George E. Duessel, of Avalon, Age 80, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully, with his daughters by his side on April 5, 2022.
George was married to his love of his life, Dorothy, on February 4, 1967. They enjoyed traveling, playing bingo, cards, bowling, going to the casino and spending time with their family and grandchildren. The loss of his wife was devastating to him. The only peace we have as a family at this moment is knowing he is in heaven with our mother.
He is survived by his loving family, Sheila Schwartz (Dave) and Chris Stanton (Byron) and his five grandchildren: Daniel, Mollie, Abigail, Nicholas, and Logan. The grandkids will miss their Pappy more than anything. He was the best father and pappy anyone can ask for. He was great friends with Mark Armstrong and Jim Buckley, who treated him with nothing but kindness. The family thanks you.
George is survived by his loving sisters, Ginny Venanzio, Karen Toal, Stacey Duessel and Susan Duessel and many nieces and nephews.
He was a member of the American Legion Post #116 and a member of the Elks. He loved listening to the Banjo club play.
We would love for you to come to honor George’s life, otherwise known as Pappy, Pooser, Dawg and Butch, at Devlin Funeral Home on Sunday, April 10, 2022, from 2-6 p.m. A mass of Christian Burial at Assumption Church in Bellevue, April 11, 2022, at 10:00 a.m.
So so sorry to hear of George’s passing. He was a great friend of my Dad SYL Heller. They were great buddies. Bingo, Banjo Club and the American Legion. I’m so sorry for your loss and my loss to it’s sad to see all the old buddies passing. May you Rest In Peace George and I know your up in heaven playing cards with my Daddy.
Chris, Sheila and family, we are deeply sorry for your loss. George was the nicest friend and neighbor anyone could ask for. He would do anything for you. Will “miss” those times out in the cold, tag-teaming getting rid of the snow off of our shared driveway and parking pad. We had many chats out in the back not keeping track of time to get done what we should have been doing instead of conversing.
