George Abdiel Bollinger, of Westminster, completed his life journey of 88 years and went to be with our Lord on May 21, 2017. Born in (Smallwood) Westminster, MD, he was the son of the late Edward Bollinger and D. Jeanette Owings Bollinger. Survived by daughter Joy Bollinger and husband R. Harvey Mann, Jr. of Westminster; grandsons- Adam Forrester of Tampa, FL and Chase Forrester of Westminster; sister Audrey Crist of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and many nieces & nephews. He was predeceased by son, Gary George Bollinger in 1982 and wife of 65 years, Mary Ruth Myers Bollinger in 2017. He was a "jack of many trades". Some were: farming (dairy, grain, vegetable, orchard & wormseed), huckster route sales, lifeguard, excavating, construction, auctioneer, realtor then broker-developer. He was a Carroll County native and loved this area. He was an avid hunter and had a fondness for his beagles. Many enjoyed his quick wit and master story-telling of hunting, his travels, and adventures and growing up on a farm. He and his wife traveled to all 50 states, Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean. He and his grandson traveled Europe. George was a Jousting Master of Ceremonies and did many charity auctions. He was an adventurist- such as building and flying an ultralight plane. He mentored and enjoyed his grandsons. He was a member of Farm Bureau; a fireman for Reese Fire Dept.; 60 year plus Mason/Shriner of the Westminster Door to Virtue Lodge # 46 and a lifetime member of Deer Park United Methodist Church. His service and burial will be private. Prayers of support for his family will be appreciated. He was a great source of laughter and inspiration and will be deeply missed.
