Jorge immigrated from Argentina to the United States in 1958. An accomplished engineer/scientist, his contributions to the advancement and security of his beloved adopted country were many and varied. He was especially proud of his part in the American Aero Space program, as well as our country’s defense efforts. Mr. Morando held a great many patents and awards for his designs from NASA and the various branches of the military. His Apollo inventions are lying on the moon today, and any time you leave the ground with any craft you will fly with Jorge’s inventions. He can lay claim to Air Conditioning components that are still being installed today. As impressive as his credentials are, his technical expertise is not his only talents. Jorge was also a man of the arts. He painted beautifully and wrote poetry and short stories, many of which were published. His brilliant mind and great personality will be missed by all who knew him.

In lieu of flowers a memorial donation to a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
