George was born on January 12, 1934 at Winifred, KS, to George and Virgie (Stepp) Feldhausen.  In 1951, he graduated from Frankfort High School.  He farmed four years after graduation.  Then, with his cousin James Feldhausen, he volunteered for the draft.  They were hoping to get called and stationed together during the service.  This did not work out.  When the draft call came in June 1955 it was for one person.  Because he signed his name first it was George that was called to serve.  He was sent to Camp Chaffee, Arkansas for basic training and then to radio operator school.  He was stationed in Arkansas for five-and-a-half months, and then sent to Fort Bliss Texas in El Paso.  He was assigned to Headquarters Battery 90th AAA Battalion in the communications department.  George spent 18-and-a-half months in El Paso, and he was discharged on June 14, 1957.  George came home and on August 26, 1957 he went to work for the Union Pacific Railroad in the signal department.  It was nine years that he spent on the signal gang working in Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado.  On August 16, 1966 he was assigned as a signal maintainer in Marysville and worked there until his retirement on January 5, 1996. On April 27, 1958, he married Betty Gurtler.  They were blessed with a set of twins on February 11, 1959, Daniel Lee and Debra Kay.  George loved to travel and made it to all 50 states.  He and Betty did a lot of bowling in local league, state, and national tournaments.  He spent most of his time fishing at local ponds and at the Big Blue River dam.  He liked going to ball games at Cleo Feldhausen Field, as well as hunting, dancing, and playing cards.  George was a member of the United Methodist Church, Moose Lodge, American Legion, Odd Fellows, NARVRE, and UPEC.  Preceding him in death were his parents; wife, Betty; brother, Cleo; and sister, Alice. Survivors include his son, Dan (Fran) Feldhausen; daughter, Deb (Ron) Loges, both of Marysville; three grandchildren, Ryan (Ivy) Feldhausen, Lisa (Brian) Price and Stacie (Jim) Ellenbecker; three great grandchildren, Madalyn and Joe Ellenbecker and Jackson Price. A memorial fund has been established and will be designated later.  Contributions may be sent in care of Kinsley Mortuary. To order memorial trees or send flowers to the family in memory of George S.
