George C. Condon - Beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather, and Great Grandfather, born August 13, 1917, George C. Condon died peacefully on November 8, 2018, at Brookdale Sakonnet Bay in Tiverton, RI. He was born in Brodhead, WI, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a BS in Accounting.
He was married to his sweetheart, Mary Ellen Stauffacher, for 75 wonderful years. Mary Ellen died two years ago. George is survived by his children: Sue (Bruce) Guenther of Silver Spring, MD; Elizabeth (Thomas) Glembocki, of Apex, NC; Mary (John) Benziger, of South China, ME; Holly Condon (Darrel Hollister), of Fairfax Station, VA.; and his devoted daughter-in-law Barbara Condon of Portsmouth, RI. He has twelve grandchildren: Stephen Guenther, Jeffrey Condon, Heather (Condon) Pillis, Corrie (Condon) Quintard, Katherine (Condon) Parker, Joe Glembocki, Laura (Benziger) Ker, David Benziger, Peter Benziger, Mary (Benziger) Harris, Kristin Hollister, and Michael Hollister; and eighteen great grandchildren, Audrey and Daphne Condon; Eva and Lilly Guenther; Nathaniel, Addison, and Anderson Pillis; Paige and Emily Glembocki; Conor and Freddy Ker; Kayleigh, Caitlyn, Keagan, and newborn Quintard; Austin, and Mia Harris; and Emmaline Parker.
He was preceded in death by his wife; his son, William Condon of Portsmouth, RI; his parents; his twin brother, brother, and three sisters.
George was a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy in WWII, and had a 38-year career in accounting management with U.S. Steel. He volunteered in his church and community; loved music, sports, and travel; but, the joy of his life was his adored wife Mary and his wonderful family. George was an honorable man and a quintessential gentleman. He was caring and supportive, and a role model for the family who loved and revered him. He was loyal and considerate, and made a positive impression on everyone he met. He lived a long life well, and will live on in our cherished memories.
We will have a family celebration of his life next summer in Maine.
In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to Visiting Nurse Home and Hospice, 1184 East Main Road, Portsmouth, RI 02871.
