George John Fertal, 81, of Bethlehem, passed away on January 13th with his family gathered by his side. He was born in Fountain Hill to Ethel and George Fertal.
George’s first car was a 1950 Chevy Bel Air and every car since remained a prized possession in pristine condition. He attended Liberty High School with his high school sweetheart and future wife, RoseMarie. They shared 60 years of marriage and good memories with their daughter, Roseann and son, George Anthony.
George first worked as a machinist for Bethlehem Apparatus and spent a year as a member of the Bethlehem Police Department before working as a security guard for Bethlehem Steel for 15 years and later, 15 years for Lucent Technologies. In retirement, he enjoyed fishing, winter trips to Florida, car shows, and following his grandchildren’s activities.
He was a member of St. Anne’s Catholic Church. George was predeceased by his parents, wife, and daughter, all who welcomed him to his eternal home with the Lord.
