George E. Faulkner, 82, of Troy Township, Pennsylvania, passed away, early Monday morning, December 14, 2021 at his residence while surrounded by the love of his family. George Edward was born March 17, 1939 in Sayre to the late Egbert and Ada (Statler) Faulkner. No stranger to hard work he was employed by Kingsley’s Chicken Farm in his earlier years and most recently by Judson’s Inc. in Columbia Cross Roads as a truck driver for 37 years until he retired. George was a dedicated member and a Past Governor of the Moose, Canton Lodge 429 and served the lodge since 1979 with Moose Pride.
George was a true outdoorsman. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping. George could often be found mowing his yard or just sitting outside taking in all of nature’s beauty. He was also an avid bowler. George was a quiet, gentle man with a kind and caring heart. Being a very giving person, he never turned his back to those that needed help. Most important to George was his family and the time they spent together.
