George A. Ricaurte
George Anthony Ricaurte, 64, passed away peacefully at Jefferson Health Care on October 14, 2019.
George was born on March 29, 1955, in Quito, Ecuador. He was the son of Jorge and Frances (McManus) Ricaurte.
George loved to travel. He would enjoy visiting any place that he could admire the beautiful scenery. He was also an avid Ohio State fan.
Anyone who knew George knew that he had an excellent memory, often remembering exactly how old you were and how many years you had on him and your phone number.
He also had quite the collection of caps from all over the world. When friends and family would travel, they would always bring a hat back for George.
George is survived by his parents; siblings, Patrick Ricaurte of Columbus, Anne Ricaurte of Conneaut, Mark (Teresa) Ricaurte of Columbus, Christopher (Laurie) Ricaurte of Chicago, IL, Helen Ricaurte of Columbus and Frank (Basma) Ricaurte of Westlake; nieces and nephews, Frankie, Sophia, Maria, Michael and Anthony.

I am so sorry to hear of George's passing. He was always so nice whenever I would see him in passing. When my Dad was still alive...he always wanted to know how he was doing. He truly had a heart of gold.
Thinking of you all!

My deepest sympathies to the Ricaurte family. George touched my heart from the moment we met, I will always cherish the friendship, memories and laughter that we have shared over the years. A special soul that I will never forget. May you spread your wings and soar to all of the places you only dreamed of...until we meet again.
