Obituary for George J. Vendura, Sr.
George J. Vendura, Sr., a longtime area resident died Thursday, February 9, 2006 at Bayonette Point Hospital in New Port Richey, FL. He was 84 years old.

The son of the late John and Antoinette Alfano Ventura, George was born October 5, 1921 in Bronx, NY.

He had the gift of storytelling that could keep children and adults awed and entertained. Known as the pepper king, he spent time gardening, perfecting chili peppers. The hotter, the better. He’ll be missed by all of us, including China, his faithful pet.”
