George E. McDonald
December 31, 1957 ‒ April 26, 2019
George E. McDonald, 61, of Delaware passed away Friday, April 26, 2019 at his residence.
He was born December 31, 1957, the son of the late Raymond & Eva (Patterson) McDonald. George graduated from Delaware Hayes High School in 1976. He worked for Sika manufacturing in Marion for 27 years as a production manager.
George is survived by his loving wife of 31 years Debra “Debbie” (Basham); sons Mike (Chenoa) Inglish, Ian (Katlyn) McDonald; daughters Karmen (Kyle) Litteral, Sarah (Chris) Kaiser; grandkids Makala, Zoee, Jack, and one on the way; sister Mary Lou (Bob) Gnade; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Norman and Chuck McDonald, and sister Norma Buck.
George was very eclectic when it came to his hobbies, and past times. He enjoyed fishing, guitar playing, and the occasional alcoholic beverage. He was also a collector of many things including tools, records, musical instruments, the more interesting or unique, the better. George’s greatest accomplishment in life was the family he and his wife made together. They will remember him as the funny, stubborn, and sometimes the goofball that he was.
The family will receive friends from 4pm- 6pm Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at the Snyder- Rodman Funeral Center, 101 Valleyside (Formerly 1510 West William), Delaware, Ohio 43015. Services will take place immediately following the visitation.
