George was born May 25, 1919 at the Morgan Creek Ranch in May, Idaho. He loved the Pahsimeroi Valley where he grew up as a cowboy and a fisherman. He had a lot of fun with his brothers, Frank and John, and was elected president of his senior class.

George met Margaret Jane McKnight from Moreland, Idaho, at the draft board in Oklahoma and they married on November 11, 1944. Five days later he went to war.
George and Margaret had five children. George then married Doris Stott of Blackfoot and later they divorced. On May 24, 1981 he married Myrtle (Micky) Fowler, the true love of his life in Blackfoot, Idaho.
George and Micky had a full life, fishing, doing mission building for youth with a mission, Servants on Wheels group always ready to give help to anyone, the Sowers group through the Baptist Church.

The family wishes to thank the Arctic Circle, Emmett, where they ate lunch every day. When they didn't show up for lunch for two days the employees called to find out why and found they both needed help and both were hospitalized. Thank you for caring so much.
Also, the family thanks the staffs of Horizon Hospice and Valor Health. We are happy you are with all of your family now. We love you, Dad.
