Loss For Words | My Dear Father | George Hrisco |

4/14/1935 - 10/31/2011

I’m at a complete loss for words right now, My Father George Hrisco passed away unexpectedly on Monday 31 October 2011.  I ask that you keep our family in your prayers.  For those that have asked here is the information regarding his services.

George Hrisco

(FYI, that is a 40 year Placque for his work at Bell Helicopter Textron, he received several years ago, he actually worked there 48 1/2 years, was going for 50).  I only hope I can give half the dedication that my Father did in his career.

Visitation: to be held this coming Sunday 6 November 2011 at Lucas Funeral Home located at 1321 Precinct Line Road Hurst, TX 76053 from 18:00-20:00 (6-8 p.m.)

Funeral Services: to held this coming Monday 7 November 2011 at Lucas Funeral Home in the Chapel at 11:30 a.m.

Interment Services: to follow at 13:30 p.m. (1:30 p.m.) at Dallas / Fort Worth National Cemetery.

Because this is Breast Cancer Awareness season, and we lost our Mother; Mary Hrisco in 2005, and I know my Father supported her in her fight, we ask that you consider making a donation to my Agent for the Cure program (in lieu of flowers) in their memory along with your information as well.  (FYI, my wife and I just got done volunteering over 71 hrs in October in our support of Race for the Cure, so the current total should change drastically soon).

Oh John,

I am so very sorry for the loss of your Father.  Losing a parent is difficult, but when it is totally unexpected, it is devastating.  Please know that if you need me to do anything for your business, that I am just a phone call away.  May God grant you peace beyond our understanding in this difficult time, and in the days to come.  Take care my friend.

John, this is a blog post that I dont like to read.  There has been so much sadness of late that is has really caused me to reflect on what a gift life is that we enjoy.  I know you are grieving and hope you will receive some comfort from your AR pals who care and understand your loss.    I am sure your Father was just as proud of you as you shared here in your post of his accomplishments.  Take care and don't worry about us we will still be here on the Rain when you are ready to get back in the swing of a schedule.  You will be in my prayers

John:  I am so sorry for the loss of your Father.  It sounds like he lived a full life, and it it obvious he had a gem of a son in you.  My Dad passed away at the age of 69 in 1988... and I miss him dearly.

Take care... gentle huggs...
