“I will love and honor you all the days of my life…” were words he lived by for the love of his life, Arlene (nee Frew). They celebrated 61 years of marriage and together raised 6 children.

George was very proud of his long career as a gas station maintanence and repairman for Amoco, Peter J. Hartmann and Hauck Oil. Eventually starting his own repair business in 1981, he owned and operated George’s Maintanence Service until his retirement in 2012.
Family was everything to George, our dad, and it brought him great joy when everyone was together. He will always be in our thoughts and forever in our hearts.
