It is my sad duty to inform you of the passing of George Giummarra.
George’s health battle with a brain tumour for which he underwent surgery in February 2021 and ongoing treatment but despite the wonderful care provided regretfully George succumbed to the disease on 3rd November 2021 and passed with his loving family by his side.
In 1970 George was part of the National Service intake and then remained in the Defence Force within the Reserve – some of the Units George served with were
7 FER (1971-1983), 3 TRG GP (1984-1988), 22 Construction Regiment/6 ENGR GP (1989-1995). George was discharged in December 1995 with the rank of LTCOL – he held the Command Appointment as Commanding Officer of 22nd Construction Regiment 1989 – 1992.
He was awarded the RFD and also is a recipient of the prestigious Blamey Award.
George is survived by his wife Sue and children Cindie and Victoria and our thoughts and condolences are extended to them and all family members at this very difficult and sad time.
Funeral arrangements are to be finalised and will be advised as per the family notices.
