Obituary

George Arnold Lehor of Ormond Beach, Florida passed peacefully at 88 years young into the arms of his Lord at his home. At his side was his wife, daughter, and son in law on his most favorite day of the year, Christmas Eve, as that is when our family gathered to open Christmas presents.

George began his career as an apprentice tool and die maker at Cutler Hammer in Cudahy, Wisconsin. Later he became a time study manager for this company as well.

His crowning achievements aside from his beautiful family, were that of being the founding father of the Employee Leasing industry in South Florida in 1969, as well as the President of the Florida Trucking Association. He served as President of the FOPA for many years in Coral Gables, FL and was a Finance committee member on the board of the Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranches. George also served on the missions’ board at Life Church Assembly of God for many years as well as Christ for the Nations. He participated in The Million Man March on Washington DC.

George was the most gentle and loving man who loved God with all his heart and family was everything to him. He mentored many who sought his advice and as he was blessed, he blessed others.

George loved deep sea fishing, but more than that he loved to share that experience with others. During their trips to Bimini, he would be their awesome cook as cooking was another passion of his. He also enjoyed freshwater fishing with the guys in Boise, Idaho. He remained an avid golfer up until a month before he passed and had two holes in one at The Villages Executive golf courses.

George is survived by his loving wife of 69 years, Geraldine, and his three favorite daughters, Debra Girard (Steven) of Ormond Beach, FL, Dawn Mozealous (James Douglas) of Miami, FL, and Susan Enayat (Ali) of Miami, FL, as well as his favorite grandson, Ryan Girard of Petaluma, CA., and favorite granddaughter, Jennifer Pike (Adam Creighton) of Morrisville, VT, and his favorite great granddaughter, Karra Pike and favorite great grandson, Aven Pike of Morrisville, VT. He is also survived by his brother, John Lehor of Orlando, FL.

His love of children led to his dinner table conversation every night, which was full of concern for the Youth Ranches and how their donations are being affected by COVID-19. Therefore, in lieu of flowers, and in accordance with George’s wishes, please donate to the Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranches- Sorensen camp matching gift campaign.

We know we will be with you once again so for now we will not say goodbye, but we’ll see you when we are called home.

Leaving with his daily scripture that George said every morning, 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and love, and of a sound mind.”

    I am still deeply shaken by the loss of my wonderful Father-In-Law, George A. Lehor, Jr. He was so very kind and good to me and treated me like his son, truly welcoming me into his family. I will miss him forever. This is a tribute to a great man, a man I called “The Leader of Our Band” and “The Captain of Our Ship”. He is a man who:
    - Loved his wife, Gerry, his daughters Debi, Dawn and Suzie and his family
    - Truly believed in Jesus Christ as Savior
    - Worked hard every day to care for his family and build a lasting legacy that still exists today
    - Treated everyone he met with kindness and respect
    - Had the greatest sense of humor
    - Walked the walk by donating his time, efforts and money to help the community
    - Was larger than life
    - Traveled the world and embraced it
    - Sang like an angel and moved everyone who heard him sing in his quartet and with his wife, Gerry
    - Listened, understood, gave great advice and mentored so many people
    - Everyone he met & touched came away better for it
    - Leaves a hole in this world but who we will see again and is now an Angel in Heaven

    I love you George and I hope I told you that enough.

    Rest In Peace

    I will always remember George Lehor as one of the kindness and calmness persons that I ever knew. I worked for him and his family for over 10 years at Employers Overload/Employers Contract Services, which was my very first job and let me say, it was one of the best and blessed experiences of my life. George had such love for his family and others. I’ll never forget how welcoming he and the Lehor family made me feel in a new country at that time. I will cherish the memories. My heartfelt condolences to the Lehor family. May his soul Rest In Peace

    Our love and prayers go out to the Lehor family.

    Our family lived in the same neighborhood in Cutler Ridge, south of Miami with the Lehors and became close friends due to the friendship of our parents (like all the brothers in one family and the sisters in the other)
    I have many wonderful memories of Mr. Lehor's love of boating and sharing that love with friends and family, always making us feel like we were part of his immediate family. Some of my best memories are from the times that he would sit me down with a bowl of peanuts and get the details of what was happening in the neighborhood from me, as the youngest of our family. I am thankful for the time that I was able to spend with him and the positive mark that he left on my life's journey.

    My deepest love and prayers extended to everyone in my adopted Lehor family. I've had the great joy of knowing George, Gerry and the girls for almost 40 years. I have never known a more kind, gentle loving man of God as George. Memories are numerous and joyful. The love he had for Gerry and his "kids" shown brightly from his eyes. He loved to sing in the church quartet and with Gerry. He held prayer groups and mentored many young men. What a gift! He never made a show of his generosity to others, but theirs lives were forever changed by it. I know he is in the loving arms of his and our Lord and Savior. We shall see him again!

    Popala, I Love You So Much And I Miss You! You Are My Hero! I’m Still In Shock! This Is The Worst Thing I’ve Experienced In My Lifetime. The One Thing That Consoles Me Is I Know You Are In The Arms of Jesus And So Happy, Young And Healthy! Most People Could Only Dream Of Having A Father Like You! I Was So Very Blessed! You Used To Address Me As “Your Favorite Daughter” And I Loved That And Even Believed It Until I Heard You Address Dawn & Debi The Same Way! LOL. You Were Always Humorous! You May Be Gone From This World But You Are Very Much Alive In Heaven And I Will See You Again One Glorious Day! It’s Been Said That You Are One Person In This World Or The World To One Person And You Are The World To Me My Whole Life! Popala, I won’t Say Goodbye. See You Later! ❤️❤️❤️ Your Favorite Daughter, Suzie.
