June 18, 1936 - October 17, 2021
George Ronald Royer, 85, passed on October 17, 2021 peacefully surrounded by his loved ones. George was born on June 18, 1936 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania to Lucille and George Royer. He is survived by his daughter Heather Rudolph and son Eric Royer. He graduated from William and Mary with a Bachelors degree in Physics 1958, had a track scholarship and was a member of Phi Kappa Tau. He went on to get a Masters in Management Engineering from Rensselaer in 1959. After receiving his Masters, he joined the service and graduated Navy officer school at Newport Rhode Island and served from 1959-1962. He often shared stories of his time as a navigator on his ship using the stars to navigate their location. After George served in the military, he then moved to Toledo to study law and received a Juris Doctoris in 1966 from University of Toledo. He also had a graduate degree of Legal Letters from Case Western Reserve University. He was involved in politics in the 1970s serving as a trustee for Sylvania Township and as a board member for TARTA. George ran as a republican candidate for the following positions: Lucas County prosecuting attorney, United States Congress and State Senator. In his free time, he had a single engine pilot's license and enjoyed flying the local skies. He was also an avid runner and participated frequently in local road races winning his age group. George continued to run up into his eighties. He can be described as a nonconformist and unconventional, never taking worry about what others thought of him. He spoke assertively and made a point to let you know exactly how he felt. He instilled in his children a love for all living creatures; the importance of caring for your body and mind and working hard for what you want. He was admired for his work ethic and dedication to his law firm. He was rarely known to smile but his daughter knew how to make him laugh. A celebration of life will be held Saturday, February 5, 2022. Visitation will be from 1:00-3:00pm. Service will be at 3:00 p.m. with a Masonic Service, at the Coyle Funeral Home, 1770 S.
