George Albert Dehner, 72, of Bozeman passed away at the home of his son and daughter-in-law, Don and Kathy, on March 21, 2008. He was born Feb. 20, 1936, in Poplar, to John and Grace (Turner) Dehner. He graduated from high school in Poplar.
The Guest Book is expired.
He married Jane Olson in 1957, and the couple later divorced.
He moved to Billings in the early 1960s and then to Bozeman, where he lived for the rest of his life. He was a diesel mechanic, working for H.F. Johnson and Montana Readi-Mix.
George served in the Army Reserves and the Montana National Guard from April 1954 to April 1962.
He enjoyed motorcycling, snowmobiling (on Ski-doo's only!), camping and fishing. North Meadow Creek was his favorite place. As years went on he switched to four-wheeling. He also enjoyed his woodworking, making tables, chairs, a rocking horse and a doll cradle.
He was preceded in death by his sister, Lois, and his brother, Leon.
George is survived by his sister, Marie Dehner of Tampa, Fla.; children, Donald (Kathy) Dehner of Bozeman, and Sharon (Dale) Weber of Billings; grandchildren, Adam Dehner, Ashley (Troy) Butler, and Matthew Weber; and great-grandchild, Ayla.
