Clinton Everett George, age 75, born in Lincoln, Nebraska to Clinton Everett Sr. and Mary George, died peacefully and unexpectedly at his home in Paso Robles on January 12, 2017. He was a resident of the North County, moving from Los Angeles in 1974. It was there he learned his craft of jewelry making and design, becoming a master jeweler and opening his first store in Pasadena. For several years, he was the proprietor of Clinton Jewelers in Atascadero, crafting beautiful custom pieces. Though jewelry was Clint’s primary medium throughout his professional career, he was a true renaissance man. He explored the arts widely, working in stained glass, oils, and still and video photography. He willingly shared those skills with anyone who was curious.
That generosity was the defining characteristic of Clint’s life. He was an exemplar of compassion, generosity and true humility to all who knew him. He contributed generously to many charities. He was a true and loyal friend. Above all he was a loving and devoted husband to his dear wife Sharon.
Clint and Sharon enjoyed RVing, and traveling the world together. Clint’s generosity extended to cheerfully (really) having his mother in law along on many of their trips.
Clint is survived by his devoted wife Sharon, niece Connie Young, nephew Dean Young, and nephew Gary Young, to whom he was especially close. He was preceded in death by his loving sister Dorothy Young.
A graveside service was held at Los Osos Valley Memorial Park.
Donations in Clint’s memory may be made to Congregation Ohr Tzafon, Atascadero, CA, The American Cancer Society, or the charity of your choice.
