George Anthony Ricaurte, 64, passed away peacefully at Jefferson Health Care on October 14, 2019.
George was born on March 29, 1955 in Quito, Ecuador. He was the son of Jorge and Frances (McManus) Ricaurte.
George loved to travel. He would enjoy visiting anyplace that he could admire the beautiful scenery. He was also an avid Ohio State fan.
Anyone who knew George, knew that he had an excellent memory, often remembering exactly how old you were and how many years you had on him and your phone number.
He also had quite the collection of caps from all over the world. When friends and family would travel, they would always bring a hat back for George.
