Matt P. George

April 22, 1955 — May 17, 2019

Mathias Paul “Matt” George, the son of Paul and Marilyn (Peck) George, was born in Cherokee, Iowa, on April 22, 1955. He grew up on a farm near Aurelia, Iowa, and graduated from Aurelia High School in 1973.

 Matt was always drawn to anything with an engine, including big trucks, heavy equipment and motorcycles. For several years he owned and operated Blue Moon Trucking and continued hauling for various companies, both long distance and local. He loved Harley Davidsons, fixing up old cars, pick-ups and houses, and going to car shows. Matt enjoyed living in the country and was always more than willing to help a neighbor and friend with his cows and calves. He took pride in caring for his acreage and spending time with family and friends.

 Matt passed away from lung cancer on Friday, May 17, 2019, at the age of 64. He was preceded in death by his father, Paul A. George in 1995; his grandparents; his step-father, John M. Storbeck in 2016; cousins, David and Jon Roberts, Joanne Benson, Dennis Mueller, Pat Cronin and several aunts and uncles.

 Survivors include his mother, Marilyn Storbeck of Aurelia; his siblings, Debra George of Kearney, MO, Mary Lynn (Craig) DeDecker of Norwalk, IA, and Terri George of Oak Park, IL; his nephew, Brian (Missy) DeDecker, and niece, Jenna (Christian) Huntley; great-niece, Vera Ruth Huntley; an aunt and uncle, La Von (Bob) Roberts; step-brothers, Jerry (Luanne) Storbeck and John D.
