OBITUARY

George B. Sugawa

April 3, 1951January 9, 2020

On January 9th, our teammate George was called up to the majors. He was equal parts kind, generous, stubborn, and hilarious — all things that made him easy to love as a husband, father, and friend. His gentle brand of teasing made you feel truly loved. Perhaps because it made you part of an inside joke that was special just to the two of you. An avid sports fan, he was passionate about the Miners, whoever was playing the Dallas Cowboys and, of course, his beloved Yankees. A baseball fan through-and-through, he played the game of life with the agility, class and poise of a hall of famer. It should be noted that he cussed like a ballplayer too. He's survived by his loving partner in crime Norma, his kids Melanie (and husband Adam) and Jason (and wife Kate), his brothers Hans and Michael, his sister Lorraine and his grandchildren Lucy, Carter, Milo and Millie.

The world has lost one of the good guys. I always felt that he was my mentor. I knew he would guide me in the right direction when I asked for help. He was there to move me to Oklahoma and when I left there he flew up to move me to Arizona. I always felt he had your back where ever you were. You will be missed. Guide us from Heaven now. My prayers and love to Norma, Jason, and Melanie .
