George A. Germain (Jorge from Galway), age 49, passed away on Friday, March 24, 2023 at Albany Medical Center surrounded by his loving family. He was born on January 24, 1974 in Saratoga Springs, NY, the son of Sally Denton Germain and the late Thomas Germain, Sr.
George started his career working for PDI Transport, then as a driver for Conway Freight and was currently a driver for Mirabito Energy Products. He always had a great sense of humor, made everyone laugh and was the life of every party. George was always there to lend a helping hand to anybody. He had such a friendly and warm personality, which allowed him to engage in conversation with everyone he met. His greatest joys were his two daughters, whom he cherished; his man cave; his flower and vegetable gardens; his pristine lawn; and riding his dune buggy. One of his favorite pastime activities was making fudge for everyone to enjoy!
George is survived by his beloved wife Peggy of 23 years, daughters Rachel and Taylor, mother Sally, stepmother Linda, brothers JR (Elizabeth) and Scott (Audra), sister Amy Sprague, along with several nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who will miss him dearly.
Family and friends are invited to calling hours on Monday, April 3rd from 3:00pm to 5:00pm at Compassionate Funeral Care, 402 Maple Ave. (Rte 9 and/or Marion Ave.), Saratoga Springs, NY. A service will be held immediately following calling hours.
