A few days after being admitted to hospital, Ġorġ Agius, also known as Ġorġ tal-Mużew or l-Għannej tal-Mulej, it was reported that he had passed away. However, this seems to be false information since he was in fact taken to the St Vincent de Paul Residence.
Relatives of Ġorġ said yesterday morning that he was taken to the residency and thanked all those who supported them in this difficult time. They claimed that after all this time helping them, it was time for them to help him too.
Another Ġorġ Agius has passed away, who was also known as tal-mużew.
Ġorġ, who is now 92 years old, spent his life spreading joy to the sick and the elderly in hospitals in Malta as well as residencies for the elderly. Many people in hospital met him and heard him singing spontaneous folk.
