George Principe passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday, May 1, 2021, surrounded by his family. He met the love of his life, Sarah Garris in June of 1958, just four days after he returned from deployment in the Korean Conflict. George served in the U.S. Army as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division. He married Sarah on January 28, 1961. They celebrated their 60th year of marriage this year.

George was a Master Plumber and started his business in 1970. He was a tireless worker who served the Kenosha area for 46 years. Above all, George was a consummate professional who took great pride in his work. He touched the lives of many people through his work and befriended many coworkers and customers through the years.

He is survived by his wife, Sarah; son, Paul (Jenniffer) Principe of Pleasant Prairie, WI and daughter Ruth (Randy) Oberst of Florida; and siblings, Jon Principe, Cheryl (Jim) Gemignani and Roberta Principe of Palm Desert, CA.

A memorial service will be held for George at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 27, 2021, at Casa Capri, 2129 Birch Road, Kenosha, WI. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, in George’s memory at

My deepest condolences to the family of George.
Over the years my family had many opportunities to work with George and to say that he was a Master Plumber doesn't even cover all of his skills completely. George provided us with "in the field" reviews of our products that always included constructive ideas for improvements. We highly respected his input and professionalism.
George will be deeply missed by everyone he came in contact with during his long career.
God bless you all and I am sure that God already has him working on some "projects".
Sincerely, John Frost Jr. and the rest of the Frost family

John, you have no idea how much this post means to me. He loved his work so much. It's all he ever wanted to do. I never knew about the field reviews but I am certain he is smiling upon you right now. Thank you so much.

Thank you John. He will be missed but we have so many great memories. The last year was a difficult one. I am relieved that he is at peace.
