George F. Wickizer (Bill) 92, Binghamton, went to be with the Lord unexpectedly Monday, February 9, 2015. He was predeceased by his wife of 72 years, Elizabeth. He is survived by his children; son, Brent (Kay) Wickizer, Binghamton; daughter, Lori (Dale) Loomis, Vestal; his five grandchildren, Eric (Hope) Wickizer, Apalachin; David (Kimberly) Lee, Virginia, Mary (Ron) Ford, Nevada, Amy Wickizer, Binghamton, Chad (Victoria) Lee, North Carolina and by his six great-grandchildren, Collin Wickizer, Sydney and Isabel Lee, Gavin Ford, Jaccob and Caiden Lee. He was also survived by his best friend, Angelo Ranieri. (We thank you Angelo for all you’ve done for our dad). Our dad remained very active right up until the time of his death, he belonged to his beloved Greene Rod & Gun Club, where he had many friends and continued to trap shoot weekly. He belonged to a bowling league, and had poker nights with his buddies. He was a tool and die maker most of his life before becoming Broome County’s sealer of weights and measures. Our father was loved by many and had more friends than you can count. Dad left us a legacy of ethics, values, honesty and integrity.
