George P. LaMarra passed away Feb 27, 2018 after a valiant two year battle with leukemia. He is survived by long time domestic partner, Judy Perrine, his parents Barbara LaMarra (nee Papazian) and Peter A. LaMarra; siblings Barbara “Babs’ DeBrielle (Gary), brother Steven LaMarra and sister-in-law Kathy. He is predeceased by his brother Peter.

George was known for riding his bicycle throughout Collingswood and Philadelphia. He would take great joy in biking for various fundraisers; sometimes taking him as far as Wildwood. He enjoyed being outdoors, camping and loved animals. He will always be remembered as a natural caretaker; often helping family, friends and neighbors with whatever they needed. George was a proud U.S. Marine and liked to share stories of his time spent in the service. Never having children of his own, George formed close bonds with his many nieces and nephews: Alicia Crothers (Jeff), Peter, Nick, Valerie, Tara Mahon, Gary DeBrielle (Jennifer), Julia, Luke and Olivia. George also had 5 great grand nieces and nephews. He will also be remembered dearly by his longtime friend John Martin (Jeanie).

Family and friends are invited to the Memorial Service at BLAKE-DOYLE Funeral Home 226 W. Collings Ave, Collingswood, NJ, Friday March 9th, 2018, 6:00-9:00PM, to honor George’s life. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully suggests donations be made in George’s memory to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at www.LLS.org.

To the Lamarra family,
George was a great guy and mentor for me in high school. He got me to try out for wrestling and would always help me learn more about the sport. He was someone I always looked up to. I will never forget George or Pete. Two good men. John Marr
