George was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. His greatest joy in life was his family. He enjoyed the simple pleasures, like watching his favorite game shows, going out for lunch, or making a pit stop for ice cream. He also enjoyed working on his many projects, usually ones that involved helping his friends or family in some way. He often commented on all the changes he had seen in his 97 years, but it never slowed him down. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him, and whose hearts he touched. The world is a little dimmer without him in it.
In lieu of flowers, memorial are requested to Lewisberry United Methodist Church, (lewisberryumc.susumc.org) or Residential Hospice, (www.residentialhealthcaregroup.com/services/hospice).
