John Francis George III Obituary
John Francis George III FAIRFAX - John Francis (Frank) George III died April 11, 2014 at home surrounded by family. Frank was admired for his strength, courage and determination through his long battle with multiple myeloma. Frank was born January 19, 1944 in Norfolk, Virginia to John Francis George, Jr and Suzanne Lewis George. He attended Norfolk Academy followed by the University of Virginia and the University of Virginia School of Law. Frank left the East Coast after law school, headed for California where he practiced law as a masterful and highly respected trial lawyer for over 40 years. Frank is survived by his wife, Linda McKenzie George; three daughters, Victoria and her husband Adam Wise, Alexandra, and Jesslyn; granddaughter Shelby Wise; and sister and brother-in-law, Victoria and Barton Myers. Frank's fatherly love and devotion extended to his beloved nieces and nephews who cheered him greatly throughout the final years of his life. Frank's passions were many including the family home in Fairfax, mid-century furniture and art, classic cars, reading and sailing. From his days as a teenager racing hydroplanes and working as a lifeguard Frank loved being on the beach and in the water whether Virginia Beach, Stinson Beach, Hawaii, Puget Sound or the Baltic Sea. He most enjoyed time with his family, daughters and precious granddaughter. Frank shared his passion, enthusiasm, wit and humor with everyone around him, and those who knew Frank felt privileged to have him in their lives. A special thank you to Heartland Hospice Care who assisted the family in caring for Frank at home, and to the doctors and staff at Kentfield Rehabilitation & Specialty Hospital who enabled the family to bring Frank home for the final days of his life. Keeping to his wishes there will be no memorial service.
