George Glenn Nutting
May 14, 1928 - February 10, 2023
George Nutting, beloved father and friend to everyone he met, died on February 10, 2023. He was 94 years old. George was born on May 14, 1928 in McKeesport, Pennsylvania and graduated from Charleroi-Fallowfield High School in 1946. Shortly thereafter he enlisted in the Military as a paratrooper with the 101 st Airborne Division. While he never saw combat, his training prepared him for marriage when he returned home.
George married Myriam Adela Gonzalez in 1947, and they celebrated 65 years of wedded bliss before his beloved wife died in 2013.
George was a kind, non-judgmental man, who loved to tell stories about growing up in Pennsylvania, owning a Texaco gas-station, and why his nickname was Pooch, (he was always
bringing home stray dogs!).
He spent his first career as a long-haul truck driver, often garnering awards for most miles driven in a year. During his many hours of driving, he would often pen poems to Myriam and
their four children.
After raising the kids in Detroit, Michigan, George and Myriam retired to Southern California where boredom led to his second career as assistant manager and then co-manager (with Myriam) of Lynnwood Mobile Estates, in El Cajon, California. His love for the road never left him, and he and
Myriam enjoyed many trips in their motor home visiting family and friends and the few states he missed during his truck driving days. After his second retirement at age 86, he spent most of his time taking his Yorkshire Terrier, Mia for walks and visiting with tenants. He lived for the past 2 1/2 years at Lo-Har Senior Living in El Cajon, CA where the staff provided excellent and loving care.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Sarah Nutting, his sisters, Grace Gillon and Wilma Hickman, as well as Myriam and their pet Yorkies both named Mia! He is survived by two sons, Francis (Kathy) in Colorado, Glenn (Patti) in California, two daughters, Vanessa in Michigan and Georgette (James) in Pennsylvania, nine grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, many
nieces and nephews, and nine grand-dogs. A private internment is planned for April 22, 2023.
