George A. Kirkbride, 58, of Navarre, after having fought a courageous 18-month battle against cancer, passed away peacefully on Wednesday afternoon, December 11, 2019. Born July 2, 1961, in Orrville, Ohio, a son to the late Albert and Leona Kirkbride, George graduated from Perry High School and had worked for EGR in Dalton. He loved his family and enjoyed getting together for family game nights, hunting and fishing with his brothers and nephews, and cheering on “that team up north” even in a house full of OSU fans! George was an avid bowler and softball player and always the life of the party.
