Obituary for George J. Engler

George J. Engler, age 72, passed away on May 20, 2020 surrounded by his loving family.

George was born on May 4, 1948 in Mount Vernon, NY, the son of the late Emily Engler (nee Mullen) and Joseph Engler.

George proudly served our country in the Army during the Vietnam War from 1968 to 1969. He was awarded two Overseas Service Bars, Vietnam Cross of Gallantry with Palm, Combat Infantry Badge, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, and two Purple Hearts with Oak Leaf Clusters.

In 2003, George retired from CNA, (formerly Continental Insurance), after 37 years of employment.

There has never been a bigger sports fan than George! He was a HUGE New York Giants, Mets, and Rangers fan!

George is survived by his adoring son, Erik (Peggy) and his daughter, Nicole (Pete), as well as six loving grandchildren who have always been his greatest joys. Kylee, Carlie, Kyle, Shane, Liam, and Maeve will always carry their loving ‘Beep’ within their hearts. Also surviving is George’s loving sister, Pat (Bruce), and two brothers, Dennis and Larry (Marcia), as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

A memorial service for George will be held at a future date.

Arrangements entrusted to Overman-Jones Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 15219 S. Joliet Rd., Plainfield, IL 60540.
