SEMERDJIAN, George Avedis


July 10, 2013 6:02 AM

George Avedis Semerdjian passed away July 8th 2013. Born on July 14th 1927 in Palestine Jordan. George moved to the United States in 1949 to attend school in Washington D.C. He enlisted in the US Army in 1951 and after his basic training he was deployed as a translator to Germany. During his time in the Army George made time to visit his family in Palestine and in Syria. After his tour of duty ended, he came back to the United States and moved to Los Angeles where his eldest brother lived. In Los Angeles George worked as Machinist/Tool maker for Lockheed Aircraft Company in Burbank. He was proud of his achievements and was honored to have worked on the L1011 wide body commercial jet project.

After retiring from Lockheed, George moved to New South Wales Australia to be with his sister and family. George loved Australia, also loved California and for the next 20 years he split his time between both. California was home to George; in the later part of his life he made Santa Barbara his home.

George passed away peacefully in the hospital early Monday morning July 8th 2013. He will be missed. A service will be held on Monday, July 15th at noon at the Santa Barbara Cemetery Chapel. Arrangements by Welch-Ryce-Haider Funeral Chapels. To leave an online memory or condolence, please visit www.wrhsb.com.
