George A. Cable, 77, of Dawson, passed away Wednesday evening, Nov. 24, 2021, in Westmoreland Manor, Hempfield Township.
George was born March 3, 1944, in Connellsville, a son of the late Alfred Cable and Garnet (Lancaster) Cable Neff.
He married Carol A. (Baker) Cable on Dec. 10, 1966.
George was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He was employed for many years at US Steel's Duquesne Works and served in the Army Reserves. He retired from the McCreary Tire Factory in Indiana and was a faithful member of the Tyrone Presbyterian Church in Lower Tyrone Township.
A 1966 graduate of Dunbar High School, he loved to spend hours out at his favorite fishing hole at Virgin Run Lake, where he made many friends. He truly loved spending time with his grandchildren. George was a true sportsman, who enjoyed hunting turkey and deer. One of his greatest joys was passing the love of hunting and fishing on to his sons and grandchildren. George also loved spending time at the local coffee shop, gathering the newest gossip from around town!
George "Pap" was loved by his family and was a true friend to many. He will be sadly missed by his loving family; his wife of 54 years, Carol A. (Baker) Cable; his son, George "Steven" Cable and his wife Rita of Dawson; his daughter-in- Law, Dyan (Kreller) Cable of Scottdale; and his grandchildren, George Cable, Nicole Cable, and Christine Cable.
