Obituary for George Brecht

George Brecht, 80, of 339 E. Jamestown Rd., Greenville, formerly of Clinton St. Greenville, passed away following a two-year illness in the early morning of Sunday, September 29, 2019 at The Villas of St. Paul's Senior Living Community in Greenville.

George was born in Pittsburgh, PA on March 27, 1939 to the late George Charles and Elizabeth B. Kirschman Brecht.

He was raised in the Jamestown area and following high school attended the former Staunton Military Academy in Virginia where he earned an associate degree. He worked in quality control for the former Greenville Steel Car and Trinity Industries. George was a member of the Jamestown Presbyterian Church.

George's passion was working on cars; he loved living near Pymatuning Lake; and he adored animals, especially his cat, Max. Wherever George was, there was a good time to be had!
