John Marlowe George “Mudder,” husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend to so many, peacefully passed away Feb. 24, 2016 in Beaver, Utah. He was born Sept. 20, 1948 in Beaver, Utah to John Hess George and Ada Deone Patterson George.

Marlowe attended grade school and graduated from Beaver High School with the Class of 1967.

He married his high school “Sweetheart” Nancy Ann Griffiths on Aug. 3, 1968. They were blessed with two children: Robert Scott and Jodi Dee.

Marlowe became the man of the house at age 8 when his father lost his life in a mining accident at Kennecott Copper Mine. He went to work at age 8 cutting posts, farming, and drilling pipe to help out his family. He made many good friends that became friends for life.

At age 16 he had saved enough money to buy a new car. It was a Bubble Gum Blue 1967 Dodge Charger R/T. The speedometer read 140 miles per hour, and he was known to test it many times. He loved to outrun the Highway Patrol.

It’s hard to believe his favorite pastime for the last 20 years has been going for a ride at 10 miles per hour. He loved the “B” Mountain, hunting, fishing and the horse races. He was the coach for the Milne Little League team and loved working with those boys. He worked for the Utah Department of Transportation for 27 years as a supervisor over the engineering crew, he retired in 2012.

He loved his children and grandchildren and had a special relationship with them. He made each one feel like his “favorite.”

He had a huge heart and was charitable with those who needed a hand up. He was a man of integrity and told it “the way it was.” If you were a friend to “Mudder,” you were a friend for life. He was totally devoted to his family.

Marlowe is survived by his wife, Nancy; son, Robert Scott George of Beaver, Utah; and his daughter, Jodi Dee (Walker) Corry of Cedar City, Utah. He has four grandchildren: Dustin, Tyler, Makayli and Clay. His siblings are Marcia Gae (Kenyon) Clark of South Jordan and Rusty Allen George of Kanosh.

He is preceded in death by his parents and his brother Patrick Jon George.

Funeral services were Feb. 27, 2016 at 1 p.m. at the Beaver 3rd Ward LDS Chapel (220 N. Main St., Beaver, Utah). A viewing was held before services at the church. Interment was in the Mountain View Cemetery under the direction of Southern Utah Mortuary. Online condolences can be made at www.sumortuary.com.
