George Conrad Kaspar, 60, of South Gate, California, died unexpectedly Monday, February 22, 2010 at home.

Services were held Saturday, February 27 at Messiah Lutheran Church, Downey, California, with the Rev. Michael Hayes officiating. Burial was at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Cypress, California.

George was born May 14, 1949 in Long Beach, California, the son of H. George and Joan Elizabeth (Hess) Kaspar. He married Christine Frerichs on April 22, 1972.  George retired from the J.C. Penney company after 38 years.

George enjoyed his retirement, honing his cooking skills, playing golf, and spending time with his granddaughters, the “Lu-Lu Cousins,” the loves of his life. Sadly, he passed away before the births of another granddaughter and a grandson. He also was the patriarch of a group of family and friends who went camping every summer at Devil’s Postpile in the Sierras. He was an elder at Messiah Lutheran and active in his faith. He led Bible studies and accompanied Pastor Mike on visitations.

George is survived by his wife of 37 years, Chris; a son, Michael (Sabrina) of Upland, California; a daughter, Amy Silva (Jon) of Irvine, California; a sister, Sue Welker (Ken) of South Gate, California; a brother, John (Robin) of Richmond, Virginia; several nieces and nephews; and three grandchildren, Emily, Lauren and Makayla.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be sent to Messiah Lutheran Church, 10711 Paramount  Blvd., Downey, CA 90241.


We lost a good man that day. We love you, George.
