He was born on January 25, 1930 to Sam and Katherine (Barbato) Colletti in Houston, Texas. He graduated from Sam Houston High School. George served in the U S Army 14th Regiment 25th Division and served in the Korean War. He was honorably discharged in 1952. George was employed by J. Weingarten Supermarkets serving in many capacities for 20 years. He then owned and operated thrif-tee super markets until he retired in 1990.
