* George Longshore, vice president of organizational effectiveness and human resources at Catholic Health Care East, was fatally shot Nov. 13 in a robbery on a northeast Washington street. He was 58.
Two men confronted Longshore as he walked to a parked car with two women and a man shortly before 11 p.m., according to District of Columbia police. One assailant demanded money, struck three of the victims and shot Longshore in the chest before fleeing, police said.
"We are deeply saddened by the death of our colleague," Bob Stanek, president and CEO of Newton Square, Pa.-based Catholic Health East, wrote in a statement. "As both a friend and co-worker, George was a man of great faith, peace and compassion. He worked tirelessly on behalf of Catholic healthcare. He was dedicated to his profession and to the growth of others, both personally and professionally. We extend our prayers and heartfelt sympathy to his family."
Longshore, of Elkins Park, Pa., served on the board of advisers at the DeSales Spirituality Center and as a trustee at the DeSales School of Theology, both in Washington. He also was a trustee for Northeastern Hospital in Philadelphia.
Longshore is survived by his wife, Joanne, and two daughters.
