December 27th, 2020

George Lester Needles Jr, 67, departed to his eternal rest on December 22.  George grew up in Aston, Pennsylvania and graduated from Sun Valley High School.  He worked as a truck driver, hauling freight all over the country, and locally in the later years of his career.

George loved Wildwood, especially playing in the arcade with his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.  He was a handyman, who enjoyed and assisted in many home renovation projects throughout the years.  He enjoyed practical jokes, Wawa coffee and his two beloved cats, Mandy and Chicken.

He was the son of the late George Lester and Eleanor Jane Needles, and was preceded in death by his loving daughter Dolores (Dobie) Liberato.

He is survived by his children, Gina Bradson (Liberato), Emily Burford (Mark), Elizabeth Batter (Andrew), George L. Needles III (Nicole), Lonna Needles; by his sisters Terry Collington, Bonnie Green and Nancy McCann (Bill); and by 11 grandchildren, several nieces, nephews, cousins, neighbors and friends.

Private Burial.  Memorial gifts may be made to Faith Community Church, 3515 Edgmont Ave, Brookhaven, PA 19015.

    George was a great neighbor and friend for over 15 years. Coffee on patio with good laughs leaves me great memories. He loved my cat and would bring her small toys. Always willing to help with any issue or project. His height complimented my vertically challenged height. George was a kind, gentle man with a good sense of humour. I will miss you my friend.
