December 18, 1929 - March 2, 2018
Born in Beirut, Lebanon
Resided in St. Clair Shores, Michigan
On November 27, 1955 he married Catherine Haddad at Our Lady of Redemption Church in Detroit. They enjoyed 55 years of marriage until Catherine’s death in 2010.
George was very hard working. He retired from Hudson’s as the warehouse dock foreman in the 1990s. Mr. Aziz was an exceptional gardener. His garden and pear trees were always fruitful. He would engage neighbors and friends in conversation as they would pass by his house. He enjoyed showing his grandchildren and nieces and nephews some of his gardening secrets and loved sharing stories with them. He enjoyed spending time at the family cottage in Harrison, where he would relax and watch nature and wildlife right outside the cottage windows. The bountiful deer population up north was a natural fit for George’s enjoyment of nature. His biggest joy in life was his family.
He was proud of his sons Philip, Ed (Sharon), and Rodney (Dawn); and adored his grandchildren Andrew, Natalie, Emily, and Ethan. He leaves behind his siblings Eveline Trabulsy (the late George), Norma Salloum (the late Philip), Georgette Craig (Jim), Sue Zangoulas (Nick), and the late Jeanette Bate (Michael); and his brothers and sisters-in law Elizabeth Ghaffari (Tony), Jeanette Rahi (Daher), and the late Edward Haddad, Sam Haddad (Peggy), Louis Haddad (Geri), Monsignor John W. Haddad and Michael Haddad (Marie). George will be missed by his many loving nieces and nephews.
