George S. Wales Obituary
Wales, George S.
George Strafford Wales, born in Newton, MA, March 20, 1928, died September 3, 2017 in Granville, Ohio at the age of 89 years. George was a storied athlete and a Korean War veteran. George built a career in textiles and sportswear which took the family down south and eventually leading to Granville, OH in 1971, a town they loved and that resonated with their New England roots. He retired as V.P. of Marketing at the Golf Works in 1988. George was passionate about preserving our environment for many generations to come, and encouraged all of his fellow citizens to do the same. George is survived by his wife of 66 years, Lorraine; his children, Craig Wales (Virginia) Douglas Wales (Valerie), Jennifer Hurley-Wales (Edward); and three grandchildren.
