1969, George co-founded Penta Pacific Properties in Los Angeles.

George was a "Larger than Life" figure in the industry and possessed a vibrant and high energy persona. He enjoyed respect and friendship from clients, investment partners, and fellow brokers with his in-depth professional knowledge and effective decision making. He cast a wide net throughout Southern California with his multi-faceted career as industrial developer, broker, joint venture investor, philanthropist, and community leader.

George was a renaissance man who possessed many talents. He would have been suited as a college professor; he loved to teach others about business subjects, along with inspiring "Life Lessons."

He was President of the Orange Co. SIOR Chapter in 1991, and on the national board in 1991; life member of AIR; past President of Santa Fe Springs Chamber of Commerce, and the city's "Person of the Year" in 1995. The Schumacher family has been a member of the Jonathan Club & Balboa Bay Clubs since the 1930's and 40's respectively. George served on the membership and art committees, served as vice president and was honored with the Club's Jonathan Trumbull Award in 1985.

George is survived by his wife, Bonny who resides in Newport Beach; children, Eric Knirk (Julie), Dr. Victoria Schumacher, Julie King (Bill), Natasha Rowan (Doug); 8 grandchildren; brother, John Schumacher; sister, Karen Poindexter (Jim); preceded in death by sister, Susan Robertson (Bill).

A Life Well Lived……He will be missed by many. God Bless him.
