Our beloved George William Spolar, Jr. passed away on January 7, 2022 at St Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, MO.
George was born in Butte, Montana on March 7, 1954 to George and Kathryn (Kay) Markovich) Spolar, the youngest of 4 children. He attended Whittier Grade School, East Jr High and graduated from Butte High School in 1972. He married Teri Smyth in 1973 and with that unity they welcomed their only child and son, Jason in 1975, who was their pride and joy. George was a very knowledgeable, self-taught man. He was a master of many trades and was never afraid of a new challenge. His career path led him in numerous directions some of which were Great Falls, MT, San Mateo, CA and Sunnyvale where he met the love of his life Charlotte Robb in 1986. George and Charlotte were married in Miami, Oklahoma in 1988. That same year they moved to south west Missouri and later moved to the Kansas City area in 1996, where they remained and called the Kansas City, Missouri area home. After George retired in 2020, he and Charlotte were excited to make plans to travel and enjoy the next chapter in their life. George was an avid outdoorsman including hunting, fishing and camping. Over the last 10 years he became passionate about reloading and building his own personal firearms. He loved his kids and grandkids to the fullest. His eyes would light up and a big smile of love would come across his face when he was around them.
George is survived by his soulmate, Charlotte; son, Jason and his wife Nancy Kippen; daughter, Kristi Robbins; son, Andrew Wilson and Blair Lancaster; his grandchildren, Kyler and Kamber Kippen, DeSean and DeAngelo Harrison, Christian Ward, Jaeleigh and Andy Wilson, and Elly and Chase Lancaster; sister, Kay Warnstrom; brother, Duane and Julie Spolar; and many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
