Memories Timeline


  1. Your father was truly a special man! I shall never forget him and the sincere and deep faith he had for our God. I am honored to have come to know him when I served at St. Paul’s from 1990 to 1993. Know of my prayers and deepest sympathy as you grieve your loss.

  2. I David am son of George D Lorenz and will miss my grandfather. He was a good man. The last time I saw him was Dec. 25, 2004. I wish I could’ve seen him one last time.

  3. My deepest sympathies in the passing of your Father. I would pick up and deliver his taxes each year and always spend some time visiting with him. When our office was still located in Weirton, he would stop by after morning mass. George was a very nice man who I will miss. My deepest sympathies.

  4. George was a wonderful man with a big giving heart. He lived his faith with every breath he took whether it was reading at mass, walking through the halls of the school, or stopping to give a hug along with the promise of a prayer. God took a gentle giant home. He will be missed.

  5. Dear George and Leslie, So sorry about the passing of your father. You have our deepest sympathy. He was our good neighbor on 10th Street for many years. Tom and Gerry Banketas
