George Henry Musk

George Henry Musk 1959 – 2022 KENNEBUNKPORT – Beloved son of Carol Sue (Hagerthy) Musk and the late Harry B. Musk, passed away peacefully on January 10, 2022 in his sleep overnight. George was born on 14th January 1959 and grew up in Bath on Green Street where he was an original member of the ‘Green Street Gang’ playing kick ball or hide and seek late into the summer nights under the lampposts. George ran through Quimby Field, climbing trees and running through the woods at Huse School, cycling with the family dog, Lassie. George was one of the “kids” in Huse’s school’s summer recreation program. He was first baseman on consecutive Little League Championship teams for the Elks. He was the starting center as a 4th grader for the championship flag football team. George was active in the Red Cross Summer Swim Program – Junior Lifesaving. Sr lifesaving and WSI lifesaving, and at Camp Davenport. George learned to caddy and play golf at Sebasco Estates where he became a lifeguard throughout high school and college. George learned to skate on Goddards Pond and spent many nights skating or sledding on the golf course. George learned to ski at SkyHy and was an accomplished member of the Sugarloaf Ski Club. George graduated from Morse High School in 1977 with honors. He was an exceptional student-athlete. He was a member of the National Honor Society and captain of the Dirigo Boys swim team where he held the long distance record for many years. George enjoyed helping build the Homecoming class floats and was in every MOHIBA at Morse High School. George loved school and loved his classmates. George moved down to Boston for college and graduated from Tufts University in 1981, earning dual degrees in business studies and Middle Eastern theology. He discovered his love for music and cooking in Boston, where he was a successful chef at various restaurants and regularly attended punk rock concerts. Eventually, George discovered his true calling; sales and entrepreneurship. He built a very successful independent entrepreneurial business on Wall Street and later served as Regional Sales Manager for Indoff Corporation. George was very proud of the fact that he was a pioneer of “working from home” and had worked successfully from home for over 30 years at Indoff Corporation. Later in George’s life he discovered a passion for karate and went on to be an advent cook and loved to read. He also enjoyed watching sports, often taking his children to Bowdoin College hockey games. And almost never misses a New England Patriots game. In George’s heart, after all the accolades and successes, his three children Bryan, Ashley and Christopher were his most cherished accomplishments. His children will always remember him for his sense of humor, his positive outlook on life and his good advice, no matter how dire the situation. George’s intellect, wit and unique spin on life will be sorely missed. George is survived by his mother, Carol Sue (Hagerthy) Musk; brother, Greg Musk, and his wife Gail, sister, Cynthia Musk-Fontanez and her husband Fran; his wife Laurie Musk; his children, his son, Bryan Musk and his wife, Alicia and their two wonderful children Henry and Amelia Rae; son, Christopher Musk, daughter, Ashley Musk; “Cousins” Pamela, Tamara, Cama, Dana, Sue Ellen and Albert Hagerthy, Brian, Julie, Annie Mulligan; and several nieces and nephews who were all beloved. A special contact with Todd Prawer, Lonny Povich and Todd Coffin, his childhood best friends. George would be remiss if he didn’t cheerfully mention “no hard feelings” to Mary, Lois, and Laurie…for better or for worse.
