George M. Peet (71) of Boyne City, died Wednesday June 19, 2019. George Passed away peacefully at home after facing a few tough years of serious health problems including kidney failure and lymphoma. George began his career at Peet Packing Company in Chesaning Michigan and worked as a sales executive in the food industry for the majority of his life. He absolutely loved skiing and sailing as well as coaching and teaching both in the northern Michigan community. Apart from the activities themselves, George’s favorite past-time was meeting new people and trying to figure if he already somehow knew them or could possibly make some type of connection to them. He always talked to everyone and seemed to know someone everywhere he went!

Surviving George is his wife, Kathy (Barnwell) Peet; sons, George H. Peet of Harbor Springs; Harley Peet (Spencer Carroll) of Easton, Maryland; stepchildren, Kate (Tony) Sanders of Stanton; Shelly (Denny) Brya of Petoskey; Sarah Ries (Vance Reusch) of Petoskey; Brooke (Aaron) Snacker of Petoskey; sisters, Barbara (Tom) Maier of Pittsboro, North Carolina; Cyndy (Mark) Hunt of Atlantis, Florida; step-grandchildren, Keisha Thomas of Belmont; Drew Sanders of Belmont; Morgan Sanders of Stanton; Ava Petersen of Petoskey; Lily Brya of Petoskey; Hayden Brya of Petoskey; Reese Snacker of Petoskey; step great granddaughter, Harper Thomas of Belmont and many great friends.
George was preceded in death by his parents, Millis & Betty (Haller) Peet; nephew, Spencer Hunt and stepdaughter, Tracy Ries.

A celebration of George’s life is being held on Saturday, June 22nd from 2-4 PM at the Peninsula Beach Park in Boyne City (310 Front Street).

Had the pleasure of sailing with George in 2015 at Tawas. A true gentleman and great sport. My condolences on your loss. I am happy to have spent time with him!

I enjoyed my time working at the Stable with George and doing workouts with the ski team at HHS back in the late '90s. He was kind and could always be counted on for a hearty laugh, a colorful story, or a strong opinion about Denny McLain.

George and I were best friends growing up on Gysin Court. While I will miss him I would like to share one of my favorite stories ( there are many) George had just got a Pram sailboat. It was in the garage and he and I decided to paint it. The color scheme was red hull and white interior. Fast forward we spilled both gallons of paint that were inside the sailboat. Now we had pink and decided that was what the color was ultimately to be. Along the way the garage floor also became pink. About that time Millis drove in. Those who knew Millis can guess what happened next!
The picture I posted has George in the middle with myself to his right and Jean Boyden to his left. That is our mothers in back. Many birthdays were celebrated together as George's is the 23rd and mine the 25th. Fair winds my friend.
