George was a veteran of the Korean war. He was in two battles for which he won two bronze battle stars and an infantry combat badge. He retired from Sangamon Company in 1989 after 41 years of service. He was especially proud of his plaque, Sangamon ring, his dome desk clock, and his stately grandfather clock, all of which he received in honor of those many years. He was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Taylorville. He loved to go fishing in his younger days, and to read western novels and watch TV. He lived for many years at Taylorville Care Center and he was very happy there.
