George and I grew up within 3 miles of each other in a rural community of Juniata County, Kellerville/Evendale, and were friends and schoolmates as kids. We spent time visiting and playing at each others homes since our parents were also friends.
We both graduated from East Juniata High School (class of 65) and were college roommates at Penn State. We also had fun working for The Pa. Dept. of Highways, during one summer break from college.
George was an avid hunter in high school and one visit to his home, just before deer season, stands out in my mind. George had just gotten a new Ithaca Deerslayer pump shotgun he kept in his bedroom. He was showing me how quickly he could unsling the gun from his shoulder to a shooting position. He asked me to try this and during the maneuver, I broke the ceiling light and fixture in the room. It made a terrible racket and we were both scared. George and I were both relieved when his parents were understanding and didn't say much about it, just told us to clean up the mess. George didn't tell me till afterward that he was told to not show me the gun unless they were present.
George was easy to talk to, liked discussions and often seemed to be analyzing things (must have been the psychologist in him). We had many good times together, he was a good friend and will be missed by everyone. I would like to express my sympathy to the family.

Renny we are going to miss you so much! Praising God we know you are in Heaven and we will see you again. You are the sweetest and kindest man I have ever know and you have spread your kindness and love to everyone. You treated me like a sister, not just a sister in law. You were always right by our side to love and support us. You were so kind to take our wedding pictures, we will cherish them forever. You walked in the cancer walk with Roger and all of us. You spent many weekends with us just visiting your mom and sitting with us around the fire in our back yard . Our children and grandchildren adore you..We so enjoyed your company and Thank God for those times. We love you !
Love & Prayers

My earliest memories of Uncle Ren involve him chasing family around the Lion’s Park with his camera. Some of the adults would squawk to get the camera away; they didn’t want their picture taken. As kids we’d stop but only for a quick snap. At the time I had no idea how quickly life passes by. Now, I am so grateful for all of those memories captured by Uncle Ren’s camera.

Even though we didn’t get to see him very often due to location, my kids and nephews had a special bond with Uncle Ren. When they were toddlers, they were very shy with unfamiliar adults, but that didn’t apply to Uncle Ren. When he showed up they would grab his finger and lead him around the house. Maybe it was because he looked like their Pop Pop, or maybe they had good instincts and just knew that he was a kind soul, but to the kids, he was the coolest guy ever. I will always cherish those moments.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone during this difficult time. We will all treasure our memories of Uncle Ren. May he rest in peace.

With love,
Nicole (Renno) Bassler

George, Linda, Erik and Kaelyn had lived across the street from us on Rosemarie Way Hatfield many years ago. We have such fond memories.
I must agree with George's brother Roger, he was always a kind caring soul who always had compassion for others, a positive can-do attitude and never seemed to get upset or angry.
I didn't know George had a pilots license or jumped out of an airplane, although I'm not surprised it makes me smile as well. He loved to attend Willow Grove Air Shows and would take Erik and our son Matt.
Baseball would tie us together not only years ago when Erik and Matt were much younger, but also recently when George would attend Erik and Matt's "Tiny Cups" games. It was always good to see and speak with George in the summertime.
He was a very accomplished photographer, some of the most cherished photo's we have are the one's George had taken when Matt was younger and playing little league baseball. I have one very special photo that George had taken after a game, it is one of Matt (about 11) and myself on one knee at home plate. I have it hanging in my home office to this day. I also think of George when I see it because he just out of the blue handed it to me one day, I'll never forget his kindness and generosity for what would become a very cherished photo.
Rest in peace George.
Our sincere condolences to Linda, Erik and Kaelyn.

Jim, ...... Sue, Matt, Loren and Emily McAuliff

To my brother George “Renny”...

Although there were 12 years between us in age, over the past 10-15 years, we had the opportunity to really get to know each other and create wonderful memories. Renny was a selfless, quiet, caring soul, who always had compassion for others. He provided round the clock, compassionate care for Mom after Dad passed away. Renny was always selfless. When I would ask him how he was doing, he always turned the conversation to how “I” was doing. He looked forward to spending time with me, even if it was a two hour car drive to one of my doctor appointments. He was interested in me and Brenda’s life and my children’s lives, asking about our grandkids and spending time with them.

I truly never saw Renny upset or angry. He was always even tempered. I always looked up to him, how he persevered and graduated college from Penn State and how he loved, cared for, and provided for his family! I admire his surprisingly, brave and adventurous side, having his pilot license and jumping out of an airplane, which has always and will continue to give me a smile!!

Most recently, Renny reminisced about childhood memories which brought lots of laughs. This past week has been very trying, filled with sadness over missing him, but I have faith that I will see Renny again in heaven! I’ll miss our talks and family time. We all miss you! Until we meet again...

Love,
Roger
