George Daniel Groeber, 84, High Hill, passed away Friday, June 8, 2018, at his home.

George, a former heavy equipment operator, was born Nov. 12, 1933, in Gore, the son of Gustave Groeber and wife Anna Mae. He was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Jonesburg, a former member of the O'Fallon Lions Club, Auxiliary Police in O'Fallon and the American Legion. George served his country in the U.S. Army.

George was an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and attended spring training for many years. He also traveled and visited almost all 50 states. George loved going to the casino, tinkering around his house and always had the perfect yard. You could see his Christmas spirit by the decorations he displayed in his home and yard each year.
