George Robert Leishman passed away peacefully on March 28, 2019, at Angel Haven in San Mateo. He was a Bay Area native, born and raised in San Francisco before eventually settling in San Mateo for 60 years.
George was a compassionate, hard working man who would do anything for his family, friends, and just about anyone he knew. He enjoyed sports, traveling, playing Bridge, dancing, and could almost always be found watching a Western movie or reading a good book in the late afternoon. His drive and dedication to keep moving forward stayed with him until the very end, and he will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
George is preceded in death by his father, Jack, his mother, Edna, his brother, Jack, and his wife, Phyllis. He is survived by his daughter, Ann, his son, George Jr. (Janet), his daughter, Kathleen, his daughter, Sharon (Greg), his sister, Virginia (Robert), his grandchildren, Sarah, Kristin, Stephanie, Kelly, Leah, Amy, Kurt and Matthew and their spouses, his ten great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank Mission Hospice medical providers and staff and the care providers at Angel Haven of San Mateo for their excellent care.
Services for George Robert Leishman will be held at 11:00am at Skylawn Memorial Park in San Mateo on April 20, 2019. Reception to follow at the San Mateo Elks Lodge. In lieu of flowers, friends and family may donate to Mission Hospice.
