Text size

George Andrew Moskevitz Sr. was born and raised in Peabody, Mass., by Paul and Anastasia (Sportune) Moskevitz. He was predeceased by six sisters, Anna Citrone, Olga Paradise, Francis Girgus, Jenny Hudon, Sarah McQueenie, Beatrice Mathews; and a brother, Paul Muscavitz.
George married his loving wife, Shirley (Marshall) Moskevitz, in 1957. They remained in Peabody where they raised their three children.
He is survived by his son, George A. Moskevitz Jr. and his wife, Deborah of Seabrook, N.H.; his daughter, Robin L. Bishop of Springfield, Mass.; and his son, Paul M. Moskevitz Sr. and his wife, Jane of Georgetown, Mass.
George attended Wentworth Institute of Technology where he received his Instructors Certification in Machine Shop and taught Adult Education at the Peabody Vocational High School. He worked as a Machinist for 30 years and retired in 1987 after 13 years as a Purchasing Agent from Varian Microwave of Beverly, Mass.
He and his wife were members of Calvary Baptist Church in Peabody until retirement and Limerick Free Baptist Church, where they enjoyed their summers in their second home that he built in 1962 on Pickerel Pond in Limerick, Maine. They enjoyed their winters in Fort Myers, Fla.
George was blessed with eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren who knew him as "Gido." His grandchildren will fondly remember the many summer weeks spent in Limerick, Maine, at “Camp Musky” where they enjoyed crafts, waterskiing and campfires.
George will be fondly and lovingly remembered by his many friends and family as a kind and caring man who was always eager to lend a hand or a word of encouragement and advice. Most of all, George will be remembered as someone who had a deep and abiding faith in his Lord.
