Lake havasu City, Arizona -
George Meinecke, 81, passed away on October 1, 2019, in his home in
Lake Havasu City, after a long time battle with cancer.
He was born July 15, 1938 in Mount Vernon, New York to George and Mae
Meinecke. At age 14, he moved to Tom's River, New Jersey and graduated
from Tom's River High School in 1957. He moved to Tucson, Arizona in
1962 and worked as a sales manager for a food company until
retirement. George moved to Lake Havasu City and enjoyed more than 25
years on the lake. He enjoyed collecting as a hobby.
His whole life has been about the music and cars of the 50's. He often
said he was lost in the 50's. Because of his love for that music, he
knew most of the words to the songs of the 50's. He said they brought
back many memories of a wonderful time in his life.
George is survived by his loving wife; Barbara, their seven children;
Larry, Chris, Kelly, Debbie, Sherry, Pamela and Mark, their 17
grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
In Lieu of flowers, please make donations to Hospice of Havasu in
