George Taylor Morford Jr. of Vestal passed peacefully October 25th 2019 at Mercy House surrounded by family. He was predeceased by his beloved Helen Marie, wife of 57 years. He is survived by his children, Karen (Randy) Templeman of Vestal, Edward Morford of Illinois, and David (Cindy) Morford of Binghamton; grandchildren Susan (Colt) Brumm of Barneveld NY, Steven Templeman of Vestal, Michael Morford of Austin TX, and Lea (Darren) Hackey of Billings MT; two great grandsons; and brother-in-law Edward (Kathie) Winckler of Apalachin. George was born in Middletown NJ in 1931, graduated from Monmouth College, and from Syracuse University where he met his future wife. His college career was interrupted when he was drafted to serve in the Korean War. Helen and George were married in 1952 just before he deployed. After he returned, they settled in Endicott where George began his career at IBM. He was an avid gardener, Syracuse Orange and Yankee fan and loved to relax on his deck with his wife and family. Affectionately known as "Pop", his grandchildren and great grandchildren brought him so much joy. Pop charmed everyone he met, where ever he went.
