George E. Seelinger, 91, of Conewango Avenue, Warren, and Lakeside Campground, Stow, NY, died Sunday, May 13, 2018, at Rouse Home of Youngsville, PA.  George was born August 5, 1926, in Erie, PA, the son of the late George W. and Margaret C. (Morse) Seelinger. 


George was ranked as a Seaman First Class in the Pacific Theater during World War II with the US Navy as a Patrol Craft Escort (PCE) and Rescue 853; PCE 904; and the Achomawi Class Ocean Tug, USS Chawsha.  He was a member of the IAM Union and was employed by Watson's Manufacturing and Larson's Manufacturing in Jamestown, NY.  He ultimately retired from Jamestown Manufacturing in 1988.


George's family and friends remember him as an expert fisherman, the greatest handyman of all time, a practical jokester and the camp mascot.  During his time at the Rouse Home, George had been lovingly appointed the "hall monitor" of his floor.  He will be missed by all who knew him.

In addition to his parents, George was preceded in death by his former wife, Margaret L. Kent, and his second wife, Gertrude A. Lefford Warren; daughter—Charlene A. Morgan; two step-sons, Paul and Bill Warren; sister—Jean Kinstler; and three brothers—James, Reginald, and Donald Seelinger.

Rest in peace my friend. You became my mentor in 1997 when we first met at Lakeside Camp. You showed me everything I know about setting up and maintaining a trailer, and setting up and taking care of a boat slip, using screw poles. For those last 20 were great company, always good for a joke or story or 2, and full of camping and fishing tips. You will be missed George. Love ya man!

I have been truly blessed to cross paths with George, Karen, Kevin, Linda and families ... It was a honor and priviledge to provide care to George. I will continue to have each of you in my thoughts and prayers as you celebrate his life here on earth, and the many lives he touched.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. George will be greatly missed. We have many fond memories of him from years at camp. We enjoyed his stories and his friendship for many years. The kids and grandchildren always enjoyed touring camp with him on his golf cart. Rest in Peace George.

My deepest condolences to the family. I am sure he will be greatly missed.

Until today I was unaware that I had a great uncle. George was the brother of my grandfather Donald (aka Dutch). I am sorry that I did not have an opportunity to know him.

I was very lucky to have met George way back in the early 70's at Lakeside Camp. Lots of memories, always exciting to see him carrying a big muskie up from the lake. He loved children, I remember him putting a bike together from old spare parts for my son Victor. See you in heaven!
