George Warren Eros|
It is with great sadness I announce the passing of my father, George Warren Eros, on Saturday morning, January 26, 2013.
Born in Budapest, Hungary, he emigrated to the U.S. at the age of seven with his parents during the Great Depression. He started his life in America selling Liberty magazines on the street to have food for dinner. He gained success at an early age and provided an extraordinary life for his family. More importantly, his profound capacity for love touched everyone with whom he came in contact. He was a kind, generous, thoughtful, and brilliant man who helped many and talked little about it. He was inspiring and inspired. An exceptionally well-rounded man who loved the arts, literature and music and who often cited lengthy poems and Shakespearean soliloquies from memory. His every venture was successful and his life an example of the deepest unconditional love one human could demonstrate toward others.
He lived in Los Angeles until 1957 when he moved to Mercer Island and then Magnolia. His father was an attorney in Budapest and his mother a most uniquely charming woman.
He was loved and adored by all who knew him. He will be sorely missed.
George Eros was predeceased by his wife Rosalyn and is survived by his two daughters Heidi Eros and Regina Bielka.
I thank our friends and extended family for deeply enriching his life.
No services will be held as per his request. There will be a gathering to celebrate his life. All friends will be informed by written invitation at a future time.
