George B. Farina
1954 - 2016
WATERVILLE - George B. Farina, 61, passed away quietly at his home in Waterville on Feb. 15, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Summit, N.J. on Dec. 3, 1954, the son of Lawrence B. and Reba (White) Farina.
Born in Summit, but raised in Washington, DC, George had the advantage of having grandparents who owned a house on Great Pond. He spent his childhood summers there and kept in touch with some of those "kids" he played with up until he passed away; Diane Fitzkee, David and Cindy Fitzkee, Janice and Ray Brown who all ventured up every summer, eventually with their kids, too.
It was always George's dream to live and work in Maine. For the past 11 years, he worked at Inland Hospital in the IT department and won Inland's Champion Award for his exceptional customer service. He leaves behind many wonderful friendships he made while at Inland, especially Don and Wayne, and too many others to name individually.
He is survived by his wife, Robyn E. (Rosenthal) Farina; daughter, Ashley; brother, John and wife Connie; best friend, Matthew Morse; two cats, Bert and Ernie; and numerous cousins and their families.
He was a good son, a good brother, a good husband, a good father, and a good friend. He will be greatly missed. The family wishes to express their thanks and gratitude to his wonderful neighbors for their friendship and support, as well as to the staff of MaineGeneral HomeCare and Hospice for their care and kindness.
A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, March 5, 2016 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Inland Hospital Cafeteria, Kennedy Memorial Drive, Waterville, ME 04901.

In lieu of flowers, friends wishing may make donations
