George Henry Scheuer III, age 94, of Stone Mountain, GA, died July 15, 2020. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Shirley A. Scheuer, and son Larry Scheuer. He is survived by his wife, Jean Rudnik Scheuer. He is also survived by loving members of two families. Those survivors include his son Joe Scheuer and wife Maggie, daughters Kathy Scott and husband Kent and Pamela Hughes and husband Andrew, and sister Madeline Raheb and husband Bill. George had five grandchildren and five great grandchildren. George’s extended family survivors include Jean’s daughter Karen Southard and husband Rich, three grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.

George was born on June 18, 1926, in Brooklyn, New York, to parents George Henry Scheuer II and Lottie Scheuer. He served his country with honor and distinction as a veteran of both World War II and the Korean War. He joined the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1945 and spent seven years as an aircraft mechanic, ending his military career as a staff sergeant. He spent several years stationed in Japan and Okinawa.

George spent 30 years at Low-Temp Industries, a manufacturer of commercial kitchen equipment, retiring having attained the position of vice president of engineering. He was also very active with the Catholic Church, spending many years at St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Decatur, GA, Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Stone Mountain, GA, and St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic Church in Lilburn, GA. Many friends, parishioners, and fellow members of the Knights of Columbus viewed George as a holy man of faith.

George marked his family in many ways. He will be remembered for his love of his alma mater, Georgia Tech, summers at the beach on Sanibel Island, and laughter with family and friends.

In lieu of flowers, please make memorial contributions to the St. Stephen the Martyr chapter of the St. Vincent de Paul Society.

  1. My deepest condolences to Jean, who has been like a sister to me, and the entire Scheuer family. It is unbelievable that George and my husband Dale died 2 1/2 months apart. Both of these wonderful men-who were both Military Patriots are now in Heaven, watching over us. We shared happy times together for many years , and also worked together for St Vincent de Paul and Corpus Christi Catholic Church. Jean and I also sang together in the choir. I love you Jean and feel your sorrow. Wish I could be with you in person ,but you know I am there in Spirit All the way from AZ.

  2. CandleImageSo sorry for your loss grandma, and for the Scheduler family. George was such a warm and welcoming person, and I’m so pleased to have had the chance to know him. I’m very sorry that I couldn’t be there to say goodbye in person or to be with you at this time. Much love from Beth, Justin and Edward in England.

  3. Sending my condolences to the Scheuer family. I met George and Jean while working at Corpus Christi Church. George was always fun with a big smile on his face. He was a faith filled man and I know his family will miss him dearly. May God keep and comfort you all in this difficult time.

  4. CandleImageI am so sorry for you loss grandma and the Scheduler family. George will be greatly missed, he was an amazing man and we all loved him very much. He was always a pleasure to have around and we are grateful we knew him. Love Sarah, Justin and Emmett.

  5. CandleImageJean, Our lives went in different directions several years ago. You and George settled into a new home at Park Springs and Carroll and I settled here at St. George Village in Roswell. I thought about the two of you now and again. I always admired you; you both gave so freely of your love, your time and your talents. (You both excelled at counting money!) Jean, I am so sorry for your loss. Wherever you are now living (perhaps still at Park Springs) I feel sure you have many friends, as well as family, to be with you at this time of grieving. My beloved Carroll died earlier this year on March 24th. It can be very lonely at times (covid-19 restrictions don’t help). As I am sure you will discover, family and friends are invaluable. May God grant you an abundance of peace and help you find some joy in every day!

  6. 1 Thessalonians 4: 13, 14

    Moreover, brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant* about those who are sleeping in death,+ so that you may not sorrow as the rest do who have no hope.+ 14 For if we have faith that Jesus died and rose again,+ so too God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in death through Jesus.+
