Obituary

On November 22, 2021, George Wiley Treadway Jr., 89, of Bel Air, passed away. He was the devoted son of the late George and Olive (Alloway) Treadway; loving husband of 67 years to Madelyn Treadway; cherished father of Stephen Treadway & his wife Brenda, Elaine Gaston & her husband Fred, Mark Treadway and Joanne Bennett & her husband Jake; dear brother of Gerald Treadway; grandfather of Sara Daniel, Jason Cunningham, Mikaela Bennett, Brianna Bennett & Daniel Treadway; great grandfather of Leah Daniel, Ryan Daniel, Annabelle Cunningham, Harrison Cunningham and Coraline Cunningham.\

George Wiley was born in Norrisville, MD, in 1932.  Some of his most fond childhood memories include visiting his grandparents’ farm in New Park, PA, and spending summer days at Shenberger’s Pool. He met his beloved wife, Madelyn, at Millersville State Teachers College.  George treasured his memories of campus life, and loved sharing these stories with his grandchildren – especially the stories of his dates at the Sugar Shack with Madelyn.  They married on Christmas Eve in 1953.  Shortly after, George served in the Korean War on a team that maintained communication stations.  During his time abroad, he lived with the Japanese people and learned to speak their language.  George cherished these memories and was always keen to share his slides and pictures with family and friends.  Upon his return home, he served as an industrial arts teacher at North Harford High School and Dumbarton Junior High.  An incredibly talented woodworker, George designed and built the family vacation house in Bethany Beach, Delaware, which was enjoyed by four generations of family members.  After 30 dedicated years in public education, he retired to devote more time to his second career building custom sauna baths, hot tubs, and wind tunnels.  He loved to travel, especially in his Holiday Rambler with the camping club.  For many years, George and his wife spent the winter seasons vacationing in St. Thomas, one of his favorite places to visit.  When he was not teaching, woodworking, or spending time at the beach, George served as an elder, trustee, and youth advisor in the Presbyterian church.  He had a great appreciation for music, dancing, and the arts and was particularly fond of the Rocky Gap Blue Grass Festival.  George’s influence on his family was profound, as both children and grandchildren were inspired to pursue interests in music and the arts, as well as careers in education.  He was a proud father and grandfather who dearly loved spending time with his family.  His legacy will have a lasting impact on all who loved him.        

Family & friends will honor and celebrate George's life at the Centre Presbyterian Church, 83 New Park Rd., New Park, PA on November 30, 2021, from 10 - 11 AM. with a Service beginning at 11:00 A.M. Interment in the church cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the AMVETS, in George's name.
