George E. Platt II, 67, passed away peacefully on May 31, 2014 near his home in Palm Coast, Florida. Born on August 28, 1946 to George and Irene Platt (both deceased) of Plainfield, NJ, he attended school in Plainfield and will be remembered as quite the track star. Shortly after graduating, George joined the United States Navy where he served during the Vietnam War. His professional career took shape as a graphic artist for the Johnson & Johnson Corporation in New Brunswick, New Jersey. On April 6, 1985 George married Sheila, his soul mate and lifetime love of almost 30 years. They relocated from New Jersey in 2007, dividing their time between Palm Coast, Florida and Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts. A very creative guy, George loved computers, handiwork, and stained glass design. Friends and family alike will cherish the beautiful pieces that George created over time. He was also an avid golfer and member of the Mink Meadows Golf Club in Martha's Vineyard and Grand Haven Golf Club in Palm Coast.
Above all, George will be remembered for his sense of humor and joy for life. He constantly made those around him laugh with a spontaneous comment or skeptical look. He had many friends in many cities, creating an eternity of memories and bonds.
George is survived by his wife Sheila; a son George Platt III of Tampa, Fl; one Sister Darlene "Dolly" Brown of Huntersville, NC; Mother-In-Law Doris Carter of Cinnaminson, NJ; Nieces Val (Brian) Daye of Huntersville, NC; and Aliya Carter of West New York, NJ; a nephew, Jared Daye of Huntersville, NC; and a host of extended family and friends.
