George S. Cheresnowsky
When tomorrow starts without me, try to understand, an angel came and called my name, then took me by the hand... George S. Cheresnowsky, 92, of Nichols went home to be with his Lord and was reunited with his wife, Marguerite, on Saturday, October 13, 2012. George is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Roselyn and Robert Lindhorst of Nichols; his grandchildren, Monica Babcock and Randy Lindhorst, both of Waverly; great-grandchildren, Dylan, Milena and Craig; sister and brother-in-law, Dorothy and Harry Paterson of Ridgebury, PA; sister-in-law, Rebecca Newman of Owego; several nieces, nephews and their families also survive.

George was born on May 10, 1920 in Sayre, PA, a son of the late Onufry and Paraska Cheresnowsky. He attended school in Sayre and at the age of 23, George joined four of his brothers and proudly served in the US Air Force during WWII. On September 6, 1945, George married Marguerite L.
