We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at House of Law, Inc.
George Pender was born to Joshua and Nettie Pender on January 23, 1951, in Braddock, PA. He was a son, brother, father, uncle, grandfather, and friend to many. After graduating from Braddock High School, George briefly enrolled at Fisk University before leaving to enter the Military. He served in the United States Army before enrolling as an Air Force reservist. Along with his military service, he worked numerous jobs including the United States Postal Service and Education Management Corporation, where he retired. If you know George, you know that he was an entrepreneur owning his own cleaning company and was a carpenter, doing woodwork and glasswork. Even in retirement, he continued to work, most recently at Amazon.
Having the heart to give and help others, Toys for Tots and Feed the Children were important causes to George and he regularly donated, even when he didn’t have much to give.
George was a father to Yvette Royal, Yvonne McKinnon, and Josh Pender. He was one of seven children, preceded in death by his brother Joshua Pender Jr. and parents Joshua Sr. and Nettie Pender.
George is survived by his five sisters, Carolyn Ramsey, Mable Pender, Velouise Bell, Cynthia Pennywell, and Jewel Harris. Three grandchildren, Gerald Pender, Emmanuel Davis, and Brooklynn McKinnon, and a host of family and friends.
There will be a Memorial Service for the family Saturday, June 25 at 3:00 pm at House of Law Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, in memoriam donations can be made to your favorite charity.
