George graduated from Mars High School and earned a Bachelor’s degree from Slippery Rock University and a Master’s degree from Indiana University of PA. He began his teaching career in Chicora and Karns City, PA. He then moved to Maryland and began his life-long career as an educator for Prince George’s County Public Schools, serving briefly as a guidance counselor before assuming a position as an Administrator in Human Resources.
George loved his family. He was very proud of his children, and especially loved all his times with his grandchildren-playing games, canoeing, going to the beach and the boardwalk and enjoying vacations together. He was a sports enthusiast, both as a spectator and a participant. He enjoyed playing tennis for many years. Then for many more years, he was passionate about skiing and spent part of every winter on the slopes in the western U.S. After his move to Ocean Pines, he enjoyed fine tuning his golf game. His desire to see and experience new and different countries and cultures led to over 30 years of traveling to explore the world. George had a very good life.
Interment of his ashes will be held at a later date in Mars, PA. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to Coastal Hospice, P.O. Box 1733, Salisbury, MD 21802-1733 or online at their website coastalhospice.org. Condolences are available at www.mcdonald-aeberli.com.
