George Francis Kohl, III, 77, of Casper, Wyoming died Monday, October 10, 2022.

George Kohl, III was born on September 26, 1945, to George F. Kohl Jr and Mildred V. Kohl. George was the second oldest of six children and was brought up in a strict Catholic household. George is survived by his sister Katherine (Anthony) Bylak, sister Mildred Jr (Russell) Palmer, brother Gregory (Julie) Kohl, nieces Kelly and Breanna Bylak, Victoria Moon, Gg, Julia and Jillian Palmer, and nephews Ryan Bylak, Eric Kohl and Grant Palmer, grandson Kevin (Liz) Bauer, grandson Brian (Irene) Bauer, his great grandchildren Brittney, David, Jack and Anthony Bauer, Aspyn Delay and Brooke Taylor, and stepson Dean (Jayme) Bauer. George was preceded in death by both of his parents, George Kohl Jr, and Mildred Kohl, as well as 2 brothers Graham and Brian Kohl and late wife Jean Kohl.

George will always be remembered for his love of learning. He attended Ripon College in Wisconsin. He was a member of the National Ski Patrol. He also waterskied for the Minocqua Bats Ski Club. He acquired six Associate degrees from the University of Wyoming through Casper College. He always spoke of returning to school to add more degrees to his collection. He studied English, History and Art through Casper College. George was an avid painter and was always working on multiple paintings at a time. George loved to write and was hoping to one day publish a novel he had began writing. He loved to sing and would always belt out in an Irish or German song, whenever given the chance.

George enjoyed teaching his great-grandchildren how to count in German. His love and compassion were felt by many close to him. George was a very smart man and loved sharing his knowledge with others. He enjoyed having conversations about anything and everything with anyone who would listen. He would always brag about his siblings and their families whenever he got the chance. His love for his family near or far was everlasting.

George was married twice during his life. His first marriage came in 1972 in Elmhurst, Illinois to Christine and came to an unfortunate end in 1979. After his divorce from his first wife, he decided to move to Wyoming to start over. George left behind a construction business he had ran in Chicago to move to Casper, Wyoming. Here in Casper, he met the love of his life, Jean Kohl. George married Jean in March 1986. George and Jean lived a happy life in Casper with Jean’s son, Dean and his wife, Jayme. Jean passed away in June 2011 from cancer and George continued to live with his stepson Dean and daughter-in-law Jayme.

In January 2022, George’s granddaughter-in-law, Liz, began to care for him as his legal guardian. He faced many health issues leading up to his death on October 10, 2022. George was always the sweetest person anyone would meet and the many nurses and doctors who cared for him over these past few years are appreciated more than they know! George will be greatly missed, by many.
