Lois Kessinger - Josh Baumgartner


The South Florida Gay News acknowledges the passing of Lois Kessinger, often a host at Georgie’s Alibi, and a wealth of LGBT functions in South Florida.

Lois, of course, was the mother of George Kessinger, the entrepreneur who gave us Georgie’s Alibi, and supported many of our community’s notable charities.

SFGN has learned of the passing of Wilton Manors resident Josh Baumgartner on  January 20, 2011.

Raised in Eddy, Texas, Josh was a fan of the Texas Rangers and the Texas State Historical Association, Josh was also very fond of local establishments such as the Manor Complex, Bill's Filling Station, and Georgie's Alibi. He also had a sweet tooth for To the Moon.
