George had been ill for the past two months and had attained the age of 81 years, 2 months and 11 days.

George accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal savior and followed him in baptism as a young man and at the time of his passing was a faithful member of the Seaton Faith Fellowship Church, Dixon. He loved to study the Bible and was a true Christian witness to all he met. During his working life, he was employed as a carpenter and was a member of the Carpenters Local No. 2298 for over 55 years.
