George Jontilla Cano SR
Feb 2, 1927 – Dec 14, 2018
George J. Cano passed away peacefully in his sleep on December 14th, 2018 in Seattle, WA at the age of 91. George was born and raised in Stockton, CA. He established his family and career roots in the Seattle area back in the 1950s. He was the 2nd eldest amongst 10 children and is preceded in death by his parents Nicomedes and Faustina Cano, wife Juanita and several siblings (Terry, Linda, and Caroline).
Our Father found the love of his life riding on a float during the Seafair torchlight parade, married Juanita DeOcampo and spent 50+ wonderful years of marriage until our Mothers passing in 2005.
Dad served in the US Army during WWI worked for McDonnell Douglas Aircraft and entered a long career at The Boeing Company and retired in 1986 after 30+ years of service.
When not working at Boeing Dad also moonlighted at the Seattle Kingdome for 15+ years in the private suites area in Security. Many people will remember his strong smile, charming personality along with his “gift of gab”. He was definitely someone to know if you needed event tickets, a good meal or a cold beer. Dad and Mom were a big part of the Kingdome family back in the days.
Dad is survived by siblings Phyllis Ente, Connie Estante, Laura Tenio, Anita Perez, Dan Cano, and Nick Cano. Surviving children include Terri (Ciraldo) Rodriguez, George Jr. (Charlene), Lorri Porcincula and David Cano. Grandkids Issac, Rachel, Chayna, Elena, Alexander, Tia, Jordan, Shelley, Marina and Cookie. Great Grandkids Leilah, Kaila, Mia.
