Born August 29, 1960, in Baltimore, MD, he was the son of the late Charles Sr. & Doris (Strawsburg) Diehl.  George was the loving husband of Judy A. (Smith) Diehl since August 9, 2013, but in total they shared 25 years together.

George loved working on his classic truck- a 1946 Chevrolet, being outdoors, and working in the yard, including working with his Kubota backhoe.  In his spare time, he would also tinker around in the garage and go for walks with his wife.  Some other activities that that he enjoyed were camping, playing cards, tennis, volleyball & baseball, and watching western movies. 

In addition to his wife, Judy, George is survived by his son Joseph M. Diehl of Gettysburg (Bonneauville) and his stepdaughter Virginia Wonder of Gettysburg.  He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Cameron Diehl, Ethan Diehl, and Ryan Diehl, his brothers Charles Diehl, Jr. & wife Arlene, and Roger Diehl, both of Taneytown, MD, a sister Mary Franks & husband Russell of Manchester, MD, and his sister-in-law Ruth Diehl.  George was preceded in death by his brother Robert Diehl, Sr., and his sister Joyce Diehl.
