George C. Mussenden went to his heavenly abode on February 16, 2021, at the age of 65. George was born in Bogota, Colombia, on October 25, 1955 to Henry and Margarita Mussenden. In 1957, the Mussenden family moved to Los Angeles, where George attended San Marino High School and graduated with a B.B.A. in Marketing from the University of Southern California. George also received his M.B.A. in International Marketing from the American Graduate School of Management. George met Maria Soares in 1986, fell madly in love after spending a few months on a traveling tour around the world, and then shortly after the trip, George moved to Sydney, Australia to be with her. George and Maria moved to Houston, Texas in 1988, married in 1989 then had their only son Matthew in October 1993. The love of his life, Maria Mussenden, passed away from breast cancer in November 2007.
Many years after Maria’s death, George met his fiancé Teresa Kellum who he has lived with for several years. George spent most of his career working in Houston in various business and teaching positions at Compaq, Robert Half Technology, Remington College, and various others.
George loved movies, Disney, Star Trek, comic books, superheroes, reading, writing, sailing, traveling, outdoor adventures, good food, and spending time with his son, fiancé Teresa Kellum and friends. George was very proud of his Colombian heritage and hard-working family who came to America to give him a better life. He was most proud of his deceased wife Maria, loving son Matthew, and his relationship with Teresa. He is survived by his son Matthew Mussenden, mother Margarita Mussenden, sister Liana Rose, brother Henry “Alexander” Mussenden, fiancé Teresa Kellum and the Soares family.
A private service will be held for him at Bradshaw-Carter Funeral Home at 1734 W. Alabama Street in Houston, Texas on February 27, 2021. Flowers, if desired, may be delivered by the morning of the service to that address.
