George A. Kalil, 78, of Whitesboro, formerly of Westmoreland, passed away February 2, 2013, at St. Elizabeth Medical Center. He was born February 22, 1934 in Utica, the son of Ezhia and Selma Zogby Kalil. He was a graduate of Thomas R. Proctor High School, and received his B.S. degree from Utica College of Syracuse University. Mr. Kalil proudly served with the United States Marine Corps during the Korean Conflict. On October 14, 1961, he married Marie De Fazio, in Syracuse. George was a devoted husband, a loving father and a proud grandfather. From a very young age he was committed to his family and their care. After his father's passing, the "man of the house" took many jobs to provide for his family. He did whatever he needed to do to ensure that his family was taken care of. George continued this commitment when he had a family of his own. With his dedicated partner and love of his life, Marie, by his side, they did all they could to ensure that their children had every opportunity to succeed in life. He beamed with pride when he spoke of his son, his six daughters, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He was proud of his service to his Country and that he worked his way through college to earn his accounting degree. He then spent the next 50+ years continuing to positively impact people's lives. As a well-respected teacher at Utica School of Commerce and a meticulous tax preparer, he touched so many peoples lives. He was the man that couldn't go to a grocery store or a restaurant without running into a student that he inspired or a client that he helped work through a problem. These relationships began as students and clients, many ended as friends. Besides his loving wife Marie, he is survived by six daughters and three sons-in-law, Lisa and Michael DiGiuseppe, Lindenhurst, LI, Leslie Kalil, Syracuse, Camille and John Sorbello, Rome, Edith and Paul Kelly, East Greenbush, Georgine Kalil, Berlin, Germany, and Amy Kalil, Missoula, MT; his son and daughter-in-law, Edmund and Bertha Kalil, West Alexandria, OH; a sister, Adele Fadel, Sauquoit; grandchildren, Shaun, Shannon, Edyth, Joseph, Michael, Jackson, Eleanor, Lauren and Emma; great-grandchildren, Tyson, Tristan and Reagen; several nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by a sister and two brothers-in-law, Lila and Frank Manley, and Mitchel Fadel. Funeral services will be Wednesday, 10:30 a.m. from Dimbleby, Friedel, Williams & Edmunds Funeral Home, Forty Main St., Whitesboro, and 11:30 a.m. at St. Paul's Church, Whitesboro, where his Funeral Mass will be celebrated. Interment will be in Calvary Cemetery. Calling hours are Tuesday, from 4:00-7:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider memorials to the Whitesboro Fire Dept., 171 Oriskany Blvd., Whitesboro, NY 13492.
