DAVID ROBERT GEORGE, JR.
NOVEMBER 7, 1955 to DECEMBER 3, 2017

David, or Dave as everyone called him was born in Harrisburg PA. Born to parents David Robert George, Sr and Betty Jane George (Weishner). He was the second oldest child. Gail Lorraine Johnson (George) being older with sisters Cynthia Marie George (Anderson) and TraciLee George (Honomichael). Parents Dave and Betty are deceased.

They resided in PA until moving to Utah in 1970. He graduated from South High School in 1976. After graduation he joined the Army. He was with The Army Rangers and was a paratrooper. He loved it! The most fun he ever had he would say! Just before he went in the Army he married Louzanne Murray. They had three children. David Robert George III, Laura and Lisa.

He later divorced and he married Janet Therisa Mannix on June 16, 1984. They had one child Rachelle Therisa George who was born May 1982. Rachelle had three children Autumn Ranae, Kalaje Janet Teresa and Matthew Tye Lowder.

Dave was a very accomplished carpenter. He and his dad built many cabins and mountain homes in Cottonwood Canyon Utah, Park City Utah and Nevada. It was just Dave and his dad. The homes were known for the quality of work they did and the homes still are occupied in the mountains. Dave was so very proud of them.

Dave moved to Sumter, SC. He and his dad went there to help rebuild after hurricane Hugo. Janet worked with him. As Dave and I drove through Sumter he pointed out many of his projects and told me stories of how they were built. He then worked at Shaw Air Force Base as a maintenance man. He worked with his Dad again and loved it.
Dave worked until he was no longer able and in the spring of 2017 he was diagnosed with cancer. He fought it courageously but succumbed on December 3, 2017. He passed at his residence in his favorite chair.

Dave will be remembered for his contagious laugh. He could always make someone feel better. He was a friend to everyone he met. Never without his ballcap and moustache he was famous in the family for his Low Country Boils. When he took his last breath he walked away from his mortal body without falling and without pain into the waiting arms of his mother and father. The day was beautiful. 70 degrees, and light breeze with clear sky and Fall golden leaves. A wonderful day to take a trip home to Jesus.

A memorial service will be held at the residence of his wife Janet, 4200 Granada Drive, Lot 56, Sumter, SC 29154, on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at 3:00 pm with military honors.
