George Mansy Obituary

As Bruce Springsteen once penned “he was the last of the Duke St. Kings”

On March 3, 2024 we lost our brother, uncle, cousin and friend…George N. Mansy, born August 3, 1954 in Washington D.C.  And also known in Alexandria, Virginia as Generous George… former owner of Generous George’s Positive Pizza and Pasta Place Inc…originally called The Yellow Deli.

Eccentric, humorous, creative and a world globe trotter, George was a force of nature and an unforgettable character.  He will be indelibly remembered for all his one liners “Each bite is dynamite” and “Every thing spicy is nicey.” He was definitely a visionary and his businesses located at 3006 Duke Street in Alexandria, Va. thrived for over 30 years. He loved God, good food, the beach, art, travel and people. 

George left us after a 20 year battle of multiple health issues caused by an aortic aneurysm. It was not an easy road, but we know his body and mind are finally free.

He truly had a generous heart to those in need, and was a free spirit who never met a stranger. 

He will be dearly missed by his sisters Suzanne M. Noble (Robert), Yvonne Y. Barefoot (Jeff), Teresa M. Cook (Anthony), brother Michael W. Mansy (Katherine) Sister-in-law Dr. Donna Mansy, Sister-in-law Caroline G. Mansy and countless nieces, nephews and cousins.

We would be remiss if we did not mention his mentors in business, Nabil Kassir of Virginia Beach, Va. who taught him how to make a pizza at Chichos restaurant, and Nick Latsios, a dear friend and motivator.  

George was predeceased by his parents, Victor (Fahmi) M. & Tamam C. Mansy, and brother A. Philip Mansy.

A private service will take place at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the St. Judes Children Research Hospital.
