George M. Washington | Age 68


George Washington passed away at the age of 68, a life marked by his infectious laughter, his unwavering kindness, and his dedication to fostering community.

George was deeply rooted in the historic city of Syracuse, New York, where he was a revered high school history teacher. His passion for history was only matched by his commitment to his students, whom he inspired to learn from the past to make a better future.

Beyond the classroom, George was a talented jazz musician, his trumpet serenading many through the nights at local clubs. He was a mentor to many young musicians, always encouraging them to pursue their dreams with vigor.

He is survived by his wife, Linda; their three children, Marcus, Angela, and Denise; and a legacy of music and education that will resonate for generations. George’s spirit will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all the lives he touched with his music and teachings.

George’s service will be held in a place as lively as his personality, at the local jazz club where he played for many years, next Sunday evening. Family, friends, and admirers are invited to celebrate his life, share stories, and enjoy the music he loved so much.
