    Two Visions of America by Don Jans

    Obituary – In memory of George Tash

    George Miller, Citizens Journal

    George Tash, beloved husband of former Citizens Journal Ventura County Editor Debra Tash, has unfortunately passed away.  He was a fine man, intelligent, inventive, loving, dedicated, humorous, insightful and also a great supporter of Citizens Journal VC and righteous causes in general. I’m pretty sure he’s made it to heaven by now.  Our Condolences to our longtime friend and colleague Debra.
    Funeral is at Conejo Mountain Funeral Home, 2052 Howard Rd, Camarillo at 10 am on Wednesday March 8.  There will be a celebration afterward for friends of the family.

    Born in Los Angeles on January 5th, 1941, George Tash was the 7th child of Barney and Bertha Tash; George was a first-generation American as his parents were Russian immigrants that fled intense oppression.

    He grew up in El Cerno and attended San Fernando Valley High School. After high school, he wanted to buy his first house. His Father, Barney, worked as a tool and die maker and managed to save up to 7,500 dollars for a lifetime of work. Barney offered to give him all his money as a gift. George refused and said it would be a loan.

    At this dilapidated home, he learned the craft of building. The house had a Friday night plumbing problem which George tackled by inventing the Drain King.

    He brought his invention down to the local hardware store, and his supplies were gone after a week. He thought they had been stolen, but it turned out they were a hit and sold out the stock. Thus began his venture into inventing. He then sold the house he fixed up, paid his Father back, and thus began his real estate adventures.

    Married in 1975 to Debra Tash, they raised their two children, Jennifer and Adam, in Northridge, California. In 1985 they moved to Ventura County, where George first built his dream barn and BBQ. Building his home last. George and Debra started a school for their employees that focused on each child’s individual gifts and were named one of the top ten companies to work for in working mother magazine. George’s company grew to over 24 employees and over 40 products.

    He built Eden Gardens as an events venue and a meditation garden he used every day until his last day on earth. He died on March 2nd, 2023. He is survived by his wife; of 48 years; his two children, Jennifer and Adam. His four grandchildren, Julia, Christiano, Cole, and Venice. He showed the world what it was to live a purpose-driven life.

    Our Grandson is getting married at Hartley Botanica in Somis, and we just came home after looking at the beautiful venue. We were surprised to see the name George Tash on the information board and wondered if it could possibly be the George Tash that we went to San Fernando High School with. My husband was in the same class, Avalons. We shared several memories of him with each other. He was a very nice person in school and we’re not surprised that he had a very successful and happy life. Our condolences to his wife and family. Frank and Bobbi Toro. p.s. He had a best friend (relative?) in school by the name of Gary Shapiro. Wondering if he’s still in the area?

    I’m so very sad George had passed. He was my favorite patient that I happily saw every three months for his dental cleaning. I always loved seeing him and we shared 24 years of stories, memories, and invention ideas that he could invent one day. I’m so happy to tears that we have the same birthday…January 5th. I will miss him so much. I hope he will see my beloved mother in law, Monika, in heaven. She had just passed in September. I hope to see you again one day George. Sincerely, your dental hygienist, Betty

    RIP Mr. Tash. I have used Drain Kings many times and never knew the history.
