It is with deep sadness to announce the passing of World War II veteran and documentarian, George Ciampa.

 

He died peacefully succumbing to a terminal illness in the comfort of his Palm Springs home on January 3rd with loved ones by his side.

 

From 2006 to 2020, George produced six documentaries on World War II with the main goal of remembering all those who fought and died in the war and to impart the stories of the survivors. We know these documentaries will forever be his legacy and will continue to educate future generations on the costs of freedom.

 

George would always say he wasn’t a hero, but a survivor. That the true heroes are the ones who perished. However, we all know George was a hero and a great man.

 

The family has decided to have a private funeral service, however feel free to contact us with any thoughts about George and we may share these on the website. Please keep George’s family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

-Ronald Reagan
