Gheorghe (Ghita) as he was called by his wife and friends, was born on 12/02/1935 to Maria and Gheorghe Ardeleanu in Tuzla, Constanta Romania. He met his wife at work and they married in 1959. After a year they welcomed their first daughter Mariana in April 1960. They moved from Tuzla to Eforie Sud in 1968 and welcomed their second daughter Dana Georgeta in January 1970. During their almost 62 years of marriage  they build their own home from the ground up, they worked together as a team to make a good living for their daughters and helped raise their grandchildren as well. 

Gheorghe loved life! He loved to dance, he loved music, loved to cook, loved to have fun with his family and friends and until about 10 years ago he loved his beer! After he retired he took over the kitchen where we will find him with a cookbook open on the table trying new receipes. He always gave money to his grandchildren to buy candy or play at the arcades. Gheorghe or Tataia to his grandchildren, was a good husband, a good provider to his family, a good father, a great grandfather, and a good friend to have. He is survived by his wife Dorina, his two daughters Mariana and Dana, three grandchildren Bogdan, Cody and Anthony,  and two great-grandchildren Finnegan and Coleson. Back in Romania were he was born, he is survived by 3 sisters and a younger brother. 

Geheroghe will be deeply missed by his family and friends! Please join us in a celebration of his life!
