George Thomas Fondulis, Jr., 66

Jul 30, 2021

George Thomas Fondulis, Jr., 66, of Wareham, died July 28, 2021 at home wrapped in his family’s love. He was the loving husband of Jane Collins-Fondulis and the son of the late George T. and Ruth (Connor) Fondulis. 

He was born and raised in Medford before graduating from Northeastern University where he was a brother of Tau Kappa Epsilon. He prided himself in paying for his education. Most memorable was working at the infamous Rathskeller a.k.a. The Rat and driving a cab. George enjoyed commuting to Boston for over thirty years and the friendships he formed with fellow commuters. Since 2005, he was a Project Manager in the Real Estate sector for Mass General-Brigham. His best and arguably favorite job was the role of Papou to his five grandsons.  

George was a devoted husband, father, brother, uncle and friend. Together for forty-six and married for forty years, George and his wife Jane built their life in Wareham and raised their daughters, always putting family first. He was happiest spending time with the people he loved most and seeing them happy. The expression “George will do it” was coined due to his willingness to do anything for family and friends. George enjoyed Sunday morning golfing with his father-in-law, playing pool, road trips, NYE card games, thrift shopping, time spent by the pool, good music, bird watching and painting. He was always an early riser and enjoyed sunrise drives with a coffee and, more recently, sunrise walks on Swifts Beach. One of his fondest memories was family vacations as a child at this beach. 

Survivors include his wife, Jane Collins-Fondulis; two daughters, Rachel Baptista and her husband Vernon of Wareham and Caralyne Fondulis-Pineda and her husband Abner of Los Angeles; three sisters, Cindy Outhouse and her husband Willard of Myrtle Beach, Linda Randall and her partner Dave of Buzzards Bay and Pamela Fondulis and her partner Rusty of Wareham; two brothers-in-law, Michael Collins and Timothy Collins; five grandsons, Vincent, Maximus, Tiberius, Barron and Julian; seven nieces, Christa, Julie, Stephanie, Alyssa, Sheena, Taylor and Alena; one nephew, Steven and many great-nieces and nephews and cousins. 

Visiting hours will be from 4 to 7 p.m. on Monday, August 2nd, 2021, at Chapman Funerals & Cremations – WAREHAM, 2599 Cranberry Highway, Wareham. His funeral will be held at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, August 3, 2021, from the funeral home followed by a funeral Mass at 10:00 a.m. at St. Patrick’s Church, 82 High St. Wareham.
