George Wainwright Grover, III

November 19, 1949 - June 27, 2019

George Wainwright Grover, III, age 69, of New Port Richey, passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of June 27th, 2019. George was born November 19, 1949, to George Wainwright Grover, Jr. and Hazel Jones in Bay Shore, NY. He moved to the area in 1975 from Babylon, NY. In 1977, he married the love of his life, Karen. George worked as a banker for Barnett Bank, then Republic, and retired from BB&T. He was a parishioner of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church.

George was a caring and strong-willed man. He worked hard and was a great provider to his family. He loved tending his garden and cultivating his lawn. He also enjoyed listening to Simon and Garfunkel and watching the History channel. He had a passion for genealogy and had become the librarian of his family’s history – a charter he’s passed on to his eldest son. His caring spirit was evident in his devotion to his family, as well as in his love for animals.

George has been preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Bill Pywar. He is survived by his beloved wife and companion of nearly 50 years, Karen; sons, Matthew (Erin) and Ryan (Erin); daughter, Lindsey (Andrew) Green; brother, E. Richard Pywar; sister, Jane Phetterplace; and five grandchildren with one more on the way.

A memorial mass will be celebrated at St. Thomas Aquinas on Friday, July 5th at 11am.

Arrangements are entrusted to Michels & Lundquist Funeral Home.

What our families say...

“I recently traveled to Florida to attend the funeral of a dear relative. It was not an easy trip to make, as I am disabled and travel with my faithful service dog, Whistler. The staff at Michels and Lundquist were so kind and thoughtful and welcomed Whistler and I into their establishment and made sure we were both comfortable. The service was wonderful, so personalized and dear Aunt Glenda looked so beautiful and peaceful.”
