Obituary

George Brewbaker, Sr., 92, passed away November 24, 2019.  He was born November 5, 1927 in Akron to the late Charles and Anna Brewbaker. George worked for the Hoover Company retiring with 40 years of service.

 

As a young man, George was a musician and enjoyed playing the mandolin. He took great pride serving our country in the US Navy and was stationed in San Diego at the end of WWII. He lived his entire married life with Wilma in the city of Green, where they built their home and raised five children. As a lifetime member of the Greensburg Church of God, he served many capacities but was especially noted for teaching the adult Sunday school. He also wrote a book about his life, the “Comet Village” and had it published in 2013. George and his wife loved to have cookouts on Sunday afternoons with their children and grand children. It usually started with George and Wilma sitting on a swing on the front porch.  

 

In addition to his parents, George was preceded in death by his brother Charles.  He is survived by his loving wife of 72 years, Wilma; sons, George (Loretta), Ronald (Carole Jean) and Paul Brewbaker; daughters, Georgia (Samuel) Moses and Karen (Robert) Kerr; grandchildren, Stacie Jovanovic, Kelli Fisher, Roy Brewbaker, Jessica Jones, Justin Brewbaker, Tom and Jeremy Rathbun and Steve Moses; 11 great grandchildren; sister-in-law, Cora (Dean) Frederick; as well as many other loving family and friends.
