George Buehler: June 17, 1948-Feb. 28, 2018



George was born June 17, 1948 in Rodeburg, Ore. to Roy and Ruth Buehler. He grew up in Eugene, Ore. After high school, he worked briefly in Maine on a replica of the schooner America.

He moved back to the West Coast and was involved with boats for all of his life. He built and sailed two of his own design. Later he got more comfortable with power boats and designed those as well.

For years he was a trap and skeet shooter. He enjoyed it when he did well and got frustrated when he was in a slump.

He always loved his dogs, and was generous with his friends.

He is survived by his wife Gail, his sister Molly Collins (Mike) and his stepmother Janice Buehler.

A memorial will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 8 at the Holmes Harbor Rod and Gun Club.

Donations may be made to WAIF or Old Dog Haven.
