George was born June 13, 1935 to Howard and Louise Root in Kettle Falls, Washington, graduated in Spokane from John Rodgers High School in 1953. Married Peggy in 1956 and had 3 children. George was in the grocery business, was assistant manager and manager at many stores through the years. Owned Mead Market from 1972 to 2004.

George liked sports – football and basketball, and being on his computer.

I would like to thank Deaconess Hospital 11th floor for taking such good care of George for 2 weeks. I won’t forget their kindness.

George is survived by his wife Peggy, sons Paul Root, Spanaway, Wa, and Robert Root, Spokane, Wa, brothers Delbert Root, Spokane, Wa, and John Root, Sequim, Wa, sisters Frances Garrett, Kent, Wa, and Ruby Dykes, Spokane, Wa, as well as 10 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his daughter Connie Schumacher, brother Edward Root, and sister Betty Grendahl.

There will be a memorial held for George at a later date.
