George M. Geraci, 65

November 13, 2017

George M. Geraci, 65, of Lancaster, passed away Monday, November 13, 2017 at the Lancaster General Hospital. He was born in Lancaster to the late Charles J., Sr. and Theresa A. Long Geraci.

A graduate of Lancaster Catholic High School, George worked as a machine operator at the Armstrong floor plant in Lancaster for over 30 years. George was a great human being who loved life. He was a very kind and generous person, always helping those in need. He treasured his many friendships, but most important was his love of family.

He was a member of St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church. Always in pursuit of a challenging game of golf, George enjoyed traveling with his buddies to play at various courses. He also enjoyed bowling, basketball and softball and watching the Phillies.

The one constant in George’s life was the gathering of friends and family at Valentino’s Café. It was the special place for sharing stories and making memories.

George is survived by his brother Charles J. Geraci, Jr., husband of Ellen M. of New Providence and sister Theresa H., wife of Michael B. Ditzler of Lancaster; two nieces, Nina M. Geraci and Melissa Ann, wife of Michael Youtz; great-niece Miah S. Cramer and nephews Harry Connell, husband of Kristy and Derick D. Ditzler, husband of Tonia. He was preceded in death by his brother Daniel J. Geraci.

The family will greet friends from 9 AM to 12 PM, followed by a memorial service at noon, on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at the Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home & Crematory, 414 E. King St., Lancaster, PA 17602. A celebration of George’s life will be held at Valentino’s Café following the service. Private interment will be in St. Anthony Catholic Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association, 610 Community Way, Lancaster, PA 17603.

Theresa,
    Very sorry to hear of the passing of George.  He was quite the character in high school and I always got a kick of his antics, driving Fr. Taylor nuts.   Keep the good memories close to your heart and he will always be with you.

Hi Charlie, 
I’m so sorry to hear that George passed. He was a great guy. We where never close but we were friends for a long long time. ( Danny to too!) You guys have been in my thoughts periodically for close to 60 years, and always held a special place in not just my heart but also in Maria’s heart also. She was in dannys class in school. Before I met her. And we started going together in 1963. Yeah, we’ve been friends a long time and with Maria’s passing I know the feeling of loss you have. Lord willing I’ll see you on the second. Take care my friend
