George William Kuhl
January 31, 1925 - November 28, 2016
Kuhl, George William – Passed away peacefully, with family at his side in Owen Sound, on Monday November 28, 2016 in his 92nd year. Son of the late Julius and Mary Kuhl. George is now reunited with his dear wife of 68 years, Sylvia, who predeceased him in December of 2015. Loving father of Linda Mae (Jim) Hamill of Meaford, Lloyd (Catherine) Kuhl of Keady, and Irma Kuhl (Gamble) (Al Speirs) of Chatsworth. Also survived by eight grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren and three sisters-in-law Shirley Lang, Alma Lang, and Cathy Kuhl, all of Desboro. Predeceased by his siblings Harold (Alvena), Otto (Luella), Viola (Ernie) Tompkins, Ernie (Gertrude) Kuhl, Alvin (Fran), Mary (Gordon) Garvie, Gordon Kuhl, brother-in-laws Gordon (Pearl), Armond and Hilton Lang and by two great grand-children.
George was born and raised in Sullivan Township. He farmed for over 65 years; raising beef and dairy cattle. He was extremely active in his church and community, including serving as reeve and member of North Grey/Sauble Conservation Authority. George was lovingly involved in the lives of his children, playing and coaching minor hockey and ball. As soon as the children were old enough to drive the tractor (7yrs) he trained them to compete alongside himself at the International Plowing Match. George enjoyed music and loved to dance with his dearest Sylvia, and entertain on the banjo or guitar. During quieter times, he was an avid reader and always kept himself well-informed, not to mention doing research on his fondness for collecting antiques. This hobby would often see him and his friend Stewart Weaver scour the US and Canada looking for the next collectible, or something to tinker with when they got home. George enjoyed the outdoors and would frequently go hunting for deer, coyotes or an occasional wolf. In later years he was blessed with many grandchildren and great grandchildren. His sense of humour endeared him as a devoted grandfather. He will be dearly missed!
