George Khater, born in Lebanon and long-time resident of Cleveland, passed away on April 07, 2022. He was 75 years old. George worked for the Ford plant when he first arrived, and shortly after fulfilled a dream of opening his own local business.
George loved his family and was well known for his sense of humor. He enjoyed travel, horse racing and sharing stories with people. George was a generous person and to him no one was a stranger. As an entrepreneur, he made sure to teach his daughter to value education, question everything and understand that you don't know if you can do something until you try. He will be remembered by his daughter as a father who always offered his love and guidance and as the most hard working and talented person she has ever known.
Beloved father of Sally Hoover. Son of the late Abdallah and Zahia Khater. Dear brother of Salwa Maroon, Tanios Khater, Nawal Fares, Hayat Farhat, Youssef Khater. Uncle of Fadia Farah, Lydia Archuleta and John Paul Farah.
Memorial visitation will be held at the BUSCH FUNERAL HOME (www.buschcares.com), 7501 Ridge Road, Parma, from 3:00-4:00pm Saturday April 16 where a memorial service will be held at 4:00pm.
In lieu of flowers, George would encourage you to support local businesses. He would recommend you bring your family and friends to Southside Diner (Parma, Ohio) to eat, laugh and share stories.
