In Loving Memory

Wiesehan, George Oliver

George Oliver Wiesehan was born July 8, 1931 to Ruth and George E. Wiesehan.  He passed away on January 29, 2024.  George is survived by his wife of 70 years, Joan (Scheffler),  daughter Sandra Newman (John), granddaughter Elizabeth Thurau (David), and great grandchildren Madeline, Samantha, and Nathan.  George is also survived by his sister Ruth Ann Koester (Les).  He was preceded in death by his brothers Walter (Pat) and Robert Wiesehan.

George grew up learning everything about cars and engines from his father, and worked in his father’s gas station and repair shop starting at the age of 10 years old.   He owned and operated his own Sinclair Gas Station and repair shop at different locations in St. Louis City throughout the years.  There was always “full service” at his gas pumps.  He could tell you anything about a car in detail and how to fix it.  He didn’t retire and sell his business until he was 81 years old.  That’s a lot of time to repair many many cars!  He loved and preferred working on the cars that did not have computers.  The older the car, the better the car!

George could tell wonderful stories about things that had happened to him during his life.  George was always active in his church, helping and working in any way that was needed.  He loved being outside and doing any kind of yard work and lawn care.   He especially enjoyed spending time at their log cabin in the country as a way to relax.   George found fishing to be a fun hobby, and he made many trips to Canada to catch the big fish.

George truly found happiness in spending time with his granddaughter and his three great grandchildren. They always brought a smile to his face.  He wanted to hear all about what they were doing and share in their happiness.  They brought brightness and joy to him on their visits.
