In Memory

George Armand Forsyth

George Armand Forsyth

George worked in the Diplomatic Corp for most of his life. He eventually ended up working for a non-profit organization in the D.C. area when he was diagnosed with Liver Cancer, caused by Hepititis C that he had contracted when he was around 13 years old on a family vacation to Mexico. The Hepititis C hid in his liver until George was 49. He only had a few months warning before he lost his battle.  George is survived by Wife Anne and children Jane Fay and Michael.

George and his family lived down the street from us when we were both at Garden Oaks Elementary School.  He was my best friend.  We spent hours climbing his fig tree, building block churches, and creating elaborate clubs.  We teamed up for a talent show in 4th and 3rd grades (I was older) jitterbugging to Rock around the Clock.  Wish video had existed then!!

I once lost a watch at school.  Mrs Gale found it for me in the lost & found.  I was so happy to get the watch back.  She told me I needed to thank George Forsyth for finding it bringing it to the office.  I had never met George, but I met him & thanked him.  Funny how you never forget something like that.

I knew George.  In debate, I think.  A good kid and an accomplished man.  May he fly on to better worlds.

George was a very gifted teacher and apparently wore many other hats as well.  I remember a Houston Chronicle article about him and his students.  Apparently, he went onto another career after that. He was quite active in school activities - I believe journalism for one.  He was outgoing and charismatic - a good friend to all that knew him.

He was such a good friend to me in high school...and let's not forget how truly funny George was. Oh he made me laugh and smile every day. I was so lucky to have known him. I was so sad to find out that he died so young.

Through George's Mom, he worked for a Catholic TV production company/network.  George's wife, last I heard was working for a Catholic university in the Ojai Valley of Southern California, just north of Santa Barbara & Ventura.

I was so sorry to hear of George's untimely death. He was the first real date I ever had. We became very good friends throughout high school.
