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.

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.
