George Stadstad, age 104 passed away September 30, 2021 at Good Samaritan Society, Larimore, ND.

  George was born in Manvel May 4, 1917 and attended grade school at Ferry Township school and Manvel High School. He attended the University of North Dakota and he worked on the family farm until his marriage to Thelma Sandaker in 1939. They moved to San Diego, CA during the war years where he worked as an inspector at Consolidated Aircraft with his new bride, Thelma (Sandy) who worked as a riveter. After the war he, Thelma and new son Terry moved back to Manvel and began farming. George farmed successfully until the late sixties. After retiring from farming  and marriage to Jackie he moved to Harlingen, TX, where he purchased a cotton seed processing plant that he operated until 1983, then fully retired, moved to Mesa, AZ. After living in Mesa then Reno, NV, he and Jackie moved back to Grand Forks. After Jackie passed away George re-married in 2011 to Luane Hoverson, Luane passed away in 2015.

  George had a personality that could light up a room. He always had a positive can-do attitude and could lift your spirts with kind words of encouragement. He always had stories to tell and jokes that could create a few red faces. Above all, he loved his family and enjoyed having them around to visit. He will be greatly missed.

Funeral Services will be at Amundson Funeral Home 2975 S. 42nd St., Grand Forks, ND, on October 5.

Visitation will be one hour prior to services.

Interment will be in Middle Grove cemetery.
