Bradley Beach

George Henry Moffett born April 12, 1930 died August 3, 2017. Every moment of his life was infused with honor, courage, commitment, and love for God. Administrator, motivator, and writer his faith in God translated into a strong desire to help others in need and to encourage people to become the best that they could be. George was born and raised in Bradley Beach. He loved the city of Bradley Beach where he served as borough clerk, city treasurer, and councilman. He was the son of Benjamin Charles Moffett and Emma Jane Dodge Moffett. Brothers Benjamin Charles Moffett Jr. (deceased) and Charles W. Moffett of Leesburg, Florida. Survived by nieces Lee Moffett Etter, Joanne Moffett Taft, and Anna Moffett and nephews David, Doug, Grant, and James Moffett. George's dad was a fire chief who owned a painting and decorating shop in Bradley Beach. His mom was a busy homemaker. George Moffett attended Bradley Beach grammar school and Asbury Park High School and graduated in 1948. George served in the Marine Corps from January 1951 through January 1954. He rose to rank of staff sergeant and became part of the Fleet Landing Force. Up to this day he was proud of his decision and the life-long skills he learned through the Marines.

Upon returning to Bradley Beach George worked at the local bank. He went on to graduate from Monmouth College with an associate's degree. In 1966 George was asked to work as borough clerk and treasurer. He totally revamped and modernized the systems that are still in place today. He served as borough clerk and treasurer for 26 years. During this time, like his father, he worked with the Bradley Beach Fire and Rescue Squad. During and after this time he volunteered for the Department of Public Works. In 1954 to 1968 George started a Methodist Youth Fellowship group for teenagers. He was highly loved and regarded for his zest and compassion for kids and people of all ages. In the 1980s to 90s, George worked with the Monmouth County Probation Department where he mentored and encouraged troubled teens to live a positive life style. George's brilliant administration and organizational skills helped him to run bus trips for his church, keep track of his racket ball games, miles run, and most importantly to record and organize a UMC Bradley Beach Church and family history from 1860 to the present. George, we love and miss you and as recorded on your tee shirt.
