George Peter Weseman 12-23-1924 ~ 8-4-2020 The writer Henry David Thoreau once said, “The language of friendship is not words but meanings.” George was a true friend in every sense to everyone. He understood that being there for others was part of being human, and death is not something that can ever break that relationship. George's family encourages all reading this to be a friend to anyone, and by doing so, you keep George’s spirit alive in a world that desperately needs love and compassion. Simply put, George's light will forever shine in the actions of his friends George is survived by his children, Jeff of Leland, IL, Janet (Jeff) Gilbert of Batavia, IL, Judith Willett of Wheaton, IL and Ken (Ann) Weseman of Wheaton, IL; his grandchildren, Bob (Mary) Schmidt, Michael Schmidt, Kim (Paul) Obutusin, Adam (Melanie) Gilbert, Stefanie (Nate) DeMont, Bradley (Amanda) Nelson, Benjamin Willett, Lauren (Nick) Willett, Dana (John) Willett, Laura (Ben) Slater, Kevin Slater, and Hannah Weseman; Eight Great Grandchildren; Brother James (Lorraine) Weseman of Lombard, IL and Cheryl (Dennis) Li Causi of Plainfield, IL.
