A Lutheran by faith, George loved to spend time with his grandchildren. He spoiled his two dogs Pippie, Molly; and feeding the birds and squirrels in his backyard brought much enjoyment to him.

(Albert) Burke all of Coshocton; ten grandchildren; a brother, John Gress of Conesville; five sisters, Louise Wiggins of West Lafayette, Garnet (Buryl) Cox of Tyndal, Martha (Ed) Williams, Violet (Harold) Eberwine both of Coshocton, Bertha Green of Newark; several nieces and nephews.

Military honors will be conducted by the Coshocton County Veterans Council. Calling hours will be held from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M., Monday prior to the Remembrance Service at the Free Funeral Home.
