Donald Richard George

November 25, 1954 ~ July 26, 2022 (age 67)


Donald Richard George passed away on July 26th at his home, surrounded by his wife

and children in Washington, Utah, after a valiant battle with cancer. He was born in Evanston,

Wyoming, on November 25th, 1954 to parents, Hiram William George and Dorothy Rose


On February 25th,1977, Don married the love of his life, Catherine Condie George. Their

marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake City, Utah temple on February 25th, 1978. After

a few years in Utah, they moved their family back to Evanston, Wyoming, where they raised

their children. They have been married for 45 years.

Don was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints where he

served a mission in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Don served in various callings including Bishop

and a counselor in the Stake Presidency, but his true love was being the primary chorister.

Don’s talents took him all over the world. From a young age, he loved participating in high

school theater, school choir, where he traveled to Europe, and was an alternate for the Mormon

Tabernacle Choir. Don enjoyed being part of the community arts- Civic Orchestra and Hats Off

to Broadway.

Don loved growing up and raising his children in Evanston. He served on various boards

such as hospital and school, always wanting to be involved in the community he adored so

much. Throughout 40 years of employment, Don whistled and sang the days away working for

the City of Evanston, Pacific Power, alongside Cathie at her daycare, and for the Uinta County

Planning and Zoning, where he retired in August, 2021.

Family was Don’s pride and joy. Focused on making memories, there were countless

family trips to Disneyland, year round traditions including Grandma’s Christmas, building the

sledding hill, caroling, summer park hopping, and movies in the backyard. He treated everyone

he met like family and truly wanted people’s lives to be full of joy and happiness.

Condie, Brother and sister-in-law Robert (Marlene) George, brothers Thomas, and Timothy
