George E. Paster, (aka Pastuszak), 89, died May 6 after a short illness at Danbury Hospital. He was born in Stamford and lived there until he retired to Stuart, FL with his beloved wife Ann, deceased. George lived life fully as a loyal employee of MarLe Co., a talented football player, and consummate musician, maintaining his trumpet playing until his eighties.

He is survived by his daughter Georgann, son-in-law Bob Frey of Ridgefield, son Ted Paster, daughter-in-law Diane of Brookfield, his grandsons Daniel and Tyler, and granddaughter Allie. In addition, his extended family of nieces and nephews will remember him with love and humor. A private family burial will take place at Fairfield Memorial Park.
