In Loving Memory of George (junior) workman Class of 1952

June 19, 2019 by George Workman (Register to contact)

Junior workman passed away peacefully in his sleep on April 30, 2019, at 10:15 a.m. He is greatly missed by his family, friends, and co-workers. He dedicated his life to his family, was funny, happy, loving, and devoted to any and all that knew him. He worked at FORD MOTOR COMPANY for 45 years in Michigan. He loved dancing, singing, playing cards, shootin' billiards, horse shoes, and crackin' jokes! He loved going up to the little kids and talking like Donald Duck! It made him happy to here them laugh and say do it again. His great grandchildren all called him GRANDPA DUCKS! He is now in hands of our LORD, JESUS CHRIST, THE HOLY SPIRIT, and GOD! REST IN PEACE!
