One thought on “George W. Couch

  1. George Couch was a good friend of my father’s, James Cavender. They stayed in touch and visited one another for the remainder of their lives after the war. I noticed that there was not a lot of information for him and I wanted to share his obituary.

He was born September 23, 1925 in Beech Bottom, WV., the son of the late George K. and Bertha Young Couch. George was a member of the Teamsters; a retired drive with Town and Country Dairy; he worked for the Wheeling Park Commission in golf course maintenance. He was a US Marine Corps veteran of WWII. He was a Christian. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Ruth Irene Adams Couch; a son, George Bruce Couch; several brothers and sisters.
