George D. Reimer

Joe Denoyer - January 30, 2022 6:41 pm

George D. Reimer, age 90, was born in rural Meade County, Kansas on October 7, 1931.   George passed away at his home in Meade, January 28, 2022.

George was the 4th child of five born to Klaas H. & Helena (Doerksen) Reimer.  As a young boy, he attended the McNaulty Country School.  After his education, he served his IW service in Topeka, Kansas.  After his service, he returned to Meade County and began his career as a farmer and stockman.

George, or as many people called him “Uncle George” was an uncle to everyone who was his friend. Uncle George had several passions during his lifetime.  He loved to farm his land as well as doing custom cutting during the fifties. Another one of his passions was vehicles & motorcycles. He would enter his car in many car shows and received some trophy’s. He also, had a BSA motorcycle, which he would give a ride on it to anyone who asked. Uncle George also loved family and friends as he was always helping others. Even as his vision was deteriorating he would give rides to the Chuckwagon for dinner for those who couldn’t find a way there. He was an avid collector of belt buckles, and toy tractors with equipment. For several years he would travel around the U.S. with friends to enjoy the various treasures this country offers. During the last several years George was unable to be out very often as his vision was mostly gone. During this time his nephew Greg and friend Amy Delissa would care for him, bring him meals and have wonderful conversations about his life’s adventures.

Uncle George will be deeply missed. He is survived by 2 brothers: Ben D. Reimer and John D. Reimer both of Meade, many nephews and nieces, great nephews & nieces, cousins and friends. He is preceded in death by his brother Henry D. Reimer and his sister Helen R. Bartel.

Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Friday, February 4, 2022, at Fidler-Orme-Bachman Mortuary, Meade.  Friends may call from 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home.  Interment will follow in the Graceland Cemetery, Meade.

In lieu of flowers, the extended family would welcome memorials to the Mennonite Disaster Services in care of the funeral home.

The family would like to thank everyone who helped George over the last few years. Without the help of Jon Bigler, PA, Greg Reimer, Amy Delissa, and everyone who visited with Uncle George.
