Name: George Whelpley
Locaton: Anna Maria

Date of Death: February 26, 2014
Age at death: _


Obituary:

George J. Whelpley, of Anna Maria Island, FL, passed away peacefully in his home on Wednesday, February 26, 2014. George was born in Brooklyn, NY, before moving to Virginia at the age of 7. A graduate of George Mason University, he went on to teach elementary school in Northern Virginia for 25 years before retiring to Anna Maria. He is missed deeply by his two younger brothers, Michael (Regina) of Round Rock, TX, and John (Ruth) of Reston, VA, as well as his seven nephews and nieces (and their 10 kids), all of whom George loved as if they were his own children and grandchildren.

 

The most vivid of characters, he enjoyed investing, reading detective novels, dollar beers, cards, horse racing, and rooting on his beloved Tampa Bay Rays. He was ultimately a man of simple pleasures who needed only the sun on his face and the warmth of companionship to be happy. George had many talents, the greatest of which was his gift for friendship. To meet him was to become his pal for life. He was irrepressible, irascible, and impossible to replace.

 



Funeral Information:

A Private Memorial will be held at a later date. Brown & Sons Funeral Homes & Crematory 43rd Street Chapel, 604 43rd Street West, Bradenton, FL 34209 in charge of arrangements. In lieu of flowers, Memorial contributions may be made to Friends of Island Library, 5701 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach, FL 34217-1516.
