Kerry Alan George

September 9, 1950 – January 26, 2018

Owensburg - Kerry Alan George, 67, went home to be reunited with his Lord on January 26, 2018, after a long battle with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.  Kerry was known for his love of family and his dedication to God and his church.

Kerry was born to Robert Dean and Marilyn Jeanette (Armstrong) George on September 9, 1950 and was raised in Owensburg, IN.  He graduated from Eastern Greene High School and then spent more than 30 years working for the Rogers Group of Bedford and was a member of the Local #741 Laborers and Hod Carriers Union.  He attended the Owensburg Baptist Church where he spent many years as a Sunday School teacher, deacon, and moderator where he often started service with the phrase, “God is good all the time.”

Kerry was blessed with a loving family.  He married the love of his life, Coleen Boler, on December 2, 1973.  Together they created a happy home in which they raised three children whom made him so very proud.  He also enjoyed being a “Papaw” to his grandchildren and loved watching them at their school performances and cheering them on during their sporting adventures.

In his free time, Kerry enjoyed golfing, fishing, and hunting.  He never sat idle and was always helping other people.

Kerry is dearly missed by his loved ones.  They take comfort in knowing that he is in Heaven and that his body has been restored.  He is survived by his wife, Coleen; children Valerie (Patrick) Ault of Bloomington, Timothy (Dr. Julie Shaff) George of Bloomfield, Heather (Zach) Myers of Greenwood; grandchildren Zoie and Maddox Ault, Addison George, Thomas and Katherine Myers, and Lauren and Owen Shaff.  Kerry is also survived by his dear mother, Marilyn George of Owensburg, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.    

He was preceded in death by his father Robert “Bob” George, and siblings Kristy Crohn and Kirby George, and nephew Devin George.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, January 30th at Day & Carter Mortuary in Bedford, with Kenny Adams and Jay Collins officiating.  Kerry will be laid to rest in the Owensburg Cemetery in Owensburg, IN.

Family and friends may call at the funeral home on Monday, January 29th from 3 to 8 p.m. and Tuesday, January 30th from 10:00 am until the hour of service time.  Memorial contributions can be made to the Owensburg Baptist Church.
