Obituary

SIDNEY, MAINE
John Scott George - age 68, passed away peacefully on June 3, 2020 at his home in the embrace of loving family after a valiant battle with cancer. Born in Oceanside, NY on January 22, 1952, he was the son of the late Charles George and Christina (Hanson) George. John was the second of six children and was raised in a proud, hardworking, Italian Catholic family. His childhood summers were spent visiting family in Maine and his love for the state inspired him to move to Maine permanently in 1973.
Not long after he arrived, he met his future wife, Gail M. Philbrick. They married in 1976, and bought their first home on the Densmore Road in Sidney, later moving to the Lyons Road, where together they raised four daughters: Erica, Angela, Alison, and Elaina. John often worked several jobs at once while raising his family and pursuing his college degrees. He always encouraged and inspired others to be their best selves by valuing education, hard work, and by being an example and mentor to others. All those who encountered John in life found him to be a rare man of integrity, honor, conviction, kindness, and compassion.
As a spiritual man and devout Catholic, John gave his heart, soul, and time to the church, lending his musical talents to programs at St. Theresa’s in Oakland and Notre Dame in Waterville. He was a self-taught, talented guitarist and vocalist, loved attending concerts, watching Austin City Limits (and playing along), and singing in the Colby College Collegium; music was part of his soul. John was well-known for his charitable spirit, always finding new ways to serve his community, and always putting the love of family as his top priority.
John’s favorite leisure activities included playing golf, working on cars, doing house repairs and yard work, gardening, coaching his daughters’ sports teams when they were growing up, listening to the blues and playing guitar, annual family vacations at the lake, watching the Patriots, Redskins, and Red Sox games, and spending time visiting his New York brothers and sisters, and his family and friends here in Maine. He also enjoyed helping all his family members with their current building projects--everyone always appreciated the warm companionship and sound advice John gave along with generous amounts of his time.
While balancing family and full-time work, John proudly earned his Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) from University of Maine in 1986 and his Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from Thomas College in 1997. He was repeatedly recognized for his many years of outstanding service as an accountant, financial auditor, and consultant for CMP, Maine Yankee, Iberdrola, and Avangrid. After retiring in 2018, he volunteered his time with AARP assisting the elderly with their taxes. He served many years on the Trademark Credit Union Board of Directors and also served over 40 years for the Town of Sidney in the roles of Selectman, Member of the Planning Committee, and Chairman of the Budget Committee. In town, John was most known to other residents by his outgoing attitude at the annual Town Meeting.
John is survived by his wife of 44 years, Gail M. (Philbrick) George; four daughters: Erica Haywood and her husband Eric Haywood, Angela Graf and her husband Richard Graf, Alison Rundlett and her husband Scott Rundlett, and Elaina George; five siblings: Charles George and his wife Paulette George, Eric George, Monica Williams, Margaret Sherra and Jimmy George; six grandchildren: Gavin Paddack, Emma Haywood, Aiden Graf, Alexander Gaudet, and Natalie and Cooper Rundlett; and dozens of nieces, nephews and cousins, as well as his brothers and sisters-in law, each of whom he dearly loved.
We will be celebrating John’s life in several ways: a funeral Mass to be held at Notre Dame Church, Waterville; burial with committal prayers will take place in Robert Earl Philbrick Cemetery, Sidney; and a Celebration of Life gathering will be planned for the near future. If you are interested in details for any of these events, please email ServicesForJohn@gmail.com . As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions may be sent to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Plummer Funeral Home, 16 Pleasant St., Augusta, ME.

To Gail , the family and John's family: Brenda and I send you our heartfelt sympathy. May you find peace and serenity at this time. I met John 20 years ago playing in the masses at St. Theresa's, Sacred Heart then at Notre Dame. He became a great friend. He was a smart, kindhearted, patient listener, compassionate, always ready to help in anyway possible. He offered positive solutions whenever needed. Smile, he always smiled..... I will, we will always love John and all the memories of knowing this wonderful man. Yet, his love for Gail and their family was always his top priority, I recalled. I am most grateful for sharing his friendship. I will always pray for him . May he be with Jesus in Heaven. Godspeed mi amici.

Thank you, Ramon. Dad loved you very much and spoke so highly of you. He cherished your friendship very much. I'm so glad you were able to reconnect with Eric, my husband, when we brought Dad to church. Thank you so much for sharing your memories and for being such a good friend to my father. Peace be with you!!

To Gail and all of John's family, Brad and I send our deepest sympathy. John was a good friend; always generous with his time, his "know how", his advise, (and his truck)! We were together with John in our church choir at Notre Dame Parish and the Colby Kennebec Choral choir. When I played with John at church, he was the rock that I depended on. John will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him. A kind, generous, loving person.

To Gail and family, we are so sorry for your loss. John was a kind and giving man and a good friend. We only met when St. Theresa's Church closed and he came to join our Music Ministry here at Notre Dame. John was such a valuable guitarist and cantor in our group.
We will miss him every time we play and we will feel his presence next to us.
Praying for God's blessings on your family.

Gail and family: I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I served with John on several town boards throughout the years. John was a hard worker, a wealth of knowledge and he truly cared about Sidney and its people.

John was a exemplary father and grandfather. He was always willing to lend a helping hand and more often then not ended up teaching you something useful in the process. I will truly miss our summer golf outings and family vacations on the lake. John's legacy will live on through the family and friends he affected.
