George E. Moring entered eternal life on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at home in Wildomar, California.
George was the oldest of 5 children to parents George William and Daisy Liberty Angeline Moring. Born in Wichita, Kansas, his family came to California when he was young and was raised in Compton where he graduated from Enterprise High School. He met the love of his life, Sylvia Kreider, through her older brother Jim, one of his close friends at the time. They fell in love, married, and together had 2 sons, George (Bill) and Jim. They raised their sons in Garden Grove where both graduated from Santiago High School. Professionally, George worked as a Harbor Mechanic at the San Pedro docks for 25 years before retiring. He and Sylvia moved to Riverside County together 25 years ago. Sylvia passed in October 2008 and George has stayed in Wildomar since.
George was a family man that looked forward to family gatherings and get-togethers. He adored his family; and them in return, especially his grandchildren. George was a great musician that played guitar his whole life. He could play Johnny B. Goode holding his guitar up over his head. His band played all the parties (nightclubs, weddings, Barmitzvahs) every Saturday and Sunday night. They were the house band for the Queen Mary Club in Long Beach for many years. George appreciated all good music, regardless of genre. George was also a car buff and a Chevy man through and through. He always had a Chevy pickup or car and he also rode motorcycles in his younger years. His family recalls his prized ’56 Chevy truck and George kept his wife Sylvia’s beloved ’86 Iroc Z28 in garage kept mint condition. In recent years, he made it to the daily Board Members Meeting every day at the Coffee Shop. He liked to watch ‘Cops’ Jerry Springer, Maury and was always up on the news.
George was preceded in death by his wife Sylvia; his brother Gary and his sister Nellie at a very young age. He is survived by his sons George (Kim) and Jim Moring; brother William and sister Joan; 8 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren with 2 more on the way, fellow members of the Coffee Shop Board, and a host of other relatives and friends.
