It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of George Stoesser at the age of 76. George was raised in Carmel, California by Eric and Mildred Stoesser. George became a competitive tennis player at an early age. He played tennis on scholarship for the University of Arizona where he was an All American and was a member of Delta Upsilon Fraternity. George played at many tournaments including California State Championships, Southampton, NY Invitational, National Tennis Championships at Forest Hills and the US Open. His love of the game was second to none and you could always find him on the Quail Valley Tennis Club courts in Missouri City, Texas on early mornings in the 70s and 80s.

George was an independent insurance agent in Houston for many years. He was very social, loved a good party and had an infectious laugh. He was a very caring, supportive and loving father who always put his family first. He loved all sports and co-founded the Quail Valley Soccer Association and he coached all three of his children in sports, never missing any of their games.

After surviving a brain aneurism at age 50, George's health began to decline, however his faith grew stronger and he was a steadfast volunteer at Holy Family Catholic Church in Missouri City as the head usher and member of the Knights of Columbus for many years. He began a life of charity works and helped many people, both friends and strangers, a true Good Samaritan, whether it was driving a veteran to the VA hospital or taking those without support into his home as adopted children.

George rose to life challenges with faith and positive attitude. We were blessed to have him for as long as we did. George loved and lived for his seven grandchildren who will miss Grampa George deeply.

He is predeceased by his wife, Ellen Stoesser (Lowery), who he was married to for 37 years and his parents, Eric and Mildred Stoesser. He is survived by his sons William Stoesser and Jeffery Stoesser; grandsons Eric Stoesser, Henry Stoesser and Thomas Stoesser; granddaughter Vivian Stoesser; daughter Melissa Stoesser Young (Graham); grandaughters Mia and Payton Young and grandson MacIntyre Young and his sister, Annette Stoesser, MD.
