George C. Kamper of Southampton, the founder of GCK Enterprises, a construction company, died of cancer on Friday at Stony Brook University Hospital. He was 56, and had been ill for nine months. 

Born on Dec. 8, 1962, in New York City to Costas Kamper and the former Mary Tsapos, he grew up in the Bayside neighborhood of Queens.

After graduating from high school and trade school, he moved to the East End, where he began his career in construction. He went on to build more than 300 homes in the area. 

He was an animal lover, he collected classic cars, and he was an enthusiastic boater.  

He is survived by his mother, Mary Kamper of Sag Harbor, a daughter, Samantha Kamper of New York City, a son, Alexander Kamper of Providence, R.I., and a brother, Ted Kamper of Queens. 

A memorial service will be held on Sunday at noon at the Bell and Anchor restaurant in Noyac. Father Constantine Lazarakis of the Greek Orthodox Church of the Hamptons, in Southampton, will attend. 

The family has suggested donations to Fighting Chance, a Sag Harbor cancer counseling center, at fightingchance.org.
