George married Carole Evjy on November 25, 1961, at Bethany Lutheran Church in Spencer. He was a jack-of-all-trades, working as a tree trimmer, landscaper and farmer, until his retirement in 1995. He enjoyed metal detecting, collecting rocks and coins and tinkering around with things.
George was preceded in death by his parents and wife Carole in 2001. He passed away November 10, 2011 at home at the age of 76.
Left to cherish his memory are his four daughters, Constance (Kerry) Sanders, Rebecca (Ronald) Sondergard, Deborah Kirchner and Kimberly Kirchner; two granddaughters; other relatives; and many friends.
Graveside services will be held Tuesday, November 22 at 2 P.M., at Oakland Cemetery located at 495th St. just north of Peterson, Iowa. Following the graveside services, there will be a gathering of friends and family at his home.
