George W. Patcigo
August 29, 1927 – April 20, 2018
George William Patcigo passed away April 20, 2018, in Westminster, Colorado. He was born August 29, 1927, in Schenectady, NY, to Frank and Bertha (Miller). George was preceded in death by his wife of almost 59 years, Rachel Lillian (Quinion). He is survived by his brother, Donald Parker Sr. and wife Regina; four children, Andrew, Charles, Mary, and Susan; eight grandchildren; thirteen great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. George graduated from Mount Pleasant High School. He served in the US Navy from February 1946 to December 1947. George then attended Union College. He worked for GE for several years before switching to AT&T, where he worked until retirement. While living in Schenectady, George was very active in the community: leading Boy Scout Troop 49, heading the Rotterdam Rescue Squad, bowling, and teaching First Aid Courses. He relocated with his family to Denver, Colorado, in 1978. He enjoyed reading, cycling, and travelling with his wife. George’s volunteer work in the Denver area included CenturyLink Pioneers of America, MS Society, Beep Baseball, and various Church functions. He will be greatly missed by family and friends who knew and loved him very much, as he never met a stranger and always had a smile and joke for everyone. A Memorial Service will be held at Olinger Moore Howard Chapel, 4345 West 46th Ave. on Friday, May 4, 2018, at 11:00 A.M., will be officiated by Dr. Richard A. Vickery, Jr., Reverend.

George was one of the kindest people I've ever known. He was the only person that I've met who was able to pull off wearing a bow tie without looking like a clown. I worked with him for a number of years and never encountered a day when he did not greet me with a smile and a joke (often times, the same one...but it didn't matter). He was a fast talker, in a very good way, with plenty of good stories about his home town. He was a hard worker and could always be counted on to lend a helping hand. When he was the 'phone guy' at Saint Joseph's hospital, EVERYBODY in the place knew him. He was a great guy.

Always remember the shaker of Manhattans at Grandma Patcigo’s
House during the Holidays.
Also he called my Dad every Sunday for many years So nice❤️
I’m happy Dad and George bonded in their later years.
Unfortunately my Dad has Alzheimer’s and he is unable to attend.
My deepest sympathy to your families.
