November 9, 1923 — March 23, 2011

George Duwel, a Davis resident for the past 14 years, passed away Wednesday, March 23, following a brief illness. He was born and raised in Park Ridge, Ill.

Mr. Duwel enjoyed a lifelong love of the sea. He first learned to sail on Lake Michigan while he attended high school at what is now Maine East. He has sailed the Chesapeake Bay, The Intercoastal Water Way in Florida and various bodies of water in California. He put his boating skills to use during World War II when he served in the Coast Guard in both the European and Pacific theaters.

He was a retired wastewater treatment plant engineer. In his retirement, he volunteered his time at Sacramento Public TV KVIE where he manned the phones during membership drives. During the fall of 2004, Mr. Duwel put his engineering skills to use for the Small Business Association Disaster Relief when he went to the Gulf Shore region following devastating hurricanes. While there, George helped check the structural integrity of buildings damaged by the storms.

Mr. Duwel is survived by his four children, Charlie Duwel of Chicago; Maggie Rice (Tobin) of Indianapolis; Emily Rosemin of McHenry, Ill.; and Peter Duwel (Patti) of Rolling Meadows, Ill. He also leaves his nephew, Patrick Sarandria (Nancy) of Sacramento, as well as four grandchildren; Chris and Geoff Daupert, Alycia Rosemin, and Jimbo Duwel.

A memorial service will be held in Park Ridge, after which George’s ashes will be spread at sea by his grandson, Petty Officer First Class Chris Daupert.
