obit: George Arthur Lasky
Lasky, George Arthur
George Arthur Lasky, age 72, passed away on Monday, November 26, 2012, at his home in Dallas. George was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas, to Albert J. and Hannah Geschmay Lasky.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Jack Lasky.
George is survived by his loving wife, Charlotte; son, Andrew H. Lasky; and stepsons, Bryan Cytron and Jason Glater.
George graduated from Hot Springs High School in 1958, and the University of Oklahoma in 1963. He was a founding father of the OU Chapter of the Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity. Following graduation, he became a certified public accountant and was the managing director of Lasky Hawbaker & Company from 1965 until 2007. In addition to being a founding member of Accounting Group International and Temple Shalom, he served as a board member for numerous charitable organizations. Despite being an avid reader, George truly enjoyed interacting with people, making new friends wherever he went. Whether it was having lunch with a local friend in Dallas, visiting old classmates in his hometown, or traveling across the country (or world) to see someone he had not seen for decades, he treasured spending time with his many longtime friends. His passion for traveling and taking cruises to distant places was matched only by his affection for his pets, all of whom he considered family members. In death, George is now reunited with his lost loved ones, including his four dogs-Charlie, Amos, Bubba and Boomer-and his childhood pet goat, Michael.
A memorial service will be held in Linz Hall at Temple Emanu-El of Dallas on Sunday, December 2, at 3:15 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Congregation House of Israel, Hot Springs, Arkansas.
