George was born on January 18, 1929. Passed away July 28 at 90 years of age. George served in the United States Army from 1950-1952. George was dedicated to his family. After the sudden death of his wife in 1969, he raised five children with an unconditional sacrifice of love. He worked at Farrell Ozmun and Kirk over 35 years, and served as General Manager in Milbank, SD. His love for the Catholic Church was demonstrated by his gift of faith. He was a skilled craftsman, and his yodeling was a reminder of his Swiss heritage.
