George Loveland, 78, passed away Friday, November 23, 2018. He was born December 5, 1939 in Tulsa, OK, the son of the late Jack and Helen Dunn Loveland. After WWII, his family moved to Dallas, where he attended Jesuit High School and then enrolled at Texas A&M University in the Class of 1961 which became his lifelong identity. He was a class agent for almost 50 years, wrote and recited the class history at reunions much to the enjoyment of former classmates and beyond. After graduating from Texas A&M, George was commissioned into the Army and served for six years.

In 1965 he married Patsy Sellmeyer, and they were blessed with two sons, John and Lance. He spent his career as an investment advisor. George enjoyed organizing and coaching little league football. His hobbies were hunting and fishing. George loved to travel in the US and Europe and was a WWII buff. His trademark was always having a can of Diet Dr. Pepper in his hand, his adult beverage of choice for 54 years.

In 1997, he and Patsy moved from Dallas to Colorado Springs where they thoroughly enjoyed the mountain life. In 2011, Aggieland beckoned and lured him back for “all things Aggie”, from sporting events, Former Student activities to the making and renewal of friendships. He was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Center and supported the Corps of Cadets, Former Students Assoc. and the Veterans’ Resource Center at Texas A&M University.

Survivors include his wife Patsy; son, John and his wife Amanda and their children, Josephine, William, and Grant; son, Lance and his wife Kimberly and their children, Makena and Lawson; one brother, John Patrick Loveland ’60; and many family loved ones.

Lots of fond memories of George. A Gung Ho Texas Aggie. Class of '61 Agent Emeritus, Organizer of reunions, mini reunions, football parties, parties in College Station, San Antonio and elsewhere, and Traveling Aggie trips all over the world. A family man with a large and loving family. George is in a better place now, and he earned that place. He will be missed on earth by many. Our condolences to Patsy and the rest of the Loveland family. You are in our prayers.

George was a great Texas Aggie friend and Classmate'61. As our Class agent from the time we graduated until his passing he was a loyal Aggie and the keeper of the history of our times at Texas A&M from 1957 through graduation in 1961 and beyond. As Class President I worked closely with George and Tom Reid, our other Class Agent, from the beginning on Reunions and other affairs our Class was required to take care of through the years. George and Tom were both very dedicated to our Class and kept us all well informed on things we needed to know about our University and Class happenings. They both were dedicated to the Corps of Cadets as all of us were and helped us raise over $610,000 as our Class gift after 50 years to help maintain the spirit and needs of Texas A&M well into the future. His devotion to Patsy and their family was a priority with him! He will be missed by many.
May god bless his soul, his wife Patsy and their family.

I remember some wonderful times with George. He and I went on many fishing trips together while we were both working for IBM in Houston and later after we both moved to Dallas. One of our best times was when George and his wife Patsy joined my wife, also named Patsy and me on a fishing trip to Beaver Lake in Arkansas. George was a great friend.

George was a great guy, loved his family, and was a respected investment professional. He shared his personal insights with me when we worked together at White Weld. He inspired me to change my life, for which I will always be grateful.

During my days at TAMC, I remember George as a fun loveing, disciplined leader of our 1961 class. George was an outstanding example of a true Aggie. He represented the class of 1961 superbly. Rest in peace my good friend . RAM

A unique friendship that developed in Dorm 14 would remain for all these years.
Although we didn't see each other very often, occasionally we would have phone conversations that would last over an hour. I am sad to hear of his crossing over. If one is lucky, one has some few friends that every memory of them brings a smile. George was one of those friends to me.
Patsy, I send prayer arrows 🏹🏹🏹🏹 for you and the family.
