OBITUARY - RONALD LEE "TUFFY" GEORGE

Ronald Lee "Tuffy" GEORGE was born March 25, 1953 to Wayne and JoAnn (HANKS) GEORGE at the Ringgold County Hospital in Mt. Ayr, Iowa and left his family on June 7, 2010 at his home in Glenrock, Wyoming at the age of 57. Tuffy attended and graduated from Grand Valley School in 1971.

Tuffy grew up in Kellerton, Iowa and in 1971 he married Okie ADAMS. To this union, two daughters were born, JoAnn (GEORGE) LEWIS and Veronica GEORGE both of Glidden, Iowa. They later divorced. In 1986 he married Elizabeth Joann FAGAN. To this union two sons were born, James Paul and Jacob Lee, both of the family home in Glenrock, Wyoming.

Tuffy worked at several jobs in Iowa before coming to Wyoming where he tried the oilfield but settled on home construction. He had been a loyal employee of Joe PHIPPS for 26 years! Tuffy was a hard working man and very meticulous about his work.

Tuffy loved throwing darts with his family and friends and won several tournaments. He had just spent time in Las Vegas throwing darts with his son James and wife Jo. He also loved NASCAR, cheering on Clint BOWER in Car #33. He loved the mountains, hunting and camping and spending time with his friends who were his family he found along the way. He spent his life teaching his children everything he knew.

He is survived by his wife and children, parents of Kellerton, IA, brother, Mike GEORGE (Karey) and sister Patty (Mike) GROSE, both of Glenrock. Also surviving are five grandchildren, one nephew, three nieces and many cousins. He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Cora CRAWFORD, whom he loved very much, of Glenrock, his step-father, Joe CRAWFORD, whom he loved very much, his Auntie Bonnie (GEORGE) BROWN of Belleview, NE and his many friends.
