He graduated from Verona High School in 1957 and successfully completed the auto mechanic program at Madison College. George also completed many electronic courses through MATC in Watertown. He had a keen talent for being able to build or repair almost anything.

George was united in marriage to Darlene Kopfer on Aug. 11, 1962. During George’s 15-year battle with Parkinson’s disease, Darlene and George’s love and devotion was evident in the way that they had cared for each other. George had a strong faith and was a member of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church where he ushered and served on the board of elders. He was employed by Brandt/De La Rue for 40 years as a repairman, drill press operator, assembler and teacher to field technicians. George also owned and operated George’s Clock Repair for 28 years.

He had been involved as a Jaycee, was a pitcher for Brandt’s softball team and was a member of the WI Lutheran dartball team for 30 years. In addition, George had also been a member of the Menomonee Valley Chapter 47 of the National Watch and Clock Association.

George is survived by his wife Darlene and children, Sue Rendon of Menomonee Falls, Kathleen (Ron) Miller of Watertown. George is further survived by his grandchildren, Amanda and Daniel Rendon, Kaitlin, Monica and Kendra Miller, and siblings Mary Hansen and Bob Lemberger.
