Memorial service for David George

July 28, 1987 - Aug. 26, 2009

David "Davey" George, 22, of Park City, lost his life on Wednesday, August 26, in a mountain-bike accident in Park City.

Originally from Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, David leaves his parents, David and Deborah (Orciuch) George; two sisters, Kelli and Kara George; his paternal grandparents, Don and Caroline George all of Shrewsbury; his maternal grandmother, Shirley "Gram" Orciuch of Holden, Mass.; also survived by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, special friends, and his "Utah family."

Dave graduated from Shrewsbury High School in 2005. He excelled in sports and was captain and all star of the hockey and lacrosse teams. He continued his education at Quinsigamond and Holyoke CC. He moved to Park City two years ago to pursue his passion for the outdoors.

In Park City, Dave was employed by The Residences at the Chateaux at Deer Valley, where he worked in guest services. He made many friends and touched the hearts and lives of those he met. Dave was an adventurous young man. He loved skiing, snowboarding and surfing. He also enjoyed drop-in hockey at the PC Ice Arena, playing flag football at the field house, and could often be seen at concerts in the park.

He especially loved his extremely close family and friends. He had a passion for life and lived every day to the fullest. Dave’s smile, contagious laugh and sense of humor will never be forgotten.

A funeral mass was held Tuesday, September 1, 2009, at 10 a.m. at Saint Mary’s Church in Shrewsbury Mass.

Friends and relatives are invited to attend a memorial service (rain or shine) to be held on Thursday, October 1, 2009, at 5 p.m. on Guardsman’s Pass. (Just follow the Mine Road to the top of the hill.)

A reception will immediately follow the Service at the Wasatch Brew Pub on Main Street (upstairs).

All those who knew Dave are invited to attend and will include Dave’s family from Massachusetts.

Memorial donations can be made to David George Memorial Fund, c/o Zions Bank, Park City Branch, 1725 Uinta Way, Park City, UT 84098.
