Stanwood – On Monday, November 15, 2021, George E Leasor, at the age of 93, passed peacefully from this life on earth to his heavenly abode to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He spent his last days in the house of his daughter Gina, surrounded by several of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

George was born in Kansas City, MO to Glenn and Florence Leasor and joined sisters Estelle and Darleen. The family moved between Kansas City and Chicago and spent many summers traveling from church camp to church camp while “Mom and Pop” Leasor served as cooks at the camp. After graduating from high school at Central College in KS, George moved west to attend Seattle Pacific College. His parents followed soon after to take up the post of cooks at the College.

It was at SPC that George met Carol Fosket and in less than a year they were married. As George extended his 4 years of college education into 7, he worked full time, attended classes part time, and they added two children, Gordon and Glenda, to their family. After graduation, the family moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, where George was the pastor of the FM Church. Their third child, Gayle, was born while they were in Vancouver. Their next move was to Summerland BC. This is where their 4th child Gina was born.

Then came the appeal to the pastor of FM Church in Moose Jaw SK. This move brought many adventures. Most important was the request from the small Bible school, Aldersgate Bible College, to have George “replace” their president while they looked for a permanent replacement. These 10 years have been very important in the life of the college and the many students who attended. However, George and Carol made the decision to drop out of college and return to Washington State where they could become more involved in the care of their aging parents.

George and Carol, along with their youngest daughter Gina, moved to Warm Beach Camp near Stanwood, WA. George began a career spanning over 25 years in real estate and Carol joined the camp staff, running the bookstore.

After his retirement, George continued to be involved in the camp by volunteering at the Lights of Christmas event and in the Mailroom. George and Carol eventually moved from their home on the Warm Beach Campgrounds to the Senior Community of Warm Beach where they have spent the past 5 years. Carol continues to live at the Warm Beach Seniors Community Nursing Center. George and Carol celebrated their 70th birthday in September 2021.

George was predeceased by his son, Gordon in 2008, and is survived by his wife Carol, three daughters, Glenda and Bruce Bawks, Gayle Lukan and Gina and Franklin Ridgeway, 16 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren. -children.

The family will have joint service at a later date upon the death of his wife Carol.
