Mr. George E. Burg of Cedar Springs, Michigan, age 87, passed away in the comfort of his home, with loved ones all around, during the early morning hours of Thursday, December 6, 2018. George was born to Edgar and Elsa (Rector) Burg in Cedar Springs, on June 22, 1931, and had been a lifelong resident of the area. George had married the love of his life, Betty Lou (Hoekstra) prior to his enlistment in the military. He proudly and courageously served his flag and country in the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War. He was a loving and devoted husband, wonderful father, proud grandfather and great-grandfather, and dear friend. He loved to spend time in his garden, and he was always a great story teller—but, an even better listener. He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. George is survived by his two daughters, Deb (Mike) Coalter and Kathy (Bob) Woodward; grandchildren Jake (Michell) and Lindsey Woodward; and three great-grandchildren Ivan, Audun, and Allyie. He was preceded in death by his parents; and beloved wife Betty Lou Burg on January 10, 2012. Those wishing to offer an expression of sympathy are encouraged to make a memorial contribution to Hospice of Michigan, 989 Spaulding Avenue SE, Ada, MI 49301. George will be laid to rest with full military honors at Fort Custer National Cemetery, Augusta, MI.
