Obituary for George Leverence, Jr.

George Leverence, Jr., age 88, of Spring Grove, passed away Friday, August 16, 2019 at his home surrounded by his loving family. George was born on March 11, 1931 in Chicago to George, Sr. and Frances (Cebulski) Leverence. On June 7, 1958 he married his lifelong sweetheart, Margaret E. Zarbock.

Born and raised in Chicago, George was a 1949 graduate of Tilden High School. He also attended Illinois Institute of Technology. George was a veteran of the United States Air Force.
