Obituary of George Joseph Reichman

With great sadness but also with deep and lasting gratitude for a long life well lived, we announce the passing of George Joseph Reichman of Essex, Connecticut, on November 15, 2021. Born in Jamaica, New York on April 9, 1942, his family moved to Connecticut in 1950 and eventually settled in Essex, CT. George graduated from the Essex High School and started a career in Security which eventually evolved into developing his own discrete service firm catering to the specialized needs of his clients both in Residential and Commercial applications. He dealt with and performed and/or arranged/coordinated a diverse gamut of responding to his clients needs in a host of applications, including but not limited to property maintenance, home health care, grounds upkeep, security, house sitting, project supervision, chauffeuring and catering to events and parties, as well as responding to his clients specialized and unique needs. He developed an excellent reputation of confidentiality and personalized care that was a hallmark in the industry. He had many loyal clients that stayed with him for over 25 years. Usually, the only reason that he lost a client was due to retirement and moving out of state or passing away. George was devoted Catholic and a member of Our Lady of Sorrow Church in Essex. George became a member of the Local Essex Knights of Columbus Council in May of 2002. This eventually evolved into him being invited and joined the Elite K of C Color Corp of which he was an active participant. George took to heart the Knights of Columbus four principle standards of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. He lived his life accordingly and was a beloved member of the order. His participation in the various K of C events over the years and the great Comradeship that he had with his fellow members brought him great Joy and Fulfillment. Over the years George was the recipient of multiple awards, citations and certificates of appreciation for his devoted service. He was always ready with a cheerful smile to participate in the needs of the order. His passing leaves a sorrowful hole in the hearts and minds of his fellow members. He is survived by Ethel Maynard, his sister who had three children of her own, a daughter Monica and two sons Tom and Jeff Evans. Monica is married to Richard Schenk and they have a daughter Emily (George’s Grandniece) who recently married Adam Heath.
