Liberty - 02/03/1926 - 06/07/2019
Beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend. George passed peacefully surrounded by loved ones and friends at the Sussman House in Rockport, Maine. He was a life-long resident of Liberty, Maine. George attended schools in Liberty and graduated from high school in 1944. George served in the U.S. Army at the time of the Korean conflict. He was a flight mechanic on planes that flew the border during the occupation of Germany. George was the owner and operator of Worthing's Exxon in Liberty, where he provided auto mechanic services, radio and TV repairs, grocery and gasoline sales. He served on many committees for the Town of Liberty and was a school board member for MSAD 3 for several years. In retirement, he volunteered at the Liberty Historical Society, restored and drove antique autos and maintained a productive garden dressed with hundreds of gladioli. George was married to Carlene Smith of Princeton, Maine from 1949 until her passing in 1995. They had one daughter, Dawn. In 1997 George married Juanita Miller Peavey, gaining a new family and 22 more years of happy married life. George is survived by his wife, Juanita; his daughter, Dawn Boden; his son-in-law, John Boden; his step-daughters Donna Stanley and Diane Benner; his step son-in-law, David Benner; 6 grandchildren; 7 great grand children and several nieces and nephews. At George's request there will be no funeral service and there will be a private burial.

Uncle George was a very kind and generous person to everyone who meet him!! Best of all he was a Christen person to everyone!!! I will always remember Uncle George picking us all after our terriable car accident on our return trip back to Conn., my 9 th birthday.We stayed at Uncle George's house until we were pick up by Uncle Raymond. Also, the 4 th of July picnics at Uncle George's. May he rest in peace with Jesus!!! Love, Kent T. Smith Jr.

George was such a wonderful human being. When Carlene would tell her niece Lorraine and I we couldn’t do something or go somewhere, George would take us aside and give us quiet permission. He and my Mother (Barbara Creasey) were life long friends along with all Moms brothers and sister. He was non-judge mental, kind, honest, supportive, and smart. God broke the mold after he created George. Rest In Peace.
