Staten Island, NY
George Eugene Giovinazzo Beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend, 88 George is a lifelong Staten Islander and a graduate of Port Richmond High School. Prior to working as a Lieutenant in the FDNY, George also served in the United States Army and for a brief time in the NYPD. He was born to Joseph and Maria Giovinazzo and was predeceased by his eight siblings Rose, Vee, Millie, Josephine, Irene, Jerry, Tony, and Frank. George is survived by his sister-in-law, Isabelle, cherished former wife and friend, Arlene, loving daughter Christine and son-in-law Tom as well as his four beloved grandsons, TJ, Mikey, Danny and Ryan. In his earlier years, George enjoyed playing tennis, skiing and was a member of the Staten Island Ski Club. He also played golf and led the 'All Hands' Golf Club for many years. Family meant everything to George. He loved spending time with his siblings and their families. George's life was most fulfilled when he became a grandfather 19 years ago. It was obvious from the smile on his face and sparkle in his eye that he was his happiest when he proudly watched each grandson excel in their sporting and academic endeavors. Pop could always be found sitting behind the backstop at a baseball game or on the front bleacher at the high school basketball game. Family and friends can bid farewell on Thursday, Sept 2 from 3-5 and 7-9 p.m. at the John Vincent Scalia Home for Funerals, 28 Eltingville Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10312. A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Friday, Sept. 3, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Anthony of Padua R.C. Church, 251 Franklin St, Hightstown, NJ 08520.

My younger brother Tommy was George´s beloved son-in-law. He made my brother feel like his own son and George´s love extended to our family as well. He was the type of person whose face lit up when you walked in the room, as he met you with a firm handshake AND a kiss. He fiercely loved his family and friends and consumed the time reminiscing on past games he watched his grandsons play or special times he shared with his family and friends. My life is better because George was in it, and I like all who met him will miss him terribly. Rest in peace George, we love you.
