George Harold DeCou Jr. of Stamford, CT, passed away in Creve Coeur, MO. Wednesday, July 13, 2022, at the age of 90. Loving husband of the late Shirley DeCou; cherished son of the late Leona DeCou and George Harold DeCou, Sr. Devoted father of Linda Betsill-Cox, Lawrence (Marguerite) Betsill, Denise DeCou, Debra DeCou-Winston, and Derek DeCou; loving grandfather of Lukia, Noelle, Jennifer, Jeffery, Chris, Arianne, Jai, Jasmine, Carrie, and George; treasured great-grandfather of 14; uncle of Lynette, the late Cheryl, Donna, and Wendy, Charlotte; god daughters, Kimberly, Carolyn, and Ayana; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

 

George was very interested in keeping up with the news and the stock market. He read The Wall Street Journal every day and knew about all that was going on in the world. George loved to play golf and loved to cruise travel. He loved to go to the beach and being in the water. George also enjoyed a good road trip. He bought a special vehicle in order to travel with his grandchildren and took his kids and grandkids all over the United States.

 

George loved to listen to music, especially jazz and he loved his honey roasted peanuts. He didn’t know he loved dogs until he got his dog, a black lab named Sport. More than anything, he loved his family and always enjoyed spending time with them.

 

George was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

 

Memorials may be made in George's name to The United Negro College Fund.
