RIP George Eshareturi
The St. Dymphna's family is mourning the loss of George Eshareturi, a longtime friend and doorman of the bar here on Avenue A between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place.
He died suddenly on Saturday night. Eshareturi, who grew up in the Bronx and played college football at Rutgers, was 36.
Several people have left flowers and candles in a makeshift memorial on the bar's step...
The bar's ownership also established a GoFundMe campaign for George's family. Earlier this week, George's father died from complications due to Alzheimer's.
Per the GoFundMe page: "George will forever be remembered for the kind, charismatic person he was — and the positive energy he brought to every personal interaction."
