George Albert Foxwell III
George Albert Foxwell III, age 64, of Middletown, DE, passed away on Thursday, December 31, 2020 at Christiana Hospital with his loving wife by his side, just as she had always been ever since their relationship began 26 years ago.
Since he could do just about anything, George held many different jobs throughout his life. He drove trucks, worked construction, and ran his own auto repair business. He was a mechanic at Worthy Bros. for several years, and that is where he met his wife, Shirley. He most recently worked for 15 years as a Soils Technician for Tetra Tech. During his employment there, almost everyone he worked with, whether it was a coworker or a client, also became a friend.
George was an avid hunter and enjoyed deer hunting on his wife’s family farm in Felton, often with his brother, Mike. They even went to Michigan twice to hunt elk. And he loved anything to do with cars – the classic ones he owned were his pride and joy. He and his wife always enjoyed attending various car shows in the surrounding region.
George had been struggling with his health over the past few years. Those who were fortunate enough to have known him will not be surprised to learn that, up until the very end, he faced each new health challenge with the same strength, determination, and courage that he always exhibited in every aspect of his life.
George was a truly beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother, and will be dearly missed by all of his family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Margaret Foxwell. He is survived by his devoted wife, Shirley; daughter, April Foxwell (Ryan) and son, George Foxwell (Kelly); grandchildren, Claire Foxwell, Alice Delmatto, and James Delmatto; sisters, Linda Baczkowski (Harry) and Tina Murphy (Bob); brothers, Richard Proud and Michael Foxwell (Lorna); and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Also holding a special place in his heart were his longtime friends, the Mignogna family.
All services will be held privately.
