Obituary for George C. Ondrejka

January 4, 1939 - September 30, 2019
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania | Age 80


George C. Ondrejka, was born on January 4, 1939 and passed away on September 30, 2019 at home surrounded by his loving family. Husband of the late Claire A. Smith and adored father of George (Rosemary), Dennis (Artemis), Charles (Kathleen), and Claire Ann Alminde (Paul). He is also survived by his grandchildren, Dennis, Ashley, Marissa, George, Chalie, Caitlin, Christopher, Erin, Beanie, Claire Ann, Patrick, his great grandchildren Noelle, Frankie, Lola, Quinn and Jude and his brother Joseph.

George worked for almost 40 years in various roles at Rohm and Hass and ran his own business, O&H Aluminum with his brother-in-law John to better provide for their families which was always the priority.
The ultimate hard-working family man, George worked hard his whole life for them and was happiest at home on his recliner watching the "boob tube" with his family around him.

He was the best (and worst) Philly sports fan cheering and cursing the Eagles and Phillies each time he watched a game, often quoted as saying "Eh Christ eh if Philadelphia had a ping pong team, they'd suck too".
He is already terribly missed but his amazing legacy will live on in his family and the many people whose lives he impacted.
