George Arthur Cross III
Aka R.V. Doctor George
Born in Cleveland, Ohio on November 24, 1941, to Gizella and George A.Cross Jr.
Preceded in death by his parents, George descended into Heaven on July 28, 2014, to join them and other relatives who have gone on before him. George left behind his partner and love of his life for 26 years, Ginny Shaw; his brother, Michael of Sacramento, CA; two sons, Eric Todd Cross of Sacramento, CA and George Arthur Baldwin of Knoxville, Tennessee; and 5 beautiful grandchildren, Erica and Allie Cross of Sacramento; Anthony Baldwin of Knoxville, TN; April Baldwin now residing in Redding, CA; and Austin Miller of Citrus Heights, CA, currently serving in the U.S. Army at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. With all his heart, George loved and cherished his sons and grandchildren. Many other family members are left with only pictures and memories of George…..the man of the day….the go to man….the giving, kind man to all who knew him, generous to a fault….the favorite Uncle of Jason Johnson…. and the man who loved giving hugs.
George was always the life of the party, the scuba diver who always went the wrong direction under water, the one who attended his brother’s 50th birthday in a diaper with a binky and a huge baby bottle (it was a costume party, but George was the only one who wore one), the rest of the guests were dressed up….it didn’t bother George.
George was the sole owner of R.V. Doctor George, a recreation vehicle repair shop in Sacramento. His business always flourished because of George…he was the heart and soul of the business. He lived and breathed R.V.’s. His business was called the R.V. Stockyard of Sacramento, serving customers all over the United States and many foreign countries. If George didn’t have the R.V. part requested, most generally no one did. He was very fortunate to have an exceptional crew, he always said. George was able to go scuba diving and travel with Ginny thanks to the support and dedication of his crew. He trusted and cared for each and every one of them.
