Obituary for George J Mobille

George J. Mobille
August 21, 1925 - July 20, 2019
Pine Island, N.Y.
Formerly of Westtown, NY
George Mobille of Pine Island N.Y., formerly of
Westtown N.Y., died peacefully at home on July 20, 2019. He was 93.
George was born in the port city of Piraeus, Greece on August 21,
1925, and spent happy years growing up on the Greek Island of Salamis
with his mother, brother, cousins and grandmother. He and his family were
caught up in the hardships of the Depression of the 30's and the
invasion of Greece by the Germans in WW II. After the war, he and
his mother and brother took the opportunity to leave for a new life in
the U.S. They settled in the city of Chicago, where George studied at
the University of Chicago, obtaining a degree in engineering,
specializing in statistics. He worked for many companies, including Ryan
Aeronautical in San Diego, Ca., American Bosch Co. of Long Island, N.Y.
and IBM in Fishkill, N.Y.
At an early age, George was drawn to and puzzled by the idea of
Infinity. " How can there be anything with no beginning and no end?"
he wondered. It led him to a life long study of science, mathematics
and religion. He was a long - time member of the Institute for
Religious Development ( Chardavogne Barn group ) in Warwick, N.Y.
He was predeceased by his brother Tom, and leaves behind his beloved
cousin in Greece, Nassos Manolias, two beloved nieces, Tina
Manolias and Nana Manolias, many other relatives in Greece, and good
friends here and across the country.
George wished no public memorial, just the remembrance that exists in
the heart.
Arrangements for the cremation were handled by Applebee-McPhillips
Funeral Home, Middletown, N.Y. Online condolences may be offered at www.applebee-mcphillips.com
