In loving memory of George J. Tahu Jr. who passed away on January 6, 2022, at the age of 85. George is survived by his wife, Betsy, and his son, George III, his daughter, Tiffany, as well as “young” George’s family—wife Molly, and their two sons, Jackson and Benjamin. George was born in Dallas, Texas, to Helen and George Tahu, who predeceased him. His sibling, Jim Tahu, predeceased him and is survived by one daughter, Kristina. He is survived by his other sibling, Jerry Tahu and his wife Janie and daughter Carrie.

George graduated from Highland Park High School and spent eight years serving in the U.S. Navy Air Reserves. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. He married Betsy and shortly after their marriage, they moved to Richardson, Texas, where they built the house that has been their home ever since.

George worked for Hewlett Packard/Agilent for 42 years, providing test and measurement system solutions for his customers. He is a life member of IEEE and was the recipient of the Third Millennium Medal. He was very involved with his son’s life by serving as a scout leader for the Boy Scouts, soccer coach, and proud promoter of NASA missions to Mars (by wearing shirts given to him by his son). He was also right beside his daughter, ready with video camera in hand, for ice skating competitions, high school drill team performances, and a constant support throughout her careers in advertising and education. Another source of satisfaction came from being a long-time member of Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church where he served as an elder and on various committees in service to the congregation.  George found great happiness in helping others.  He is already greatly missed.
