George C. Morse Jr, also affectionately called GG and Homer, a lifelong resident of Winchester, passed away unexpectedly on March 17, 2023, from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.
George was born a son to George C. Morse Sr. and Wendy L. Morse (Frazier) on February 27, 1975, in Keene, NH. He was educated locally and graduated from Thayer High School Class of 1993.
George had most recently worked as a machine tender for the Soundview Paper Mill in Putney, VT. Prior to his employment there, he worked as a tow truck driver and mechanic for his father’s garage J&G’s Service for 30 years. He took pride in his work there and considered it a highlight of his life. George was always a hard worker and helped people whenever they needed it.
When He wasn’t working, he could be found outdoors. He loved to spend his free time as an adult much like he did growing up. He was always full of energy and excelled at his hobbies. You could find him snowmobiling, fishing, camping, playing horseshoes, joy riding, riding motorcycles and going off-road jeeping. He loved driving and also racing. He raced at Monadnock Speedway when he was younger. He enjoyed spending time in Pittsburgh, NH., and the White Mountains. He was a fan of baseball and Nascar his whole life and watched the Red Sox and races when he could.
George’s laugh and smile were contagious and he passed that on to all of his children. He lived for his family, his children and his grandson Greysen. He loved spending time with them as often as he could. He was also looking forward to the birth of his second grandchild this spring.

Morse of Newfane VT and grandson Greysen A. Dingman of Winchester. He is also survived by his father, George C. Morse Sr. of Winchester and brother Geoffrey E. Morse of Winchester.
