George is preceded in death by his parents, David and Millie (Abbott) Esper, his brothers Charles and Richard, as well as his sisters Frances and Freda Franciosi. George has four surviving sisters: Catherine Moseley, Alice Kelley and Florence Esper, all of Norwood, as well as Marion “Dolly” Corcoran of Walpole.
