 Obituario de George C. Egbert
George C. Egbert passed away peacefully on Monday, March 13th. He was 89 years old. George was born in Ogden, Pennsylvania on January 10th, 1934. Following the entry of the United States into the Second World War and his father’s decision to enlist in the US Navy, George and his younger sister, Elizabeth, moved with his parents to Cape May, NJ in 1942 – the community that he would call home for the rest of his life. Following graduation from Cape May High School (where he was an accomplished four-letter athlete), George followed his father’s and grandfather’s example and enlisted in the United States Navy. This decision brought him first to the Naval Air Technical Training Center at Norman Oklahoma, where George began learning about and working upon airplanes, developing expertise that would serve him well later in life. His training complete, George shipped out from San Francisco and headed to the Naval Air Station at Barbers Point on Oahu. His work servicing naval aircraft brought him to various islands throughout the Pacific, including Midway, Wake Island, and Kwajalein. It was during his time in the Marshall Islands that he witnessed the infamous Hydrogen Bomb detonation at nearby Bikini Atoll in 1954. George would obtain the rank of petty officer second class before honorably concluding his naval service in 1956. In 1959, George began his career as an airplane mechanic and inspector with United Airlines at Philadelphia International Airport. He was a proud member of International Machinists Local 1776 and a senior member of District Lodge 141’s Flight Safety Committee, in which capacity he often worked directly with the National Transportation Safety Board and was involved with several crash investigations. He retired from United Airlines in 1999. George retained a strong interest in sports throughout his life; a particularly avid football fan, he was an Eagles season ticket holder since 1960. Predeceased by his father, George, his mother, Ann, and his younger sister, Elizabeth, George leaves behind a large and loving family of nieces and nephews, including Victoria (and Kenny) Manganiello, Christine (and David) Peterson, Liz (and Alan) Mycek, Bruce (and Josie) Woods, Steven (and Cindy McPherson) Woods, and Raymond (and Erin Finn) Saraceni. Grandnieces and nephews: Kevin Woods, Christopher (and Jodie Ann) Woods, Eric (and Jillian) Woods, Kathryn (and Martin) Struthers, Amanda Russell, Tori Ann (and Michael) Mould, Edward H. Devine V (and Crystal Devine), Lauren Devine, Kelliann Devine, Ryan Devine, Cassandra (and Matthew) Van O’Linda, Matthew Mycek and Marissa Mycek. Great grandnieces and nephews: Troy Woods, Ellie Woods, Tyler Struthers, Kaitlyn Struthers, Ben Edward Mould, Elizabeth Gladys Mould, Calvin Van O’Linda, Ember Ann Van O’Linda, Edward H. Devine VI, Deni Mae Devine, and Lily James Devine. We’ll miss you, Uncle George! A viewing is scheduled for 10:00 am on Friday, March 24, 2023, at Parish Of St. John Neumann - St. John of God Campus (680 Town Bank Road, North Cape May, New Jersey 08204), followed by a Funeral Mass at 11:00 am, and burial to immediately follow at Cold Spring Cemetery (780 Seashore Rd, Cape May, New Jersey 08204).
