Obituary of George B. Christie

George Barnard Christie passed away peacefully in his home, surrounded by his loved ones in Fairfield, CT, on October 18, 2021 at the age of 29, after a two-year battle with cancer. George is survived by his wife, Sarah Isabel Christie; his parents, Michael and Sarah; brother, Samuel Christie, and his wife, Jenna; identical twin, Oliver Christie; sister, Emma Christie; grandmother, Harriet Hawes Savage; several aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He is predeceased by his grandfather, George Christie; grandmother, Pat Goodwin; and grandfather, Arthur Vandervoort Savage. George was born in Greenwich, CT on November 24, 1991 to Michael Christie and Sarah Savage. He grew up in Cos Cob and attended the local schools. He graduated from St. Lawrence University in May 2013, with a degree in Economics. Upon graduation, he worked at Greenwich Capital as a Client Associate, followed by Christie | Coghlan Investment Management, and most recently as a Vice President at Renaissance Macro Research. On August 23, 2021, he married Sarah Gaffney. George was an avid outdoorsman and multi-sport athlete. He loved hiking in the Adirondack mountains, and spent his summers playing golf, followed by winter seasons skiing and playing ice hockey. He was a fan of all sports, particularly NASCAR, often enjoying races on Sunday afternoons with his family. He was the life of the party, always carrying an energy and sense of humor that naturally elevated those around him. George met the love of his life, Sarah Gaffney, in February 2019. Though their time together was short, it was filled with love, characterized by their walks with their dog Bailey, grabbing Starbucks every morning, and their daily drives to Tod's Point and Fairfield Beach Road. We will celebrate George's life on November 7, 2021 at the Little Pub, 531 E Putnam Ave, Cos Cob, CT from 4 - 7pm ET. The family has been blessed with the outpouring of love.
