Obituary for George John Jicha

May 6, 1925 - March 19, 2021
Cleveland, Ohio | Age 95

Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather


George John Jicha, Sr., age 95, died peacefully at home on Friday, March 19, 2021. Beloved husband of the late Mildred (Sasura), father of Debora Binkley (Philip) of Westerville, OH, COL George J., Jr. (Janie), of Goodyear, AZ, Paula Domzalski (Hank) of Sagamore Hills, Judy Jean Lewis (David) of Brooklyn, grandfather of ten, great-grandfather of eleven, brother of the late Emily Robinson, Charles, Anton, and James.

George was a proud American, a World War II veteran who served in the U.S. Navy, and a patriot who flew the flag each day. He worked for Sherwin Williams, General Motors at the Cadillac Tank Plant, and founded Jay Office Supply.

Each holiday season, George loved being Santa for thousands of children and adults alike. He was creative and inventive - writing stories, painting, and woodworking. George loved traveling with his children and grandchildren, exploring places both near and far.

George joined Kiwanis in his 70s, and his fellow members became close and lasting friends. He was committed to helping his community through Kiwanis with service as President, Lieutenant Governor, and District Administrator for K-Kids.
