Obituary

Granville

On Sunday, December 15, 2019, George W Harbeson Jr, loving husband, father, grandfather and brother, went home to God at the age of 72.

George was born on July 11, 1947 in Teaneck NJ to Helen and George W. Harbeson Sr. He proudly served his country in the Army from 1968-1971 and was stationed in Vietnam and Germany.

After the Army, he worked for several companies but found his forever job at General Electric in Waterford as a pipefitter where he worked for 26 years.

He married Kathleen Russell on July 6, 1968. They were married for 23 years and had 3 children.

On May 22, 1999, he married Carol Harbeson. They had 20 years together which was just too short but was filled with love, adventure and laughter.

George was preceded in death by his parents, Helen and George W Harbeson Sr. He is survived by his loving wife, Carol; his children Kymberley and Rajiv Seth, George Harbeson III and his partner Mary Helen Colvin and Jonathan Harbeson and his partner Meghan Bevins.

He leaves behind 3 sisters: Pat and David Sims, Helene Harbeson and Mary and Tom Messore as well as cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

George was such a big presence for many people...his death leaves a large hole in the hearts and lives of those who knew him well.

Very sorry to hear of George’s passing. He was a great guy with a great sense of humor. We worked together at GE and had many social engagements always ending in a laugh. George will be sadly missed. Our condolences Carol to you and your family.

Sheila and I will miss George very much. He was always a good and helpful neighbor, getting us out of jams that us suburbs grown folks could not handle, Snow and Fallen trees especially. He was fun to be with, good stories and a very good scotch whiskey drinking buddy. Take heart in knowing he was yours for many years, lived a good life and will ever be remembered by us and those who loved him.
