Obituary

George C. Graef, age 85, of Newark, DE, peacefully passed away on May 9, 2021, in his home, surrounded by his wife and three children.

After his retirement of 30 years from Chrysler, he was passionate about traveling, spending time with family, especially his grandchildren and wife. To all who knew and loved him, George was a fun-loving character with amazing humor, laughter that filled a room and a heart of gold that loved us all so well.

You and your family are in my heart and mind. My condolences on the passing of your husband, father, grandfather. I have many memories of my once upon a time father-in-law. Two that stick out on this day are when the family pulled over in Boone NC Jul 1992 to Bungee Jump. Also, I was truly blessed to be apart of a Christmas morning when he gave the love of his life, Gerri, a sting of Pearls. He was a welcoming, sweet and funny man, and I loved him. May God give you the peace that you seek.

Glenn and family - So very sorry for your loss. I haven't seen Mr. Graef since high school but I have fond memories of him. Always lots of fun and quite the jokester. Keeping you all in my prayers during this difficult time. Sincerely, Jacque (Hagerty) Wilson
