ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our beloved son George Avery. We were so very blessed to have him in our lives for 20 years. George has a beautiful soul, he loved with his whole heart, and will be forever missed by all who knew him. 

George gave us so many wonderful memories, he was creative, intelligent, and had a wonderful sense of humor. George was a wonderful son, brother, a friend to all, who spread joy wherever he went. He enjoyed cooking and sharing his creations with friends and coworkers. George always made time to lend a supportive ear when needed. George had so much to offer this world but was taken from us too soon. 

We love to hear stories about George, please feel free to share your memories of George with us.

I cannot believe that George has been gone 3 years now and it has to be even more incomprehensible for his family. His personality was larger than life and I have to believe that it is shining thru in the heavens. His energy & enthusiasm for whatever he was doing was contagious to those around him. George will always be in my heart and the heart of my kids who are so very proud to call him a friend. George, I hope heaven is full of art, music and creativity for you.

My family has known George and his family since they first moved to town years ago. It was so great to be friends and neighbors! George was always right in the middle of all our get-togethers, sharing his great stories, humor and artwork. He had a way about him that was enveloping and comforting and with such a great smile! It was easy to love George, a kind and gentle old-soul. We will forever miss him and his shining light. Peace and love to you George.

George was an exteremely brilliant man. During our shop days he tought me something new almost daily. He was one of the kindest, gentlest souls Ive ever met. Literally the type of guy to give you the shirt off his back. George felt like a brother to me, he was always there to talk when times got tough. We had lots of adventures together, lots of laughs and even some cries. Seriously gone way too soon. I think about him and my friend Seth daily and I know theyre watching over me every day. George if youre reading this I love and miss you immensely. You're gone but totally not forgotten.

George, you were a great addition to our family, the great friend you were to Nayomi, the things you helped her through. You were there for her in her time of need after her car accident, just dropping plans to come here and cheer you up when I told you she was at her lowest and lonely, when no one besides her father and I were here for her. You always had a way with words and a great sense of life. Always smiling even when you were so late Nayomi wanted to kick your butt...lol! We loved having you with us when we went to the drag races in New York, you were way too funny! You may have left but you left us with wonderful memories and a great sense of life. Your legacy lives on forever in all of our hearts George. ❤

George it has been over 2 years now. I have had a lot of coping to do since you left. But man I will tell you it is with upmost happiness that I have made it to a stage in my life that I know you are still here to guide me and be the angel around me. I love you so very much each and every day and want to thank God for Donna for making such a beautiful website.

Love you brother, everyday and always will <3

his Life

Our Miracle Baby

George was our little miracle baby, born a whole month early. His brother Gordon was just 1 year, and 4 months old. George was in the NICU for 5 weeks where he seemed to learn to sleep and eat like clockwork! He came home on a heart monitor for a short time. He is truly our miracle baby, and I believe now that he is an angel that was sent down to be with us for 20 years. He taught us all so much about courage, kindness and selflessness. He is such a sweet, loving person and will be missed forever. 

Sweet Toddler

George was a beautiful toddler who was always on the move! He loved to swing on the swings, ride in the car and would quickly fall asleep in both. He would often spin in circles and amazingly, never got dizzy! George loved to play with his big brother Gordon and loved going over to his Auntie Ann's house and playing with his cousins, William and Allen.  He was such a loving little boy who would sweetly hold your hand and touch your face with such care and love.

Elementary School Days

Our family was living in Springfield, Massachusetts when George started preschool and Kindergarten. We moved to Florida for about 8 months following George's 1st grade year, returning to Springfield for 2nd grade. We lived with his Gram in Springfield until we found our current home in Blandford.

Kyle, George and Jeremy, Open Mic Night

Shared by Donna Avery on December 9, 2020
George's friend Kyle performed at various venues in the area, at open mic nights and on a couple of occasions he brought George and Jeremy along with him. Many times, Kyle would ask George to join him to sing a few songs and it meant so much to him. Thank you Jeremy for taking these videos, they are treasured.

My Boys & George

Shared by LeeAnn Thompson on December 3, 2020
I can still remember when Gordon & Donna moved into our neighborhood along with their boys.  My boys, Sam & Ben, were thrilled to have boys around their age only 2 houses away.  The four of them would play for endless hours either at our house, The Avery's house, my parents house(which was in the middle) or outside endless amounts of time.  They could easily play with Legos, make a fort, or video games but what always stood out to me was George's unbelievable creativity.  Not only was he the most creative of the group, but he had such passion about what he was doing.  I cannot even count all of the times he would stop over the house to show me something he had built or drawn with such pride and explaining all of the details to me.  My boys still cherish their memories with The Avery Boys.  We were devastated when we learned of the loss of George and will remember him and his family always.
