DR. GEORGE E. KONOLD, D.O., 84, died on April 12, 2014, from cardiac arrest following a partial foot amputation due to Type 2 Diabetes. George always had a smile on his face and joke to tell. His best quality was that he always made people feel good. Not just because he was a doctor, but also because he was an optimistic person who always had something nice or funny to say. Perhaps it’s because he loved God and enjoyed spreading joy. He sang in the church choir as a boy and was a member of three Episcopal churches, where he served as lay reader and on the charter Vestry of St. Edwards in Columbus, OH. George was born March 15, 1930, in Warren, OH, the youngest of three children. He attended Bowling Green State University and graduated with one degree in Spanish and another in Chemistry. He received his medical degree from the College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery, in Des Moines, IA, and graduated tops in his class. He interned at Doctors Hospital, where he rose to Chief of Staff and served on the Board of Trustees, and had a pleasant family practice on E. Main St. in Bexley, OH. He served as team physician for Eastmoor High School for 15 years where he had watched Archie Griffin blossom into a great tailback. He actually wrote a letter to Woody Hayes, then coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes, to suggest he take a look at Archie. He was at Ohio Stadium, having served as a portal usher in 11C for over 25 years, to see Archie’s two Heisman award-winning seasons. He was a Rotarian and belonged to all Masonic Bodies including the Eastern Star, and enjoyed being a Shriner and helping children. He loved golf and was a member of four country clubs. His wife, Buddy, turned him on to golf thanks to a grocery store promo giving away free clubs. It quickly became the family game, and has been ever since. He was a master gardener and grew “award-winning tomatoes.” He loved to fly planes, having earned up to his instrument’s license, and was a senior aviation medical examiner for the FAA. He was preceded in death by his high school sweetheart and wife of 50 years, Angeline “Buddy” Scarpaci Konold of Warren, OH; his parents George and Elizabeth; his sister, Betsy; his brother-in-law, James Reynolds; and his brother-in-law, Paul Yannacey. He is survived by his sister, Kate Reynolds; his beloved companion, Sally Donnor; three sons and daughters-in-law, George and Sharon Konold of Pinellas Park, FL, Bob Konold and Lisa López of Western Springs, IL, and Dan and June Konold of Canal Winchester, OH; former daughter-in-law, Becky Konold of Columbus, OH; seven grandchildren: Brittany Perniciaro (Jordan), and Stephanie, Victoria, Alexandra, Anthony, Anna and Sara Konold; step-grandchildren, Brandy Diehl (Todd), Shane Wolfe (Jessica); great-granddaughter, Angelina Konold; and six step-great-grandchildren. He will be interred beside wife Buddy at Calvary Episcopal Church, 1615 First Street, Indian Rocks Beach, FL 33785, after a 10 a.m. memorial service on Saturday, May 3rd. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Central Ohio Diabetes Association in his name, 1100 Dennison Avenue, Columbus, OH, 43201, where he once served as their Medical Director.

I was saddened by the memoriam in the " D.O. Journal " regarding your father's death. George was a class ahead of me at DCOM. Always full of life and excitement with an extended helping hand. He collected our lab coats and had them laundered.. When I started practice his referrals got me through some challenging times. RIP C.F.Libell D.O.

Dr. Dan, I first met your father at your house a few years ago. He always put a smile on my face. He was always the life of the party. Everytime I was around him (usually at dinner) I wanted to sit next to him. My world is a better place because I got to meet him and listen to his stories of wisdom. I am sure many will miss him but even more will never forget him!

George and Buddy were good golf friends to Judy and me in Florida. We will miss his presence as we have missed Buddy. No more visits to water the Buddy tree on the 14th and no more George at the book club!! Rest in peace. Condolences to the family.

Your dad was so kind and sweet with always a smile on his face. He treated us for backaches and colds and we actually liked going to see him. May he rest in peace and know how he influenced so many by his kindness.

I had the opportunity to meet Dr. Konold for the first time at George and my cousin, Sharon's wedding. He was a nice and spirited person. May God strengthen each family member, because I know that their hearts are heavy. Take care.

Growing up you were one of my favorite uncles (we had so many good ones). I'll always remember you laughing, joking and enjoying life to the fullest. Your family will miss you until we all meet again in Heaven. Give my mom and dad a hug for me. Love you, Uncle Georgie.
