Obituary

George Edward Homrighaus went to join his parents and brothers peacefully in his sleep on September 27, 2016 at age 71. He was preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Frances Homrighaus; and his brothers: Gerald (Bear), Martin, and twins, Robert and Ronald Homrighaus. George was a BOI born in St. Mary’s hospital September 20, 1945 and is survived by his brothers, Henry L., Jr., Christopher Michael, and Thomas John Homrighaus; his only daughter Corinna L. Homrighaus; and two grandsons, Dorian Harris and Kaleb Matthews.

George graduated from Ball High School and joined the U.S. Army as a cryptologist stationed in Alaska and was honorably discharged. He spent much of his career in Dallas, Texas in the retail liquor industry before returning to Galveston where he trained as a chef and was in the retail food business. After he retired he lived with his parents, caring for them in their later years. George was a great cook and they enjoyed the fruits of his labor for many years. George was a disabled veteran in his last years.
