August 16th, 2016
As some of you already know, on Monday morning George lost the long, heroic battle with cancer that he had been fighting over the past 5 years. In his last days, he was kept comfortable at a Hospice facility surrounded by family and friends. George was a husband, a brother, one hell of a father, a ‘sheepdog’ and a MARINE.
Everyone that knew George knew the amount of personality he carried with him everywhere he went and the adventurous spirit he had. ...We all have memories with George that were one of kind, and sometimes slightly ridiculous. George asked that he not be mourned, but rather that family and friends remember the amazing times they with him, and to always do what George would do, no matter how ridiculous that may be.
To honor his wishes, there will be no formal memorial service. Rather, he asked that his remains take one last ride offshore aboard his boat the GUPPY, where he will be laid to rest at sea, at his favorite fishing spot to spend the rest of his days.
To all of the family and friends that were able visit with him over the past few months, thank you! The support you showed meant the world to him, and the rest of the family.

Cynthia Jean Rexroth, age 63, died Sunday June 2, 2013 in Palm Harbor, Florida.

A devoted wife and mother, Cindy is survived by her husband of 30 years Fred, her son Jeff and wife Jessica, stepdaughters Amy and Paige, father Frank, and sister Pat.

Cindy spent 30 years in the Pinellas County School System as a music teacher, technology specialist, and librarian. She taught at Leila Davis Elementary and Lynch Elementary.

She was a proud member of the American Business Women's Association for 24 years, helping many Bay Area high school students earn college scholarships.

She will always be remembered as a woman who was always on the go, but took the time to make memories with her family and friends and a lasting impact on everyone who knew her.

She will be sorely missed.

2/12/1949 - 5/8/2010 Catherine Anna Richard, or Cathy as she liked to be called, was born Catherine Anna Schell on February 12, 1949 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Robert and Dorothy Schell. The family moved to Gulfport, Florida in 1955 and Cathy grew up with loving and dedicated parents. She attended Holt Cross School and worshiped at Holy Name Church. She graduated from Boca Ciega High School in 1967 and attended St. Petersburg Junior College. In 1969 she met the love of her life- Lynn Richard and they were married on March 20, 1971. Cathy left school to work for Allstate Insurance Company while Lynn finished college and that led to a 38 year career with Allstate where she quickly became known as a valuble and dedicated employee. Cathy and Lynn were both involved in many community activities and traveled widely throughout the United States, Canada, Central and South America and the Caribbean before Cathy gave birth to Robert, the "new' love of her life on November 30, 1984. She was dedicated to many school activities as well as community work as Robert grew up, eventually graduating from the University of Florida. He me his wife to be, and Cathy's newest love of her life- Heather Holtzman and they were married in 2007. Heather and Rob are expecting Cathy's most anticipated "love of her life" grandchild Lucas Allen, in September. She sadly helped bury her father, Robert a short time ago, but she also developed an even stronger bond with her mother who now helps bury her loving daughter. While Cathy left us early, she lived a full and happy life, and even while battling cancer in the last five years she was a loving and dedicated wife and mother She was a genuine friend and the people who met her or came to know her immediately knew she was someone special, someone who cared about them- someone who was willing to drop everything and help at any time. Her deepest regret in being called away early was that she will have to watch over her family and especially her grandson, from heaven. We will all miss her deeply.
