George Alonzo Foye III ’30

Published in Oct. 10, 1990, issue

GEORGE DIED after a long illness at his home in Cocoa Beach, Fla. Mar. 3,1990. He was born in Jersey City, NJ., and prepared at Lawrenceville. Junior and senior years he roomed with Paul Maloney, and graduated with an A.B. in architecture. He spent the Depression years in real estate in N.Y.C., and eventually toured Europe for two years studying architecture in the third dimension. After two uneventful years in the Army, George went west to join Richard Crowther and Associates in Denver, Colo., and to look for a home site similar to an area he loved in his travelsInnsbruck and the Austrian Tyrol. He was successful, and in 1946 married Beatrice Jacobs.

His affiliation with Richard Crowther lasted until 1962 when George and the family moved to Cocoa Beach, Fla., where he was appointed staff architect of the Kennedy Space Center. in 1973 George retired and became an accomplished watercolorist.

George's family, all of whom survive him, consists of his wife, Beatrice; a son, George A. TV; and grandson, George A. V; and a daughter, Suzanne Kit Fields. George had a penchant for making people laugh and will be missed by all who knew him. Our sympathies go out to his family and friends.
