Georg Andersen was born in Philadelphia, PA in 1927. He left school early at the age of 16 to join the military and served in WWII as a Merchant Marine in the Philippines, and did a tour in Germany where he was an ambulance driver with the Army. He received an honorary high school diploma in 2006 from Mountain Grove High School, recognizing his sacrifice and service to our country. He worked as a brick layer for over 50 years and was a lifetime member of the Bricklayers Union.
Georg was very active in his church and community, he was a member of the VFW, American Legion, and the Danish Brotherhood. In his younger years he enjoyed skiing in Colorado, and as he got older, took up stamp and coin collecting. When he turned 80 he took art classes and began water color painting. He lived a full life and always had something to share with everyone he met. He was bold in his faith, firm in his convictions, and inspired his children to learn something new every day.
