George Michael DiCostanzo

George Michael DiCostanzo, beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend, passed away peacefully on June 8, 2022.

George was born on October 9, 1942 in Staten Island, NY to the late Lillian Jeffers and Louis DiCostanzo. He was also predeceased by his brothers, Louis and Lawrence DiCostanzo.

Surviving George is his beautiful wife of 53 years, Barbara, along with his siblings, Johanna, Maureen (Nick), Janice (Wayne) and Donald; his children, Christine (Richard), Cheryl (David), Jim (Sherry); his grandchildren, Jessica (David), Adam (Chelsea), Gina (Cameron); and great-grandchildren, DJ, Levi, Olivia, David, Declan, Tegan and Alexis.

George was a man of many passions. He enjoyed working on his 1957 Corvette and entering it in local auto shows, which he often won. He was an adult umpire and a fixture in the Northwest Virginia softball community from 1986 until his dying day. George enjoyed traveling with his family. He has traveled the country in numerous RVs with his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren over the years. He often remembered being chased by bison in Montana or how much fun we had having theme parties in Pennsylvania. George also had a passion for photography and NEVER missed a memory. Most of all, George was passionate about just spending time and making memories with his loved ones. He spent most of his time teaching kids sports, making up silly games or songs, dancing, and making sure we all knew how much we were loved.

The family will receive friends on Friday, June 17 at Maddox Funeral Home from 6:00 p.m. to – 8:00 p.m.
