Obituary


November 24, 1943 to September 24, 2016
We all lost a very special person on September 24th when George passed away.
George was an incredibly giving person. He was always there to help family
and friends. He was generous with his time, thoughtful and caring,
humble and patient, and meticulous in doing things right.
George took great pride in his motorcycles, maintaining and customizing
each of them to suit his style. His greatest joys included his weekend rides
around the state. The pinnacle of his Harley trips was being able to attend
the Sturgis Rally...

November 24, 1943 to September 24, 2016
We all lost a very special person on September 24th when George passed away.
George was an incredibly giving person. He was always there to help family
and friends. He was generous with his time, thoughtful and caring,
humble and patient, and meticulous in doing things right.
George took great pride in his motorcycles, maintaining and customizing
each of them to suit his style. His greatest joys included his weekend rides
around the state. The pinnacle of his Harley trips was being able to attend
the Sturgis Rally in South Dakota with his sister and his niece.
While many would consider George to be a modest man, he appreciated
many of the finer things in life. He enjoyed travelling, fine dining, great wines
and craft beers. He was comfortable in any setting, but being outdoors grilling
with family and friends, brought him the most enjoyment.
George worked in Facilities Management, maintaining the mechanical and
electrical systems in large buildings. He took satisfaction in ensuring the comfort
and safety of those working in the buildings he was responsible for.
His talents provided a good living for himself and his family.
George was born in Alexandria, Virginia and moved to Arizona in 1975.
He was preceded in death by his father - George T. Lattin Jr, his mother -
Christine Aldrich Lattin and his sister - Janet Rixey Raines. He is survived by his son -
George (Buddy) Lattin IV, his daughter - Bonnie (Kyra) Lattin, Six grandchildren -
Miranda, Zachary, Madyson, Mikaila, Montanna and George V,
one great granddaughter - Kylee and two nieces - Christine and Marie.
George suffered from Dementia with Lewy Bodies and although the illness took
him from us way too soon, the George we will remember in our hearts, is the smiling,
doting grandpa, the caring father, and the greatest of friends. The celebration of
George's life will be at 1:00 p.m. on October 15th, at
Phoenix Memorial Park & Mortuary, 200 W Beardsley Rd; Phoenix, AZ. 85027.
Due to the special bond that George had with his great granddaughter,
we are asking that in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (www.CFF.Org) in honor of his name
