George was born on June 8, 1928 in Hartington to John and Wilhelmina (Wieseler).  George’s mother died when he was 13 years old.

He loved the land and his 50 years of farming along with many excursions in the surrounding rural communities and states. He was very interested in the progression of farming as well as the history of agriculture from the time he was young.  Every trip was an adventure.  He enjoyed his bolt business and visiting with his customers.  His kids, grand and great grandkids gave him much joy as he gave to them.  His favorite things included card playing, road trips, woodworking and visiting with all.

George is survived by his 7 children and spouses, Kathy (Verne) Climer, South Sioux City NE, Dan (Bonnie), Ft. Collins CO, Joni (Steve) Pier, Yankton SD, Christie Sucha, Lincoln NE, Peggy (John) Frank, Yankton, SD, Rick (MaryAnn) Mission Viejo CA, Karla (Todd) Fluent, Lincoln NE, 21 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren; 3 brothers, Jerome, Harold (MaryGay), Chuck(Bev) and 7 sisters, Wilhelmina Boecker, Ann (Jay) Walz, Agnes Hochstein, Alice Klug Yeager, Charlene (Dennis)Meyer, Ruthie Heine, and Linda (Dale) Trenhaile.

    Dear FEILMEIER Cousins and Family of George, I will miss Uncle George, as I miss Loraine. George easily fit in category of ‘cool nice guy uncle’ who I always enjoyed chatting with as a kid or adult. So I am sure you all will miss him! You have our sympathy and support and we will be with you in spirit this weekend. Duane and Kathy Noecker

    Kathy and all the Feilmeier family
    My sympathy and prayers for the recent death of your Dad.
    “A Father’s legacy is not worldly good, riches, or possessions of any kind—-
    It is the way he lived, the lives he touched, the promises he kept—-
    It is the kind of man he was”
    May memories and faith comfort you!
