George "Joe" Burger

George Joseph Burger, 90, of Hagerstown, MD, passed away Saturday, May 27 at Williamsport Retirement Village.

Born on December 31, 1932, in Hagerstown, MD, he was the son of George Edward Burger and Frances May Null. In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by his sister, Patricia (Patsy), and grandson Zachary Burger.

He enjoyed steamed crabs, racquetball, tennis, dancing, listening to bluegrass music and attending bluegrass shows. He enjoyed roller coasters. In fact, he took his last ride last summer at the age of 89! He was a gifted storyteller and could make folks laugh at his jokes and quips. He was a hardworking man with many talents.
