George P. "Buddy" Vogel Obituary
George P. 'Buddy' Vogel
Resident of Palo Alto
George P. Vogel, "Buddy", 89, passed away on February 19, 2014. He was born to George Henry Vogel and Katherine Margaret Paulus in Washington, D.C. where he spent his growing up years.
After serving in the Navy during World War II, George received his college degree from George Washington University. He then embarked on a long and successful career with AT&T. At 52, after 30 years of service, he kept himself busy with varied sales and handyman jobs.
George's love of traveling, especially by train, was legendary. He took trips by Greyhound across the country, by raft through the Grand Canyon, and by train across Siberia, Australia, Switzerland and South Africa. His storytelling about his experiences was always entertaining and only occasionally embellished.
George and Ann, his wife of 68 years, whom he met in high school, have resided in Palo Alto since 1966. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his two daughters, Kay (William), Janet (Jim) and daughter-in-law Kathy, and six grandchildren, Kimberley, Christopher, Katie, Jeff, Kelly and Eric and great grandson, Bennett. He was preceded in death by his son, Ron.
A memorial service is planned for a later date.
