FAIRFAX – George Christopher Drinkwine, Sr., 95, passed away on Friday, December 18, 2020 at St. Albans Health and Rehab in St. Albans. George was born in Fletcher on July 25, 1925 son of the late William and Ada (Lucia) Drinkwine.

There are many generations from the area and true to his roots George also lived in the Fletcher/Fairfax area his entire life. He was a dairy farmer for many years. As many farmers do he enjoyed helping out his friends and neighbors around town. He was always puttering around and would often just shovel his neighbors driveway and brush off their cars. George will be missed by all those that knew and loved him.

He is survived by his two children, daughter Pamela Catudal and husband Anthony of Fairfax, son Donald Drinkwine and wife Cynthia of Plainfield, many nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was also predeceased by his son George C. Drinkwine, Jr. and brothers, Francis, Walter and Carlton.

Due to the current Covid restrictions visiting hours will be private. A graveside service will be planned for the spring. The family invites you to share your memories by visiting awrfh.com.
