George Joseph Chiamulera was a modest man, quiet and observant in his ways. He was trustworthy and traditional in his approach to his life and in his relationships. He was tough-minded with the kind of “stick to it” attitude that earned the respect of all who knew him. He was also a man who was meticulous, carefully disciplined, and orderly in virtually everything he undertook. Realistic about life, he was always at the ready, prepared to take on responsibility. With a height of 6’ 4”, George will be remembered as a gentle giant to many.

His parents were Giovanni Chiamulera and Ida Coletti. George was raised in Bronx, New York. He was brought up to be self-confident and dependable. These were traits that would serve him well throughout his life.

George was raised with nine siblings, John, William, Mary, Delia, Catherine, Norma, Vera, Evelyn and Harry. A tenth sibling, Joseph, died in childhood. George was constantly involved in activities with his brothers and sisters. George and his siblings may have had the typical rivalries while growing up but George was always consistently loyal to his family.

George was quiet and introspective and his teachers and even his friends generally thought of him as being a serious person. He graduated from Evander Childs High School in 1944. He enjoyed some courses more than others, having favorite classes and teachers. George was a very logical person who enjoyed learning about factual information. Using his exceptional memory, he was able to learn much through observation. George always seemed to have a command of the facts and was able to make it seem as though he could easily master any problem that might be presented to him. After high school, George enlisted in the Army Air Corp during the final years of WWII. Upon discharge from the Army Air Corp, George attended some college at New York University, studying accounting.

George was an Army Air Corp veteran. He was in the Army Air Corp from June 21, 1944 to November 17, 1946. He entered into the service at Fort Dix, New Jersey during WWII. George was a Radio Mechanic, Military Policeman, Radar Mechanic, Bombardment. Through his hard work and dedication, he achieved the rank of Sergeant. He received praise for his valor, including being awarded Good Conduct Medal, American Theater Ribbon, and World War II Victory Medal. A literal thinker who possessed a calm exterior, George seemed to enjoy the routines set forth by the military. His results-oriented approach to things made him committed to the job, and he understood well his role in serving his country.

George met his true love, Margaret Nicholson, on a blind date on February 12, 1952 at Bear Mountain, New York. George and Margaret were married for 62 years, until her death in 2016. George brought the same traditional values in his marriage to bear on how he raised his children. George and Margaret were blessed with four children; George, Joanne, Paul, Robert. They were also blessed with 8 granchildren; Brian, Sarah, Georgie, Helen, Anna, Robert, Anthony, and Chelsea.

George greatly enjoyed what he did for a living. He was a hard worker who expected the same in return from his co-workers. He was an efficient worker, one who paid careful attention to detail, allowing sufficient time to complete one task before moving on to the next. As a young man George worked for brief time at Western Electric. After leaving Western Electric, George went to work with the Social Security Administration. George raised through the ranks at Social Security and ended up as the Deputy Director within the Division Disability Program. George worked hard to be a team player, doing what was necessary in order to get the job done and retiring January 1982.

George liked to experience things first-hand as well as learn about them. This trait carried over into his hobbies, where he was very methodical in how he organized his activities and categorized things. His favorite pursuits were being an amateur farmer, wood worker, and working on his lawn. Some of George's carved duck decoys being are still being used today by his family and friends. George would often be found reading a book to feed his thirst of knowledge. George was content to enjoy his hobbies alone but was also willing to share his interests with others.

George Joseph Chiamulera passed away on March 31, 2019 at Brightview, Towson. He was the loving husband of the late Margaret A. Chiamulera for 62 years; beloved father of George W. Chiamulera and his wife Claire, Joanne Stephen and her husband Harry, Paul T. Chiamulera and his wife Dodie and Robert J. Chiamulera and his Wife Billie Jo; brother of John and William Chiamulera; cherished grandfather of Brian and Sarah Stephen, Georgie and her fiancée Matt, Helen, Anna, Robert and his wife Alicia, Anthony, and Chelsea Chiamulera.
