George Andrew Mosher passed away suddenly at home from heart disease Sept. 28. He was 52.

He was well known in the construction trades in the San Diego area and in Ocean Beach, where he lived the past 12 years. George was born on May 25, 1960 in Methuen, Mass., the son of Paul and the late Wanda Mosher, moving to New Jersey in 1962 and then to Naperville, Ill. in 1968. In Naperville, Mosher spent his formative years and starred in youth hockey and on Naperville North High School’s first hockey team, which was then a club sport.

After high school, he went into the construction trades, first in Naperville and then in Florida, where he became proficient in cement finishing and block and brick masonry. He came to San Diego in 1983 and continued his career in construction, obtaining his general contractor’s license in 1993.

In 1996, George went to Cabo San Lucas and, backed by his parents, built two houses in the gated residential community of Santa Carmela, learning Spanish and acquiring an entirely new set of friends and business relationships. His big pleasures living in Cabo San Lucas were the opportunity to fish for dorado, tuna, wahoo and billed gamefish, attending concerts at Cabo Wabo and simply hanging out with his many friends at Latitude 22.

After selling both houses in Mexico, he returned to San Diego, settled in Ocean Beach in 2000, built a spec house in Del Mar on a lot with very difficult topography and sold it in 2002. From 2003 on, he concentrated on improving his family’s property in Ocean Beach and acquiring and managing a multi-unit rental property.

He never lost his love for the Los Cabos area and made an annual trip every October to renew his friendships, attend concerts and fish for gamefish.

George was well known in the Ocean Beach community, with numerous friends throughout San Diego, Naperville and the Los Cabos area in Baja California. He was generous to a fault, with his door always open to the many friends and acquaintances traveling through San Diego, especially those coming from or going to the Los Cabos area.

He was an avid poker player, fisherman and ice hockey fan, especially the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins.

George is survived by his father, Paul; brothers Michael and Peter; sister Kathryn Parsons; brother-in-law Douglas Parsons; nephews Mark, Joseph and William Parsons; and numerous uncles, aunts and cousins throughout the U.S.

His mother, Wanda, predeceased him in 2009 after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Services for George were held Oct. 6 at El Camino Memorial.
