George B. Klotz Sr., 90, of Dunbar, passed away Saturday, Jan. 22, 2022, in WVU Uniontown Hospital, Uniontown, with his family by his side.
One of 10 children, he was born in Continental #3 on Aug. 24, 1931, to the late John Klotz and the late Katherine Cherpak Klotz.
He was the last member of his immediate family.
He was a member of St. Aloysius R. C. Church, Dunbar, where he served as an usher for 25 years.
George was a veteran of the U.S. Army serving February of 1950 to March of 1953.
He retired from PLCB after working for many years as a sales clerk of Wine & Spirits.
He went on to work for Burhans-Crouse Funeral Home where he spent nearly 30 years proudly serving the local community in their time of need. His presence there will be deeply missed.
