Sunrise: November 25, 1930 Sunset: July 27, 2022
Formerly of Elmsford, Hastings-on-Hudson, and Cold Spring, New York. Recently resided in Emerald Peek Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Peekskill New York. The "Class Adonis," he graduated from Alexander Hamilton High School in Elmsford in 1949.
Fiercely independent and movie-star handsome, George was a printer by trade and a carpenter by hobby. A diligent and hard-working man, he instilled in his four children a strong work ethic. He was inherently stubborn, a trait that was especially exhibited when he strongly resisted owning a computer ("Why would I need one?" was a common refrain). His daughter persevered and surprised him with a personal computer when he was 81. He effortlessly learned to navigate a world including email, YouTube and online banking; he particularly loved playing solitaire and watching André Rieu videos. He also enjoyed tending to the flowers and tomato plants on his mobile home property in Cold Spring.
George loved good food and good company. He was grateful for any meal he did not have to cook! A special shoutout to Charlene and Robert Ranghelli, his "adopted" family, who for many years ensured he had a beautiful Christmas full of gourmet food, love and laughter. May his body be whole again as he reunites with his beloved sons (George III and Gregory), brothers (Jack and Henry), and parents (Matilda Wylock and George Tully, Sr.). Among his survivors are his daughters, Lori Tully-Barnett of Hastings-on-Hudson and Kathleen Vitola of Yonkers, his sister, Patricia Berens, of New York City, and his brother, James Tully, of Gainesville, GA. Cheers to you, Pops! Until we meet again!
Interment was on August 1, 2022, in Mount Hope Cemetery.
