George Biaggi

George James Biaggi passed away Dec. 4, 2012. He was 87.

A celebration of his life will be held at his home Sunday, Dec. 16, 2012, from 1-3 p.m.

He was born March 25, 1925, in San Jose, Calif. He was the youngest son of Fred and Myrtle Biaggi. George’s mother passed away when he was just a small toddler leaving him to be raised by his father.

He was often by his father’s side learning the family automotive repair business.

He enjoyed many outdoor activities but mostly motorcycle riding. As a young man, he was a member of the San Jose Don’s Motorcycle Club. He enlisted in the Army and proudly served his country in World War II.

After returning from war, he went to work at Stokley Van Camp in Santa Clara as a machinery mechanic supervisor where he worked until he retired. He moved to Grass Valley 31 years ago.

George was always happy to offer his automotive repair expertise help to anyone in need, asking little in return.

His wife, Betty, once said he would never get rich as a mechanic as he was always repairing someone’s car for the cost of parts only.

He is survived by his wife, Betty, with whom he celebrated 50 years of marriage this past October. He will also be missed by his daughter, Suzanne Pscion and his son, Daniel Jeter. His four grandchildren will miss his hugs and laughter, and his nine great-grandchildren will miss his wonderful, funny stories as well.

Arrangements are under the care of The Chapel of the Angels Mortuary.
