George J. Milbrandt, formerly of Avon Lake, passed away on Aug. 26, 2013 with Patricia, his beloved wife of 49 years, by his side.
He was born Jan. 6, 1938, in Cleveland. They moved to North Fort Myers, FL in 2002.
He is survived by daughter, Elizabeth Candella (Joseph) and son George Milbrandt, Jr. (Vera), grandchildren Joseph Candella, Christina Candella, Trevor Milbrandt, and Holly Milbrandt. He is also survived by one sister, Josephine Grospitch and one brother, James Milbrandt.
George was a big man, both in stature and in character. He was a proud Ohio State graduate, a retired lieutenant commander of the U.S. Coast Guard, an engineer, and as he would say "just a farmer."
In his retirement years he dedicated his time to Wake Up America, a charitable organization that feeds the hungry.
There will be a celebration of life ceremony at 2 p.m. on Sept. 21 at Busch Funeral Home, 32000 Detroit Road, Avon, OH.
Memorial contributions may be made to Wake Up America, Attn: Larry Dow, 19810 Diamond Hill, N. Ft. Myers, FL 33903 or Hope Hospice, 9470 Healthpark Circle, Ft. Myers, FL 33908 in memory of George.
