It is with great sadness that the family of George A. Moreland (aka "Pop Pop" and/or "Motor") announces his passing on March 19, 2020. George was 91 years old.
George was preceded in death by his parents John Herman Moreland and Lila Mae Crandell Moreland.
He is remembered with love by his wife Barbara of 70 years who he met in 1948 and married in August of 1950 and their three children (Linda Williamson, Connie Phair and George Moreland Jr.).
In addition, George is survived by five (5) grandchildren and nine (9) great grandchildren along with many old and dear friends.
George will be forever remembered as a proud Marine, a caring husband and father, and a man of few words. Some of George's quick quips included "Wait a while" and "Oh boy." These will forever be remembered by all that knew George.
Following George's military service, he and Barbara raised their family and farmed in southern Anne Arundel county (Lothian). George loved to tinker on farm equipment and was known to only need three essential items to either fix or build something (duct tape, a glue gun and a chain saw).
George's greatest joy was spending time with family and friends reminiscing about old times on the farm, his RV trips to Florida, and listening to old Country Western music.
In lieu of flowers, the family request a memorial contribution to either Alzheimer's or Dementia research.
"Oh Boy," Pop-Pop we wished we could have asked you to "Wait a while" longer.
George will be laid to rest with military honors at the Maryland Veterans Cemetery, Cheltenham, Md.
