In Loving Memory of George Thomas Komatt May 22, 1934 - December 05, 2023

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the stronghold of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1)

George Thomas Komatt (Kunjukunjukutty) of Komattu House was born to K.T. Thomas and Mariam Thomas in Poovathoor, Kerala, on May 22, 1934. He was the youngest of 12 children and shared a close, personal relationship with his siblings, their children, and his extended family members. After graduating with a B.S.E in Electrical Engineering, he came to Kirkee, Pune, India, in the early 1960s and worked for the Chief Inspectorate of Armaments. Kunjukunjukutty immigrated to the United States in 1975, joining his wife and creating a life together in Philadelphia, PA. He was self-employed in the remodeling and constructing of residential and commercial properties, retiring in 2009. Kunjukunjukutty recently celebrated 55 years of marriage with Ammini, his beloved wife. They are blessed with two children, a son-in-law, and twin grandchildren. Kunjukunjukutty always had a curious mind, was charming and kind, with an incredible sense of humor. He spoke the truth in love, stood for justice, and had a strong work ethic. He was an avid fan of professional sports, especially the Philadelphia 76ers and the Philadelphia Eagles. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, meeting people from all walks of life, traveling, and admiring different cultures. Kunjukunjukutty was incredibly generous with his time, assisting anyone who needed him. All those who knew and loved him will treasure his outstanding and giving life. Kunjukunjukutty had a steadfast, unwavering faith and a strong relationship with Jesus Christ, starting as a young man at Maramon Mar Thoma, his home church. He was knowledgeable regarding the scriptures and an active member of Mar Thoma churches in Maramon, Kirkee Mar Thoma Church in Pune, India, and Philadelphia Mar Thoma Church, where he was one of the founding members in 1976. Kunjukunjukutty was a servant-leader, focusing on the growth of the Philadelphia Mar Thoma Church through active participation in the Executive Committees, Mandalam, Edavaka Mission, and the Church Choir.

Kunjukunjukutty was preceded in death by his eleven siblings and his parents. He is survived by his beloved wife, Ammini; loving children, Thomas and Susan; cherished son-in-law, Chris; adoring grandchildren, Maya and Christopher; and a host of relatives and friends.

“Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul,

And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Heals all your disease.” (Psalm 103:1-3)
