George (Skip) Deihm fell asleep in death at the age of 71, on December 13, 2020. He will be dearly missed by his wife Kathryn (Kitty) of 48 years, his son Roger and wife Christy, and son Ross and wife Karen. Also surviving are his brother Larry, his sister Cindy, his sister-in-law Nancy and husband Morgan, and his in-laws, Bill and Lucy, in addition to numerous nieces and nephews. He was the son of the late Lola and George Deihm Sr. George is also survived by his many spiritual brothers and sisters. For the last 30 years of his life he was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. He served as an elder in the Boyertown Congregation. George firmly believed, as the Bible states, that death is the absence of life (Eccl 9:5). Thus, his hope was what Jesus said, that there would be a return to life in the future, a resurrection to a paradise earth (John 5:28, 29). George graduated from Pottstown High School, and was as an Eagle Scout. He also graduated from Lock Haven University with a degree in education. He taught math at East Norriton Jr. High for one year, before following his love of computers. He started as a computer operator at National Rolling Mills, moving on to being a programmer at Extracorporal. He then spent 17 years at Uniform Tubes before becoming a consultant with JGI, Uniqema, and Croda. Services will be held via Video Conferencing at the family’s discretion.
