George Joseph Masterson, 89

ROCKY POINT — George Masterson of Rocky Point, North Carolina passed away peacefully at the age of 89 on August 16, 2021. George, born in Walkhill, NY, grew up in a family of nine and spent his younger years in Bronx, NY. He is survived by his sister Katherine Butler of New York; two sons, Christopher Masterson of Pennsylvania, and Brian Masterson of Florida, and five grandchildren, Annie, Paul, Molly, Isabella, and Ian Masterson. His late wife, Ludie (Pope) Masterson passed away in 20210. George was a master level welder who spent much of his life working in the power generation industry across the United States as both a Boiler Maker and Steam Fitter. He moved to the Wilmington, NC area in 1979. After retiring, George became a steward of his land in Rocky Point, where he spent many hours growing fruits and vegetables. He loved music, dancing, watching football and golf, and tinkering in his workshop. George was also a classic “do it yourself-er”, who never met a project he couldn’t complete. During his final two years, George resided at The Laurels of Pender, where he received excellent care throughout and especially during COVID-19, and in his final days. In lieu of flowers or cards please donate to a Parkinson’s charity of your choice.
