He is now singing his favorite song, “Victory in Jesus” in the presence of His Lord. George was born to Daniel and Mildred Pease of Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1937. As a young adult he took over his dad’s business, Pease Costume Shop, which he ran in conjunction with a General Store for many years. At the age of 39, George felt called to the ministry and moved his family to Minnesota to attend Central Baptist Seminary. As a Baptist minister Rev. Pease pastored churches in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Ohio. He loved preaching and studying God’s Word, and served His Lord and Master for over 40 years in the pulpit. In the last 15 years he was also lovingly known throughout Columbus and Olmsted Township as “Grandpa George” due to his side home maintenance business. He enjoyed helping those in need of repairs and was self-taught in many areas. Collecting Lionel trains was a hobby he enjoyed from his childhood on, and it gave him many hours of pleasure.
