Obituary

George Leedom Mason, III, 88, of Simsbury, CT passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Sunday, July 4, 2021. He was born July 22, 1932 in Philadelphia, PA, son of the late George L. Mason, Jr. and Marie (Drybala) Mason and had lived in Westwood, MA prior to moving to Simsbury 35 years ago. He graduated from La Salle University, Class of 1953, with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and was a veteran of the U.S. Army (1955-1957). George was a competitive swimmer during his high school, college and military service years. He spent his entire career in the life insurance industry, earning his CLU in 1970. His strong work ethic left a mark at Continental American, Fidelity Mutual Insurance Co. and The New England. He joined LIMRA in Farmington, CT, in 1986 and happily retired the summer of 1997 as Senior Director of the Marketing Consultation Group. George was an active member of St. Catherine of Siena Church in West Simsbury, CT, where he served as a lector and as a member of the Men’s Club for many years. His clam chowder was always a hit at the annual “Soup and Bread” night! George loved spending time with his family, was an avid reader, liked to garden, enjoyed golf and playing bridge with friends. He thoroughly enjoyed traveling, which he did professionally throughout his career. However, his true joy came from traveling with his wife. During their decades together, they visited 39 states and 30 countries!

George was the devoted husband of Lois K. (Fleischmann) Mason, spending 55 years together until her passing in 2017. George is survived by his children, George L. Mason, IV, and his wife Crystian of Moscow, ID; Margaret “Peggy” M. Santhouse and her husband Timothy of Wethersfield, CT; John J. Mason of Simsbury, CT; and Diana E. DiTunno and her husband Joseph of Southington, CT; his brother, Richard Mason and his wife Ann Marie of Naples, FL. “PopPop” to his grandchildren Sarah, Cassie, Tyler, Luke, Alana, Matthew and Natalie, and his great grandson, Landon.

Calling hours will be held on Thursday, August 5 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Vincent Funeral Home, 880 Hopmeadow Street in Simsbury, CT. Funeral Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 AM on Friday, August 6, at St. Catherine of Siena Church, 265 Stratton Brook Road in West Simsbury, CT. Inurnment with military honors will follow in the Sycamore Mausoleum at the Simsbury Cemetery.

I lived next to George for almost seven years. He welcomed me when I moved next door with complete kindness and respect. While I do wish I spent more time over the years talking with him, his personal qualities that have been mentioned here already will stay with me ones to aspire to. My condolences to his family.

My deepest sympathies to the Mason family. I knew George as a colleague at LIMRA, and enjoyed his humor, friendly personality and smile. May he rest in peace.

George was a co-worker at LIMRA, during his entire career there. He was a hard working, intelligent, articulate, gentleman. All the while with a wonderful sense of humor! The adage…”he worked hard and he played hard” is applicable. He had excellent business relationships with his group insurance member organizations and committees.

George was fun to be with and work with. We played many rounds of golf together at the local Simsbury Farms golf course. No course records were ever in danger.

A wonderful gentleman, who will indeed be
missed. Our condolences to each and every family member.
