Raised in Parma, OH and attended St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland. George married Barbara and served the U.S. Army for 2 years at Ft. Carson, CO. In 1969 George moved his family out of Cleveland and set out on an entrepreneurial journey that most only dream of. This journey took George and his family to places like Fostoria, Tiffin and Port Clinton, Naples, FL and finally to Colorado.
George enjoyed the art of golfing and fishing, which was his real passion. He was also a talented artist and extremely creative not only with his artwork but also in business. It was this gift of creativity that helped him soar as an entrepreneur. George was an incredible provider of life’s necessities to his family while setting an admirable and exemplary level of Christian temperance.
Family vacations at rustic resorts, family gatherings on special occasions along with visiting family on Sundays were the strong foundations that he and his wife Barbara established for their children. This foundation further developed in the form of genealogical research, of the Zegiob family, which he selflessly and graciously shared with this larger family who will miss him greatly. Arrangements to be announced.
