George Bernard Bockman Jr.

George is also survived by his grandchildren, Stephanie, Elizabeth, Ashlie, Catherine, Tyler, Taylor, Nicholas, and Benjamin; his mother, Dolores Ida (Smith) Bockman; his sisters, Susan Deaner (Chuck), and Nadia Murphy (Tim); his best friend, Bill Smith; honorary daughter, Kim Sipowitz and family; and a large extended family that includes his sisters-in-law, Joann, Norma, Carolyn, Sue and Betty, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews throughout the country. George was preceded in death by his father, George Bernard Bockman Sr.; and his brother, Richard Joseph Bockman. George was born October 18, 1941, in Geneva, Illinois. Thanks to his father’s military career, George had the fortune to live throughout the country and England before becoming a Hampton Crabber for 40 years and eventually settling in Palmyra, Virginia. George proudly served his country in the United States Army as a paratrooper with the 101st “Screaming Eagles” Airborne Division. After 25 years of dedicated service as a firefighter, inspector and training officer, George retired as a Station Officer, Captain from the City of Hampton Fire Department in 1996. After “retirement” George continued to operate his business, G.B. General Contracting and perform inspections for the Hampton City Schools as the Safety Liaison Officer. Looking forward to true retirement, George and Jean moved to Lake Monticello in 2004. Thanks to his friend, Scott Morris and to the chagrin of his wife, George embarked on a new career with the Fluvanna County Schools as a substitute teacher, transportation specialist, coach and athletic department jack-of-all-trades. Coming second only to his family, George was an avid golfer and enthusiastically swung a club as often as he could. George believed in doing his civic duty, most notably with the American Legion and various youth sports organizations. In addition to his love of his family and golfing, his other great passion was coaching not just in sports but life and everyone who had the pleasure of knowing George will be forever thankful for his efforts. The family would appreciate any expressions of sympathy to be in the form of donations to the Fluvanna High School Girls’ Softball Program or Lake Monticello Volunteer Fire and Rescue.
