George Mordue

August 9, 1948 ~ June 23, 2021 (age 72)



George Mordue, 72, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday June 23, 2021 at UH Cleveland surrounded by family. He was born Aug. 9, 1948 in Cleveland, OH to the late Thomas and Florence (Fenn) Mordue. Our dad was a truly devoted husband to his loving and exceptional wife of 54 years, Dorothy (Guy) and an incredible father. He was an avid reader, which fed his love of learning, he enjoyed old radio shows. Growing up, he would play basketball with us and our friends in the driveway for hours on end. He set up lights to keep playing at night and snow would be cleared off to play in the winter. Whether he wanted to or not, he was the quintessential family handyman. When he wasn’t playing basketball, him and mom would be playing games of Scrabble all night long with a dictionary by his side checking  mom’s questionable words. He so loved our mom dearly. His favorite words to her were, “Babe, my coffee cup is empty”. Survivors include his wife Dorothy (Guy), sons Paul (Michelle) and Brian (Tina) Mordue, stepdaughter Tammy (Joe) Gellner, brother Tom (Donna) Mordue, sister Jayne Mordue, and grandchildren Brandon, Natasha (Billy) Urwin, Mason, Cameron,  Miranda Mordue and great-grandchildren Carter and James.
