George G. Reuter

November 15, 1936 ~ August 18, 2021 (age 84)


George Reuter, 84, of Ohio, passed away Wednesday, August 18, 2021, at Franklin Grove Living and Rehabilitation Center.

He worked as a self-employed farmer and owner operator of Reuter’s Trucking.  George enjoyed camping with his family & taking his camper out to Arizona during the winter months. George was very proud of owning his own farm and was very social in the community.  His sense of humor and “driveway talks” will surely be missed by all.

He is survived by his wife of 60 years Pat Reuter; two children, Son, Jeff (Patti) Reuter of Machesney Park, IL, Daughter, Susan (Joe) Donnelly of Ohio, IL, brother Tom ( Ann) Reuter of Sterling IL, sister Florence Hichborn of Bettendorf IA, Sister in Law Carolyn Reuter of Sterling IL, four grandchildren; Bob (Julia) Hochstein, Kristi Ransom, Ashley Donnelly & Diana Donnelly; four great-grandchildren, Jermaine & Jaxsun Ransom, Lorelei & Jonah Hochstein.

George was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Bill.
