B. I. George was born on September 9, 1924 and passed away on Thursday, October 10, 2019.

B. I. George was a resident of Marshalltown, Iowa at the time of passing.

He graduated from the Ames High School following his return from active service in WWII.

He did not know what branch to enlist in (his friend did Marines), so he decided to take the hallway to the right in the enlistment center and the second door on the left would be the branch- it was the US Coast Guard.

After WWII and finishing high school, he did a correspondence course and then attended the Worsham College of Mortuary Science in Chicago.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, October 16th, at the Mitchell Family Funeral Home with Pastor Nan Smith officiating. Masonic rites will be presented at the start of the service. Visitation will be held one-hour prior to the services at the funeral home. In 1969, he returned to funeral service by taking a job at the Estel-Perrin Funeral Home in Marshalltown. George was a member of the Hope United Methodist Church, Marshall Masonic Lodge, Frank Lewis Glick American Legion Post #46, Harry C. Harter VFW Post #839, Elks Lodge, ZaGaZig Shrine of Des Moines and the noon Lions Club.

Memorials may be directed to the Iowa River Hospice.
