Carson George Jr.

Carson Michael George Jr., 67, of Arkville passed away on January 2 after a long, courageous battle with cancer.

He was the son of the late Carson M. George Sr. and Helen “Bucky” (Buckley) George. Michael, as he was known to his family, was a graduate of Margaretville Central School and Ulster County Community College and attended Northwestern University.

He lived most of his life in Arkville, as the owner and operator of his contracting company, Leprechaun Construction. He was an avid sports fan, with the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame being one of his favorite teams.

Michael is survived by six sisters and three brothers. Cathleen Spickerman of Rensselaer; Colleen Davis of Grand Junction, CO; Jeanne Marie George of Steubenville, OH; Patricia (Lonnie) Miller of Grand Junction, CO, Pamela Smith of Grand Junction CO, Lisa Jean George of Steubenville, OH, Stephen George of Greenville; Jon George of Arkville and Timothy George of Afton.

Michael is also survived by his nieces Erin Mead, Jennifer Ennist, Kaitlyn Smith, Jessica George and Stephanie George. Also nephews Justin Spickerman, Damon Davis, Shawn Davis, Brendon Bailey and Jared George. He was predeceased by a sister Maureen George.

The family would like to thank the Margaretville Memorial Hospital, Hospice, and the oncology floor of the Albany Medical Center for the care extended to Michael. Also, to friends Robbie Webster and Wayne Caswell for driving him to his many appointments. Calling hours and a Mass of Christian Burial will take place later in the spring at the convenience of the family. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Hynes Funeral Home, Margaretville.
