Reider III, George Monroe

George Monroe Reider III, most recently of Denver, Colorado, passed away on January 28, 2019 at the age of 51. He graduated from Arizona State University in 1989 and was a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. He and his wife of 28 years, Nancy (Egger) Reider, were engaged while attending ASU and married soon after graduation. George, a deeply loved husband and father of three, was known to all for his engaging personality and devilish sense of humor. He enjoyed an extensive career in retail, with positions at Banana Republic; Polo Ralph Lauren; Ann Taylor; Little Me; and White House/Black Market. At the time of his death, George was the North American CEO of Magic Memories, a worldwide attraction, photography and tourism business.
Throughout his career, George was dedicated to developing leadership skills and personal growth in his employees and using his experience to give back to his community. He was also passionate about helping others through difficult life circumstances and was actively involved in Habitat for Humanity and St. Matthew’s House, an agency in Naples, Florida, that works to provide resources for the homeless, food for the needy, and comfort for the addicted and suffering. He often said that people were his passion. In his spare time, George enjoyed traveling with his family and was an avid runner.
George is survived by his wife, Nancy, his three children: Ella (23), Abby (20), and Geordy (12); his parents, George and Carol (Stouffer) Reider Jr. of Farmington, Connecticut; his brothers, Mark Reider of Rocky Hill, Connecticut, and Todd Reider of Raleigh, North Carolina; his in-laws, Arlyn and Wendy (Anderson) Egger of Chandler, Arizona; his sister-in-law and brother-in-law David and Susan (Egger) Barrera of Fullerton, California; sister-in-law Lisa Reider of Southington, Connecticut; several beloved nephews and a niece; as well as several aunts, uncles, and many cousins. He was predeceased by his oldest brother David in 2008.
