    b. June 8, 1943 d. January 2, 2017

    George Christopher Toregas departed this life on January 2, 2017 at the age of 73 following a valiant struggle against chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Born in NYC on June 8, 1943, and raised in Falls Church, Virginia, he was the son of the late Jalna Wenonah Mahota Wolf and Georges Dionysius Toregas.

    George grew up in Falls Church, VA and attended George Mason High School where he was a member of the baseball, football, and track teams. He was nicknamed “The Speedster” and was declared “the fastest man in Virginia”. The friends he made at GMHS remained a very important part of his life. George enlisted in the US Army and served in the Vietnam War. George was a lifelong patriot who loved the USA with all his heart. He was equally proud of his Chickasaw and Greek heritages.

    George earned a bachelor’s degree at UMUC and spent his professional life in communications, primarily at C&P Telephone Company, Lucent Technologies, and at the World Bank. He recently retired from his own communications consulting business, TelePliant. George lived in Pasadena, MD and loved golf, history, travel, and his friends.

    George lived much of his adult life in Pasadena, MD and loved golf, history, and travel, especially to Hawaii and Italy.  Mostly, George enjoyed getting to know people. He made many friends throughout his life and treasured every one of them. The absolute joy and purpose of his life was his family.

    George was predeceased by his parents, his sister Sarah Kirk and his daughter Lisa Toregas.  George is survived by his wife, Patricia, his brother Bill, his sisters Diane Toregas, Dio Toregas, Melanie Powell, and Thana Anderson, his sons, Michael Pfalzgraf and James Barrett, his daughters Sara Limon, Cathy Woodard, Lara Toregas, Susan Craig, Sandy Avery, and Sally Seastead. George treasured their spouses and his sisters and brothers-in-law, and their children and grandchildren.
