He was a member of St. Croix Lodge #46 A.F. & A.M. and Anah Temple Shriners. George enjoyed hunting, fishing, going for car rides, but above all, spending time with his grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, George was predeceased by his three brothers, Joseph, Philip and Arthur. Surviving are his loving wife of 51 years, Patricia McCoubrey; three children, Sherri Reynolds and husband Robert of Calais, William McCoubrey and wife Karen of New Hartford, CT, and Carl McCoubrey of Calais; four grandchildren, Ashley Reynolds of Brewer, Emily Reynolds of Calais, and Liam and Kian McCoubrey of New Hartford, CT; his sister, Susan Dooley and husband Richard of Baileyville; two brothers, Charles McCoubrey and wife Linda of Calais, and Lee McCoubrey and wife Ning of Philippines; sister-in-law KumCha McCoubrey of Calais; and several nieces and nephews.
