George Park Killian V, born 10-02-47, died peacefully on 10-07-12 after a brief illness. Born in Washington, D.C., George lived in Mesa, AZ for over 30 years, arriving from Topeka, KS. He is survived by his longtime companion, Kathi Metzger, his dear friends Coren & Charlie Panzino of Wilmington, MA, and Byron & Chan Lipkins of Tempe, AZ, and his cherished pets - Nicky the cat and parakeets Buzz & Scooby. George was truly one-of-a-kind with a style all his own. He was very artistic and found his passion late in life, creating beautiful earrings and jewelry for family and friends. George's ashes will be scattered in many of the places where he loved to spend time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in George's memory to the Arizona Humane Society or Boyce Thompson Arboretum. A celebration of George's life will be held at a future date.
