George Leo Degnan Obituary
George Leo Degnan, 81, went peacefully in his sleep to meet the Lord on Sunday, June 10, 2018. George was a lifelong resident of Coatesville, PA leaving the area in 2008 to go live with his daughter. George was a Seaman in the U.S. Navy serving from 1954-1962 aboard the destroyer U.S.S. Charles P. Cecil, DDR-835 where he received a National Defense Service medal. While on a furlough from Elkton, MD, he found his way to Coatesville, PA where he met and fell in love with the love of his life Olga (Krawchuck) Degnan, who succumbed on September 1, 2007. They married in 1955 and shared 52 years together. George worked for the Budd Company in Eagle, PA (formerly known as the Gindy Manufacturing Corporation), Downingtown, PA as a welder. After the closing of the plant, George held a maintenance job before landing a position with the Coatesville VA Medical Center in 1980 as an employee of Medical Administration Service in their Mailroom. George loved his job as he processed the mail, had a motorized cart and delivered the mail throughout the large campus facility. He was very proud and honored to serve his fellow veterans and that he got to see his daughter & son-in-law daily as they also worked there. He retired in 1990. George was an avid Philadelphia sports fan (especially the Phillies & Eagles) and never missed watching a game. He loved taking yearly trips to Pennsylvania to visit family and loved to talk on the phone to his family and friends. In addition to his late wife, Olga, George is survived by a daughter, Marcia Sage of Charleston, SC, wife of Jeffrey Sage, a son George Degnan of West Chester, PA, husband of Diane Degnan; 2 sisters Judy Chappell of Merritt Island, Florida and Nancy Myllymacki of Northport, FL and New London, CT. He adored his five grandchildren Ryan, Jason, Brendan, Justin and Kimberly. He was preceded in death by a sister, Patricia Ballard of New London, CT.
