George Weston Waltenspiel Obituary
George Weston Waltenspiel

- - George Weston Waltenspiel has gone to Heaven. George was a good man; he was loved as a son, husband, father, grandfather and friend. He will be dearly missed.

George was born in Susanville, CA., but grew up in Reno, NV right down on Stewart St. He attended local schools and graduated from the University of Nevada Reno majoring in forestry. George also served in the military, in the army. He was always grateful that it had been during peacetime.

George met the loved of his life early and he and Elizabeth Alice Zang (Betty) lived a long and happy life together. They lived in Idaho for a short time while he worked for the Fish and Game Department. After the birth of their daughter, Wendy, they returned to Reno where George found his true vocation, that of master carpenter. George built the family home and could point out many projects he had worked on during his long career in Reno and around the country. He worked for many years for the school district as a carpenter, was also proud of the work he did as a retired volunteer.

For fun, he and Betty loved going dancing. They also enjoyed playing board games with their many friends. George enjoyed gardening and working in his yard. The outdoors was always a big part of his life. He loved going canoeing and camping with his family. He was a fun guy.

George is survived by his loving wife, Betty Zang Waltenspiel, son George Weston Waltenspiel III (Wes), daughters Wendy Helgerson and Joan Gill along with their spouses Stuart and Steve, and grandchildren Weston, Molly, and Sam Gill, and John and George Helgerson. His family is blessed to have had him in their lives.

A celebration of George's life will be held on July 13, 2018 starting at 3 pm at the home of Steve and Joan Gill. All are welcome to come by and remember this wonderful man.
