Obituary

George Boyd Hadesty was born in Pottsville, Pennsylvania in 1931.  He was married to Virginia (nee Fultz) for 58 years.  Sharing a true love for each other they enjoyed many wonderful adventures including trips in their motor home and visits to Destin beach.  George had four children, David (Sandy), Suzanne (Scott), George Jr. and Holly.  He was an involved father always monitoring electricity usage and able to fix most items around the house. He cared deeply for his wife and children and adored his grandchildren Sara, Allison, Alexis and Hunter and his great grandchildren Oliver and Emery.

Surprisingly by todays standards, George worked at General Electric for 39 years as an instrumentation engineer.  He would come home for lunch almost every day.  He also served in the Air Force. 

At his happiest, you could find him working on a car with a beer in hand.  He was a fan of Yuengling before it was cool and loved to wash down large pretzels with one.  In later years, as health problems arose, he switched to non alcoholic beer so he could still participate in happy hour.  He thought of the hardware store as a toy store, enjoyed fire outs, and was a proponent of backing into parking spaces.

He attended Penn State University, as did his sister Ann Shaffer.

Despite recent events he remained a fan of the Reds, Bengals and Penn State football.  He was a proud member of the Youghiogheny Yahoos, Costa Killers, Tri-State Traveliers and many bridge and poker clubs.  He was a caring person who could be counted on to help neighbors and friends.  A man of few words, he had a calm approach to life (perhaps facilitated by his love of Yuengling) and seemed to prefer to demonstrate his feelings through actions.  Visiting friends who were in need of help. 

He was an excellent father and very loving husband who will be missed dearly.
