George was born in Chicago. He attended Glenview School for Boys and graduated from Fullerton High School. George served in the Army Air Corps during World War II as a member of the 464th Bomber Squadron.
After the war, he married Lucile and started his sales career. George was the owner of G.R. Adams and Associates as an Electrical Manufacturers’ representative. George never really retired. He was always interested in the day-to-day business and the treasured friendships he made throughout his life.
His passion and hobbies were golf, all Wisconsin team Sports, and of course "General Hospital." He paid particular attention to Falls Girls Fastpitch— "Go Falls!" He was a loyal supporter of his children’s, grandchildren’s and great-grandchildren’s sporting activities.
Remembered for his quick wit and sense of humor, George was always involved in some type of music, from playing the coronet, his harmonica, singing in the church choir or with anyone who wanted to harmonize. His tenor voice is now part of the Angels’ choir.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Eric Weber and Sandy, and the caregivers at Brookfield Regency and AngelsGrace Hospice for their loving care.
