 George was born June 22, 1941, to Attelio and Mary Bastari in Vineland, NJ.  He married Julie Ann Frazier May 23, 1969, in Cleveland, MS.  George worked as a supervisor at Baxter for over 30 years as well as farming his families land for many years.  He is preceded in death  by his parents, Attelio and Mary Bastari; and grandchildren, Jesse Lee Atkins and Clayton Cole Bastari.

He was a loving Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather.  He was an avid runner for many years, but after years of running from Shaw to Cleveland took its toll, he was forced to change his hobbies. He loved cooking. His spaghetti gravy was his trademark. He loved listening to music. Motown and Blues were his favorites. He loved spending time with his family. He also loved being  outdoors, especially cutting grass on his riding lawnmower and being out in the field on his tractor.  

George is survived by his loving wife of  53 years, Julie Bastari; children, Angela Marie Bastari of Dallas, TX,  Deborah Jane Bastari of Little Elm, TX, Chris Bastari (Shannon) of Cleveland, MS, Leigh Ann Bastari Mullen (Bobby) of Cleveland, MS, Joshua Lamar Bastari of Shaw, MS, and Daniel Bastari (Amanda) of Skene, MS; grandchildren, Fallon (Jordan), David (Lauren), Devan (Alex), Daylen, Dalton, David, Kaleigh, Lars, Presley, Jacob Ryan, Kellar; great grandchildren, Olivia, Ava, and Ella; sister, Dianne Bethards (Len) of Davie, FL; his nephew's Todd (Matilda) and John; nieces, Suzanne (William) and Amy (Giubran).
