George L. Coombs

December 4, 1957 — February 20, 2024

Schuyler, New York

George Leroy Coombs Jr., a man with a twinkle in his eye and a wrench in his hand, passed away peacefully on February 20th, 2024 at the age of 66. 

Born and raised in Amesbury, Massachusetts on December 4, 1957, he spent his youth cruising down backroads on motorcycles and tinkering in the garage, a passion that stayed with him throughout his life.

Friends and strangers alike will have agreed on George's mischievous spirit and his gift for gab, where he could strike up conversations with anyone and leave them feeling like lifelong friends. But his greatest joy came later, surrounded by the laughter of his six grandchildren: Oliver, Alexander, Daniel, Olivia, Liliana, and Aaliyah. The grandchildren often teased their playful "Grampy," calling him “Grumpy,” knowing he was anything but! George was always up for an adventure, whether it was camping, rebuilding an antique car, fixing up his new house, or riding his beloved Harley Davidson through country roads (a hobby he shared with his son Daniel and several of his long-time and childhood friends).

George's legacy lives on in the hearts of his son, Daniel Coombs and his wife Megan of Frankfort, NY; his daughter Allison of Manchester, NH; his sisters, Christine Jones (and her husband Jeff) and Sharon Malone of Deerfield, NH; and many other loving family members and friends. He was a practical joker, a skilled mechanic, and a true family man who will be deeply missed.

There are no services.  Arrangements are under the direction and care of the locally/family owned Mohawk Valley Funerals and Cremations, 7507 State Route 5, between Little Falls and St. Johnsville, 315-508-5131. A celebration of life is being planned for spring 2024 in the Amesbury, Massachusetts area.
