It is with unmeasurable sadness that our most selfless and precious George passed away on Wednesday 8th February at the age of a young 45.
George was suffering from depression and unfortunately felt he could not go on and took his own life.
Our loss cannot be put into words or measured. For anyone that knew him either through the world of magic, school, friends and family, George was simply the kindest, selfless and funny man and would do anything for anyone whether he knew them or not.
George was a fantastic husband, father, son, brother, uncle, godfather, friend and of course magician.
George was happiest doing what he loved….performing magic to people of all ages. He used to get such a thrill making adults and children gasp with his party or close up tricks. It also goes without saying that he loved spending time with his family and friends and he was a constant joker.
We don’t think we will ever believe or accept that he won’t be back and we are heartbroken beyond belief.
We are still in the process of arranging the funeral but will post details for those that wish to attend.
RIP my magicman…..love you until the end of time xxx
Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this difficult time. Here at Magic Daily, we held a special place in our hearts for George, who never had a bad word for anyone.
The magic world has lost one of it’s true gentlemen’s. Rest in Peace our friend.
