George A. Lange

George Lange - Greece, NY - Rochester Cremation

George Aloysius Lange, 89, of Greece, NY, surrounded by his family at home went peacefully to be with his Lord Jesus on April 5, 2019. George was born in Heistern, East Prussia on May 17,1929 to the late Julius & Erna Lange. He is survived by his loving wife Rosa of 64 years; children and spouses Gerhard (Donna) Lange, Sandra Lanni, Ralph Lange, Steven (Heather) Lange; five grandchildren Jonathan (Annie) Lange, Stephanie, Christine, Nicholas, and Caleb; four great grandchildren Fate, Brayden, Hunter, and Finnian; sister Angelika Liepert, brother Clemens (Ava) Lange, sister-in-law Edwina Lange, brother-in-law August Rebhan. He was predeceased by brother Rudolf Lange, sister Christel Rebhan, and brother-in-law Alban Liepert.

George immigrated with his brother and sister to the United States in 1952. There he served in the US Army for 2 years. While in the Army, George married Rosa in 1954 and started a family. George mastered the Tool and Die trade where he worked for Alliance Tool Corporation for over 30 years, eventually retiring from Acro Industries. His character was marked by a strong work ethic, attention to detail, commitment, and love of family. He loved playing golf, skiing, and hanging out at the cabin with his family. George served as a Trustee for many years as a faithful servant at his church. He was a fantastic husband, father, Opa, and friend to many and will surely be missed.

A Celebration of His Life will begin at 11:00 A.M. on Saturday April 13 at The Venue (692 Paul Road, Rochester, NY 14624) across from The Fathers House church. Gifts in his memory may be directed to Samaritan’s Purse.

    Our dear dear friend George will be truly missed. Rick loved him and they got along so well. They had similar personalities. He got very emotional when I told him George went to be with the Lord. Our love and hugs to Rosa and the rest of the family.

    George was the essence of what a Christian man should be as described in the Bible. He was a sweet man whom I was so proud to call my friend. The world lost a great man, which was Heaven’s gain. Hugs to Rosa and the Lange family.

    Very thankful that we were all able to spend some time with George and the whole family during the summer of 2008. Only good memories of a great man who is now with the lord.
    All the best,
    Family Erwin Sauter
