George was a son, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin, neighbor, and friend who was loved very much. He was a gentle soul with a kind heart who grew up the youngest of five brothers and a sister.

He was employed by Kmart for many years as well as running his own business, delivering the Daily News, Pittsburgh Press and the Tribune Review.

In his spare time George was an accomplished artist. He drew many portraits of people he knew, including self-portraits as well as many other subjects.

George was an avid coin collector, a huge Star Wars fan and over the years loved his pet dogs Rusty, Opie, Buck, Max, and especially Riley, his last dog.

George is survived by brothers, James (Laurie) Buches of Pittsburgh, David (Susan) Buches of Middletown, DE, Thomas (Dana) Buches of Greensburg and Timothy (Tammie) Buches of Fort Gay, WV.
