George Daniel Kleist, BHS 1944
On August 14, 1948, he married Evelyn Louise Warnock. They raised four boys and had several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They moved from their home in Burbank to Arroyo Grande in 1970. While raising their children, he was active in Indian Guides (where he was known as "Full Moon"); Cub Scouts; Boy Scouts; and Explorer Scouts, for which he was Scout Master, something he enjoyed very much.
He lost his precious wife of 51 years, truly his soul mate, to cancer on May 30, 1999. Since he was only 76 when he died of a sudden heart attack, his family strongly believes he left to meet up with his one-and-only true love.
He was loved and will be greatly missed. He gave his stories, love and good "rules to live by." He will never be forgotten and will live on in the hearts of his family forever.
