George Leo Spear

George Leo Spear, 72, a longtime resident of Westwood, California passed away peacefully at home May 8, 2021, with his loved ones by his side.

George was born July 31, 1948, in Dana, Indiana, the 2nd of 4 children born to Bonnie Ammerman Spear and John Russell Spear. The family moved several places in his younger years, but in the early 1960’s they settled in Westwood where he worked in the woods while attending high school. Upon graduating from Westwood High School, he was drafted and served proudly in the Army from 1966 to 1969.

After returning home from the service, George married Dixie Marler Spear and resumed his job with Collins Pine where he worked for 42 years until retirement. George was a true outdoorsman and over the years, his spare time was spent bass fishing, snowmobiling, kayaking, hunting, exploring with his quad and camping. He had a quiet, dignified charm, a contagious laugh, loved telling stories (sometimes just to stir the pot) and genuinely enjoyed speaking with people. He could talk to anybody. He was our rock.

George is survived by his life partner Melany Johnson, daughter Bobbi Spear, sister Myrna Kerns, brother William Rusty Spear, sister Julia Williams (David) and his ex-wife Dixie Spear.
George was preceded in death by his parents and other special people from his life and is now enjoying a festive reunion with them. A celebration of Georgie’s life will happen at a later date.
