George R. LeSauvage, Jr., 1 Willow Drive, Port Washington, died suddenly on Monday, Nov. 5. He was 84.
George had a career in the restaurant and food business. He was very enthusiastic about Port Washington, was one of the pillars of St. Stephen's Church, and a long time booster for the Historical Society and Friends of the Library.
A one time president of the Manhasset Bay Estates Association, George was continuously involved in the activities of the MBEA, including an active role in creating Merriman Park. He wanted to call it "Merriman Green."
George knew just about everyone in town on a first name basis. He enjoyed life, and went to see many shows in New York, including Forth-Second Street.
He was an enthusiastic fisherman and sailor. In the '60s he helped create the Jigger class, a 9-1/2-foot fiberglass dinghy, building 56 boats.
George is survived by his wife Faith, sons John and David, daughters Rollie and Mary and five grandchildren. George's enthusiasm for life in Port Washington was infectious and thus continues in the community.
