George W. Kandlstorfer

Sept. 30, 1927 — Dec. 24, 2018

George was born on Sept. 30, 1927, to the late Anton and Catherine (Wallisch) Kandlstorfer in Dowagiac. He was a lifelong resident of Dowagiac.

George served his country for eight years from 1951 to 1959. George fought on heartbreak ridge during the Korean War. George will be missed around town buying his lottery tickets at Hardings, getting lunch at the hospital, but most of all by the little animals and birds that he always cared for and fed.

George, you’ve gone home, I can’t wait to see those tomato plants you’re growing up there. God bless you.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Rose; four brothers, John, Tony, Robert, and Joseph; and three sisters, Margaret, Sally and Annie.

In keeping with his wishes, cremation has taken place. Burial will be held at Mission Hills Memorial Garden on Friday, Jan. 4, 2019, with military honors rendered. He will be laid to rest in the veteran’s section next to his wife.
