RETIRED COLONEL REUBEN FRAHN KONTAR GEORGE

SUNRISE: FEBRUARY 7, 1933
SUNSET: NOVEMBER 12, 2009.

It is with deep sorrow that the George, Caulcrick, Hill and Brown families announce the home-going of our beloved Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, Cousin, and Friend, Retired Colonel Reuben Frahn Kontar George.

This sad event occurred on November 12, 2009 @ The John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital, Monrovia, Liberia.

DADDY, BLACK CAR, CHIEF GEORGE, UNCLE REUBEN, BOB GEORGE, PA GEORGE, MR. GEORGE, PAPAY OR FATHER GEORGE as he was affectionately called, was a Prince, Servant and Leader among men and he lived his life accordingly. He has fought the good fight, he has finished his course, and he has kept the faith; therefore, is laid up for him a crown of righteousness which the Lord the righteous judge shall give him on that great getting up morning!

The late RTD.COL. Reuben F. George served his country and community faithfully and was distinguished for his discipline, honesty, authority, strict-forwardness and undemanding personalities.

He will be remembered for his unenviable career as a distinguished Security Expert and disciplinarian.
Upon completing advanced and professional security training in Akron, Ohio and Washington,DC respectively in the USA from 1966-1970, under the sponsorship of the Firestone Plantations Company in Harbel, Liberia; the late Chief George became the first black Chief of the Firestone Plant Protection Department (PPD) in Harbel, Liberia from 1972-1985. He succeeded his Canadian boss and mentor the late George Robert Tomalin (G.R.T.). Chief George was honorably retired from Firestone in 1985.

In 1988, Colonel George was asked by the Leadership Team @ the Ministry of Finance to reorganize and head the Anti-Fraud Division as Director. He served with distinction until he asked to be retired in 1996 honorably.

Chief George was a member of the first graduating class of The Liberian National Police Training Academy and also a product of the Booker Washington Institute in Kakata, Margibi County.

The late RTD.COL.Reuben Frahn Kontar George is survived by his children: Mardea George-Bryant, Patience George-Sieh, Fran Othello George, St. Tomalin Nyenwolo George, I., Vivian George-Freeman, Veronica Saywear George, Ophelia George-Campbell, Rev.
