George Robert Damskey

George Robert Damskey    WWII Army Air Corps veteran, George Robert Damskey, 87, passed away unexpectedly on Sept. 18 at the Renown Hospital in Reno, Nev.
    George, a professional carpenter, helped build the ICBM system in the 1960s and many Stanford University athletic venues in the 1970s.
    George is survived by Frances (Babe), his cherished wife of 61 years. Their dream, upon retirement, was to visit every state in the United States. That dream came true, an experience generously shared with beloved friends and family during countless family gatherings. A recent trip to Alaska with his family was a highpoint of George’s full life.
    He will be greatly missed by his son Bob and wife Karen, their children Meredith and Michael; Meredith’s husband Joe, their children Madison and Mackenzie; and by son Richard, his wife Dawn, their daughters Amy and Jill, and Amy’s husband Matt and their three children, Logan, Cole and Morgan. Other survivors include many nieces and nephews who loved Uncle George and will never forget his famous “whisker rub”; his two brothers, Ordell Damskey, his wife Ruby, of Palo Alto, Calif., Charles Damskey, of Sunnyvale, Calif., and three beloved sister-in-laws, Loretta Krall, of Reno, Nev., Marge Gebhardt, of Conrad, and Katie Reed, of Martin City.
