Our dad, papang, tatay, Eutiquio “George” Goron made it to be 93 years of age. George was of Elizabethton, Tennessee and passed away on Tuesday, October 26, 2021, at his residence. George was born in Leyte, Philippines on February 4, 1928 to the late Pedro and Prudencia Goron. In addition to his parents, George was preceded in death by his first wife, Gloria Advincula, and his second wife, Teresita “Tita” Matocino Goron.
George retired as a manager of the Officer’s Club, United States Naval Base on Subic Bay in the Philippines. He was a Filipino Scout for the Filipino Army during World War II and was of the Catholic faith. George loved gardening, especially the Filipino vegetables, going to the Cherokee Casino, and raising chickens — especially the fighting chickens. He loved going to his favorite place to eat at Hibachi Grill and he loved being with his family and friends.
Those left to cherish George’s memory include his seven children, Grace Shoun (Henry), Raul Goron, Ofelia Banacia, Joselito “Boboy” Goron, Darwin Goron, Gilbert “Embot” Goron and George Goron Jr. “Jun Jun”; 22 grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; two brothers, Saturnino Goron and Pablo Goron; and one sister, Juana.
