George M. Duncan

December 28, 1940 - September 17, 2022
George M. Duncan

After 81 years full of love, memories, and (often off-color) humor, George Morris Duncan III passed away on September 17, 2022 in New Port Richey, Florida. To George, life’s greatest success was to have a loving family. Growing up in Matawan, New Jersey and serving in the Army, he started his family when he married Mary Jean in 1962. During their devoted sixty-year marriage, George and Mary Jean had two children, Michaele (Shelly) and George IV. Shelly and George IV grew up with a loving dad, coach, and hero—someone to pick up a backup dinner if Mary Jean’s steak just wouldn’t cut that night or to take them to the hospital (eventually) when they broke another bone. He was never more excited than when Nermine, his daughter-in-law, was “getting big” with his grandchildren, Nevine and George V, who were lucky to have a Poppop that went horseback riding with them, drove across the country to see their games and graduations, whispered not to tell their Nan when he slipped them extra cash, and always told them how proud he was. Following years of lobbying Nevine and her husband Ryan, George spent his last ten months with his greatest joy, his great-granddaughter Melina, and his happiest moments were holding her and watching her grow, laugh, and learn. And he could not wait for George V and his fiancé Kayla to tie the knot (and, of course, give him more great-grandbabies). George spent his last day in the care of Mary Jean, Shelly, George IV, Nermine, Nevine, Ryan, Melina, George V, and Kayla before he was relieved from this world to be with God.
George touched far beyond his immediate family. In New Jersey, Florida, and beyond, George’s family, friends, and neighbors knew that no ask was too much and he was always ready, willing, and happy to help. All phone calls had to include the latest updates on the kids and family he saw less than he would like, but who he never stopped thinking and talking about. George will be loved and missed more than he could imagine.
Visitation will be held at Michels and Lundquist Funeral Home in New Port Richey on Tuesday, September 20, from 5-7pm, with a service on Wednesday, September 21, at 10:30-11:30am. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to charity (George provided to Tunnel of Towers Foundation, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Shriners Hospitals for Children, and various cancer charities). As George would want, feel free to forgo black attire and wear colors if you are able to attend Tuesday or Wednesday. Please join us following Wednesday’s service at George and Nermine’s house.

    Frank and I can hardly remember a holiday or a celebration that did not include Mr. D. and MJ. I’ll never forget meeting them for the first time. Later, as the grandchildren came along they became Pop Pop & Nan even to us adults. Pop Pop was always joyful and lots of fun except on the rare occasion he was pissed off at someone or something. He always worked so hard at whatever project he was involved in. Nothing was too big or complicated for him. He was always first to lend a hand, not just to family but to neighbors and friends and possibly even complete strangers. I always loved his hearty and robust greeting….ha you doing? He will always have a very special place in our hearts and we will miss him very much.
