George Kalman Szep

January 1, 1946 — November 29, 2018

George Kalman Szep, 72, of Belleville, NJ, died peacefully on November 29th, 2018, surrounded by his loving family, at Clara Maass Hospital.

Born in Montclair, NJ, George was a life-long resident of Belleville, NJ. He served two years as a private in the US Army, stationed at Fort Bliss, TX and the Nike Missile Battery in Clementon, NJ. George worked for Schering – Plough in Kenilworth, NJ for over 30 years, having retired almost 15 years ago.

George was a Renaissance man, fiercely independent, inquisitive, a voracious reader, an exceptional poet, and a piano enthusiast, whose musical taste stretched from Chopin to Taylor Swift. He lived his life exactly the way he wanted to, with no excuses and no apologies.

George was predeceased by his parents, Edward F. and Helen (Gorley) Szep. He is survived by his brothers, Edward J. (Carole) Szep and Donald P. (Mary Ann) Szep; eight nieces and nephews; twelve grand-nieces and nephews; and four cousins.
