George L. Willson

June 17, 1932 ~ February 25, 2014

George L. Willson, 81, of Medfield, MA, passed away on Tuesday, February 25, 2014, at Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, RI, after a brief illness. George was born in Pittsburgh, PA on June 17, 1932, to the late Clinton L. and Beatrice M. Willson. He graduated from Swissvale High School in 1950 and attended Bethany College for two years, before enlisting in the U.S. Army and serving as a Russian linguist. After leaving the Army, he completed his studies at the University of Pittsburgh, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. George worked as a computer analyst and programmer for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and for E-Systems Inc. until he retired in 1987. He served as the treasurer of the Arlington Presbyterian Church in Arlington, VA for many years, before living in New Wilmington, PA, Colorado Springs, CO, Wenatchee, WA, and Medfield, MA. He was active at the United Church of Christ in Medfield, and at the Medfield Council on Aging. George loved to travel, and enjoyed dancing, trains and stamp collecting.

George is survived by his son, Allan Willson and daughter-in-law, Heidi of Hope, RI; and son, Donald Willson of Friday Harbor, WA. He is also survived by granddaughters, Sula, Sophie and Elizabeth; grandsons, Ethan and Noah; and nephews, Clinton and Ross Willson. George was preceded in death by his long-time companion, Margherita DiNardi; and his beloved brother, Donald.

George was a kind-hearted man with a warm and generous spirit. His gentle goodness brought out the kindness in those who met him, and his playfulness coaxed many smiles. He will be remembered as a devoted and loving son, father, grandfather and friend.

A Memorial Service will be held at United Church of Christ in Medfield, MA, on Saturday, April 12, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. The family requests donations in his memory be sent in George’s name to World Vision, P.O. Box 9716, Federal Way, WA 98063-9716.
