George Emery Mace

On January 21, 2004, George Emery Mace, 75, of West Richland, Washington, entered into rest, in Richland, WA. having been surrounded by loved ones. George was born April 15, 1928 in Los Angeles, California, to Emery Mace and Della Campuzano. He served in the WW II Merchant Marines and the Army Air Corp. He traveled many, many miles as a long-line truck driver. On January 19, 1975, George married the joy of his life, Carol. They were married in Las Vegas, Nevada. They resided in Southern California, Fallon, Nevada, Kirkland, Washington and moved to West Richland in 1988. They owned and operated Webster Hobby Shop in Seattle for many years before moving to West Richland. During the time here, they owned Ruppert Ranch Collectibles, until retirement several years ago. George was known for his beautiful gardens, which he tended to so carefully and lovingly. He enjoyed the outdoors and spent many wonderful times with Carol in their motor home, camping and fishing. Trips to Reno and Jackpot were always great fun. He was also known for “house-hopping”, as moves from home to home were frequent. The challenge of a new home project always intrigued him. Each home he left was a more beautiful place due to his care. George was one of a kind. He possessed a loving and generous spirit and was always eager to lend a helping hand. Wife Carol of West Richland survives him. He is also survived by daughter Nina Richard Sandoval, Bellflower, CA., grandchildren Stacy Martha Thompson and Tracey Jeff Burke; daughter Kathy Ralph Ammendolia of West Richland, grandchildren Melissa Michael Miller and Kelly Ammendolia; son Mike Gail Sullivan, Grand Forks, ND. Preceding him in death were mother, Della, son George Jr., daughter Christine, and sister and brother-in-law, Ruby and Preston Garst. “To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die”. He will forever live in the hearts of all those who knew and loved him. We will miss him but are thankful for his presence in our lives. A memorial service is planned for 11:00am, Monday, January 26, 2004 at Einan’s Funeral Home, 915 By-Pass Highway, Richland, WA. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Tri-Cities Cancer Center, 7350 W. Deschutes, Kennewick, WA. 99336.

  • Grandpa and Carol lived many miles away but were always close to our hearts. He loved life and lived it to the fullest, doing more than many people could ever dream of. Knowing that is comforting. We will miss Grandpa very much, though he will always be alive in our memories. To all of his friends and family we have not met, our thoughts are with you.
