George went into the Navy at age 17 and served for four years on various destroyers. In 1949 he went to work for the US Forest Service working on local lookouts. He studied Forestry at the U of M and went on to be a full time employee of the Forest Service as a Forester until his retirement in 1979. He was active with the Boy Scouts of America and Little League baseball.
George was a member in the VFW and an active member in Odd Fellows from 1965 to present where he served as Noble Grand, Vice Grand, Sec-treasurer, and Past Grand. George had a dry sense of humor and a burning desire for knowledge about alternative medicine and healing. He will be greatly missed by everyone whose life he touched. Funeral services will be later in the spring.
Donations can be made to the local Odd Fellows organization for their building fund.
