George Matthew Loch, Jr. (97) of Tavares, FL, recently passed away on Saturday, April 4, 2020.  George was born on September 6, 1922 in St. Louis, MO to the late George Sr. and Margaret (Roehrich) Loch.  He graduated from Mansfield Madison High School.  He married Betty McNaul on November 11, 1944.  They recently celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary.  They moved to Tavares, FL in the late 1980’s.

George served in the U.S. Army during World War II in the 314th Combat Engineers Battalion.  He worked for 25 years at the Mansfield Tappan plant. Next he worked in management at Perfection Manufacturing in Mansfield and eventually became part owner until he retired.

Boating was a lifelong hobby of George’s and he was a longtime member of the Mansfield Power Squadron.  He was also active in the Masonic Temple (33rd degree) and Shriners.  He held numerous leadership positions in these three organizations.  George and Betty spent many hours volunteering as Shriner clowns.  George enjoyed playing the accordion and harmonica and was self taught.  He played in different bands until the age of 90.
