George E. Gingras

January 10, 1951 — April 10, 2024

Mokena

George E. Gingras, age 73, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, April 10, 2024.

George is survived by his beloved wife Patricia (nee Covey) Gingras; children, Megan (Kevin) Munson and Daniel Gingras; grandchildren, Ellie Louise, Hallie Marie, and Benjamin George; his sister Peggy (Richard) Gudmundson; and his mother-in-law, Barbara Royalty.

He is preceded in death by his mother Florence Gingras and his sisters, Carol Gavigan and Diane Margita.

George loved John Wayne, chocolate, yellow corvettes, trains, camping, playing cards, Indycar and Disney World. He loved baking cookies, cakes and pies almost as much as he loved eating them. But most of all, George loved his family. We will miss him dearly!
