George Kernek Obituary: In Holdenville, Oklahoma, on January 12, 1940, George Boyd Kernek was born to his parents, Boyd Kernek and Wilda Williams. On August 14, 2022, George Boyd Kernek passed away. Memorial services will be held at the First Baptist Church in Purcell on Saturday, August 20, 2022 at 1:30 p.m., the date and time of the passing of the deceased. Growing up in Holdenville, George spent his youth participating in various athletic endeavors. Very early on, his athletic ability was already obvious to everyone. In 1950, when he was in the sixth grade, he set the record for the highest jump in the high jump competition at the Little Olympics by jumping higher than his actual height. This record has remained unbroken up until the present day. George received a letter of achievement in basketball, baseball, and track and field during his time spent competing in high school. In 1958, he made history by becoming the first basketball player for the Wolverines to ever dunk a basketball during a game. In the same year, he also excelled on the basketball court, earning all-state honors. Following his graduation from high school, he received a basketball scholarship to attend The University of Oklahoma, where he became a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. During that time, he was successful in both baseball and basketball, earning a total of four letters. He signed a contract with the Saint Louis Cardinals at the conclusion of his junior year at the University of Oklahoma in the year 1961. After receiving his degree from OU in 1965, he went on to honor his country by joining the Army National Guard and serving his country. After retiring from the Cardinals in 1971, George started working as an insurance agent for the Farm Bureau in Lindsay, Oklahoma. He relocated to Purcell, Oklahoma, in 1979 to begin working for National Insurance Agency, and three years later, he established The Kernek Insurance Agency, from which he worked until his retirement in 2009.

Robert E. George Obituary: Bob grew up on the shores of Lake Erie in Cleveland, Ohio. He graduated from St. Ignatius High School and Xavier University in Cincinnati. Bob met his soulmate, Jane, at a Mount Saint Joseph dance. He was a 1st Lieutenant in the United States Army and was stationed in Dachau, Germany after he married Jane in 1955. Their first child, Bob, was born in 1956. After his tour of duty, the young family returned to Cleveland as he joined the Continental Insurance Company as an underwriter and sales representative. In 1958, he was transferred to Cincinnati to supervise that area. They built a home in Reading, Ohio and raised their three children. In 1968 Bob joined Franklin Savings and held a variety of duties and offices; Loan Officer, Branch Manager, Chief Appraiser, Security Officer, and Director of Branch Operations. You can bet he taught his kids how to balance a checkbook! Besides supporting the children in their music lessons, sports, scouts, and swimming, Bob was active in religious scouting and political affairs. He served three terms as a Reading Councilman. At church, Saints Peter and Paul, Bob served on Parish Council, The Holy Name Society, Rosary Group, Lector, and Song Leader. He also volunteered at the Holy Spirit Center. Bob and Jane later attended Old St. Mary’s Church in order to attend the Latin Mass. Bob and Jane were active parishioners, helping with Eucharistic Adoration and many other roles. Bob loved to go fishing, play cards (especially Bridge), pray the Rosary, read books, and attend daily Mass which included coffee with friends at White Castle afterwards. You knew Bob was happy if you heard him whistling especially while cutting the grass (which he did until he was 86!). In 2020 Bob moved to Bayley Place due to dementia, where Jane later joined him.

Mike George Obituary: George had long had a scientific approach and vision that put him ahead of mainstream thinking. In the late 1970s he was already advocating the manufacture of solar cells, wind turbines and road-rail vehicles by workers being displaced from the motor and defence sectors. In 1978 he was appointed coordinator of the Centre for Alternative Industry and Technological Systems (Caits) at North East London Polytechnic (now the University of East London). Caits was funded by the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust to further the work of the trades unions’ joint shop stewards committee representing workers at Lucas Aerospace, a major UK manufacturer, to consider how to manage the potential decline of their industry and avoid job losses. Under the radical “Lucas plan”, the committee proposed switching production from military equipment to products such as kidney dialysis machines. George led the preparation of a 200-page report, Turning Industrial Decline into Expansion – a Trade Union Initiative, which set out detailed and costed proposals for the manufacture of 150 socially useful products. Although the report failed to win political or investor backing at the time, much of its thinking has since become orthodox and several of its ideas have been acted upon. There were no compulsory redundancies at Lucas. Born in Brighton, Mike was the only child of Catherine (nee Symonds), a shopworker, and Ronald George, an engineer. The family moved to Hampshire, where he attended Cowplain county secondary school, Waterlooville, and then Purbrook Park county grammar in Purbrook. Following a short spell working in the chemicals industry, he moved to London to study psychology and zoology at North East London Polytechnic, graduating in 1969. Full Obituary
