In Memory of

George P. Kriss

February 2, 1951 - December 13, 2017


George P. Kriss, 66, of New Milford passed away on December 13, 2017.

He is survived by his loving family, his “BRIDE” of 45 years Loraine (nee Braunstetter), daughters Genevieve and husband Eddy Stelter, Melissa and husband Charlie Schaadt. “Pappy” is survived by his adoring grandchildren: Zachary and Jacqueline Stelter, Olivia, Madison and Jake Schaadt. Also survived by sisters Andrea and husband Bob Vibbert and Bernadine Kavanaugh. He is also survived by many nephews and nieces.

George worked for the Port Authority of NY & NJ as a mechanic at Newark Liberty Airport for 38 years. George also served his country for the United States Navy: on the USS Simon-Lake and finished off his 20 year Navy career as a reservist in the Cargo Handling Battalion.

George had a love affair of old cars, his “HOT ROD ’69 Chevy Nova”, turtles, Snoopy, collection of trains, model cars and trucks. Loved his classic rock bands, The Who, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top. He also enjoyed watching old movies mostly Westerns especially John Wayne films. His favorite actor was Steve McQueen in the movie The Great Escape. Pappy was often found tinkering around with his cars, down in the shop often making his own inventions to fix things or making things.

George affectionately loved his “bride”, children and grandchildren. George enjoyed spending time with his family by going to Wildwood every summer and boogie boarding with his 5 grandchildren. In George’s leisure time he would enjoy reading fictional and historical fiction books. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him and loved him. His love for us will live on in each one of us.
