George Michael Plummer Sr., 67, died on Sunday (July 24, 2011) at the Robert J. Dole  Veterans Hospital in Wichita.
He was born on Dec. 5, 1943, in Louisville, Ky., to Glenn M. and Georgia P. (Ford) Plummer. On Oct. 8, 1964, he married Anita Jaso, and she survives of the home.
George served his country in the U.S. Army with a tour in Vietnam and during the peacetime era from 1960 to 1965 and was honorably discharged. Following his military service, he owned several businesses and worked as an expert mechanic before retiring from Hay and Forage as a supervisor. George’s greatest source of pride was his beloved family, and he was well known for never having  met a stranger. In our hearts, we remember this isn’t goodbye, it’s just “so long.”
