WATERTOWN — George F. Miscavage, 74, of Watertown, passed away on Thursday, April 28, 2022, at Waterbury Hospital. He was the partner of Jacqueline “Jackie” (Davis) Tasker.
George was born on January 6, 1948, in Waterbury, the son of the late Frank G. and Helen (Pernerewski) Miscavage. He attended Crosby High School in Waterbury.
