Georgie Seville - George Larosa - Jorge Loaiza

🎶 You ask me if there'll come a time
When I grow tired of you
Never my love
Never my love

Forever beloved by Lucia, his parents Rubén and Lucila, siblings Betty, Gladys and Rodrigo, nieces and nephews Marlon, Brian, Tatiana, Diego, Daisy, Harris, Mason, and Aria, Lucia's family Máire, Fergus, Brian, Brona, Helena and Nic, his extended family, brotherhood of musicians, niteclub families and a multitude of wonderful friends.

Born Jorge Loaiza in Colombia, Georgie spent his childhood in New Jersey fostering his love of music and teaching himself guitar. He publicly became Georgie Seville as he rocked and rolled downtown New York City in many bands including The Cherries, Chewy, Sticky, D Generation, Running Red, The Downtowns, and High Rollers to name a few. Nitelife creations and collaborations including On!, Lust, Glam 2000, Mofo, The Delancey and The DL. He was a unique individual no matter which name you knew him by. Privately he was George Larosa, a loving son, brother, uncle and friend. Personally he was my love Georgie.

His fun loving attitude, handsome good looks, gregarious nature, infectious smile, impeccable sense of style, innate musical dexterity and unbounded generosity endeared him to all. He was never happier than when he had a guitar in hand writing a new song. Georgie lived an extraordinary life and so very sadly left this world suddenly on June 15, 2019.

In lieu of flowers consider making a donation to the Musician's Foundation in Georgie Seville's name:

🎶 You wonder if this heart of mine
Will lose its desire for you
Never my love
Never my love
