On Saturday, March 9th George Joseph Mack passed away surrounded by the love of his family. George was the proud father of two children, Spencer and Arielle. George is survived by his son Spencer, his wife, Clare and their daughter, Charlotte  and Arielle  and her husband, Darryl, and their newborn son, Alfred, and his former spouse, Amy.

Born on September 13, 1958 in Wilkes Barre, PA, George was the son of Walter J. Mack and Peggy (Yurchisin) Mack. George has three siblings, Susan (Mack) Cox, Peggy (Mack) Stocum and Walter Mack (Maureen) and many nieces and nephews. His childhood in the Philadelphia area laid the foundation for a life filled with adventure and accomplishment.

George attended Wissahickon High School, graduating in 1976. His thirst for knowledge and passion for healing led him to pursue higher education at Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA where he graduated in 1980. He then went on to achieve his dream of becoming a cardio thoracic surgeon, graduating in 1984 from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Throughout his career as a Cardio-thoracic Surgeon, George’s dedication and skill were evident to all who knew him. He approached his work with a tireless work ethic and a compassionate heart, leaving a lasting impact on his patients and colleagues alike.

In his leisure time, George found joy exploring the great outdoors and pursuing his passions for skiing, golfing and fly fishing. His love for adventure was infectious and he cherished every moment spent in nature’s embrace. In his retirement, George spent several years recently in Telluride, CO with his family pursuing his passions, celebrating the holidays, enjoying excellent food, laughter, skiing and creating lasting memories. 

Above all, George was immensely proud of his children, Spencer and Arielle, whom he spoke of often with deep affection and pride. He instilled in them his values of hard work, perseverance, and a love for adventure, knowing they would carry on his legacy with honor.

George fought a courageous battle  with his health in his more recent years. He continued pursuing his passions of fishing and golfing in Bozeman, Montana and always enjoyed family time. George was part of creating many wonderful memories. His adventurous spirit, unwavering determination, and love for his family will forever be remembered and cherished by all who had the privilege of knowing him. 

A celebration of George’s life will be held on Saturday, May 25 in the New Hope, PA area. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made to the Huntington’s Disease Society of America in his honor.
