Dear brother of Joseph Wetzel, Anna Tierney, Ellen Estock and the late John Wetzel. George was an Air Force Veteran and a long time employee of Home Depot of Cherry Hill, NJ.
George was often described as the strong and silent type. He was a one of a kind. His family meant everything to him, especially his granddaughter Bella, who was the light of his life.George started out working in a garage when he was 16. Most of his years were spent as a mechanic, working on cars, trucks, and tools. He was the kind of guy who fix anything.His interests, other than puttering with something in need of repair, were strumming his guitar to write a song and listening to old-time country music. He was a big fan of NASCAR and the New England Patriots. He liked tough-guy movies, especially Westerns. Cowboy George, with his Stetson hat and cowboy boots will be greatly missed.
