George was the biological son of G. Hunter Filbert and Mamie Steinmetz Filbert (given name Mary Catherine). He was adopted in 1919 by his aunt and uncle, Bessie R. Steinmetz and Clarence Jared Hiester. He had two brothers, Norman A. and Russell J. Hiester.
He was the husband of the late Erma Mae Kreisher Hiester.
He is survived by a daughter, Georgeann Hoffman Sprague, and two grandchildren, Reed J. Hoffman and Jessica E. Cobb.
George was a talented athlete in his younger years. He excelled in football, basketball, baseball, golf, swimming, and bowling. He loved to fish and spent much time in his retirement years at his second home in Rehobeth Beach, Delaware.
He worked in the manufacturing sector at first, managed a bowling alley but later owned two successful businesses, a grocery store and a tavern in his home town of Kenhorst. In the 1950s he took a less time consuming job with Metropolitan Edison Co. as a Right-of-Way man where he helped the company secure the rights to build the large electric towers in Lancaster County.
He was a skilled amateur woodworker, and enjoyed building furniture with plans he created himself.
He also held a patent.
