Obituary of George William Wiedman
George William Wiedman, Jr., 81, of Mt. Bethel, PA, passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 6, 2019 at his home with his loving family at his side.
Born on March 18, 1938 in Kearny, NJ, he was the son of the late George and Jean Van Houten Wiedman. George was raised in Belvidere, NJ. For most of his adult life, he lived in Lebanon Township, NJ where he built his family home and raised his family until retiring to Mt. Bethel, PA in 2003.
George graduated from Belvidere High School in 1958. After high school, he enlisted in the New Jersey Army National Guard and served as a Sergeant for eight years in Co. B 3rd 59th Armor, Hackettstown, NJ.
George married his wife of 54 years, Doris (Trimmer) on June 5, 1965. He followed in his grandfather's footsteps and worked in the construction industry for 46 years as a mason/bricklayer for NJ Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Union Local #4. He not only took pride in his work, but truly relished the friends he had made during his time in his business.
George was an avid antiques collector, especially anything related to dairy. He loved boating and spent many of his early years racing boats, then later in life sharing his love of boating with his family on the family property on the Delaware River.
George had a rich and full life but the part he loved the most was his family. He will truly be missed by all of his family and everyone who knew him.
