George Louis Krietemeyer, 62, of Dothan, AL, passed away on Monday, November 13, 2017, at his home.


George was born January 23, 1955, in Anthony, Florida. He attended North Marion High School in Anthony, FL, and he matriculated to the University of Florida. He obtained a degree in forestry and worked from 1979-2008 for Georgia Pacific. From 2008-2017, he worked as a partner for Krietemeyer Accounting.


George was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Dothan, a volunteer for FUMC Meals on Wheels, and a member and active alum of the Chi Phi fraternity. He was a lifetime member of the University of Florida’s University Athletic Association.


He is preceded in death by his father, Elmer Krietemeyer, his mother, Betty Krietemeyer-Whitesell, his step-father Jim Whitesell, and his brother, Edward Krietemeyer.


He is survived by his wife of thirty-five years, Libby Krietemeyer; his daughter Kimberly (Clay) Wilson of Tucker, GA; his son Stephen (Samantha) Krietemeyer of Dothan, AL; his step-sister Lee (Rick) Riley of Blythewood, SC; his step-brother Jim (Judy) Whitesell of Aiken, SC; and sister-in-law Patty Tootle of Reidsville, GA.


He is survived by nieces and nephews Jim (Julie) Whitesell and their children, Baxter and Shyla, of Aiken, SC; Jamie (Jim) Snelling of Lexington, SC; Alex (Jillian) Riley of Castle Hayne, NC; Jenna (Dan) Carson of Lexington, SC; and Sammie (Eric) Crane of Blythewood, SC.


He is survived by Florida tailgating buddies, namely Kelly (Sheryl) LaRosa, Jim (Jean) Colyer, Jim (Nadine) McPherson, Dave (Cindy) Davis, Karen Holland, and Steve (Linda) McCann.


George was an avid learner, an expansive traveler, a voracious reader, a dedicated fisherman, a cherished family member, and an outgoing friend. He had a passion for nature and wildlife. He was a surprise to everyone he met, and everyone he met felt welcomed into his life. He was an animated man who loved humor and conversation. His laugh will be forever engrained in the hearts of those who knew him.


Funeral services will be held at Sunset Memorial Funeral Home. Visitation will begin at Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 10:00 a.m., and the ceremony will begin at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions to Meals on Wheels at First United Methodist Church would be appreciated.

George and I landed on the UF campus AT THE SAME TIME and have been friends ever since. I didn't have a driver's license but he let me drive his car and I told him I could have driven better had I had on my glasses. The driving lesson stopped. He could be frustrating but he was a good guy. The empty seat in the Swamp is going to be hard to see. He was loved by so many! Maybe he can give his beloved Gators some extra help so they will be relevant again in all his buddies' lives. Love you forever! Apple Pie

I am very saddened to hear of George's passing. The obituary got it exactly right...George had a memorable laugh that is surely ingrained in my heart. Our days together at One Fraternity Row in Gainesville were wonderful times. I am sorry that I missed out on all the tailgating parties with George and our frat brothers, many of whom I haven't seen in decades. George was always a gentleman and will be sorely missed. My deepest sympathy to Libby and all his family.

I have many great memories of George, mostly from our time together in college, that over took my mind when I first learned that he had passed away. His unwavering friendship, his smile, his laugh, his voice and his way of simplifying things that had been made too complex all stand out to me when I think of George. Those memories will always be with me. My condolences to Libby and the rest of his family and friends.

George was one of the good ones and we are all heartbroken to hear of his passing. The family reunions will never be the same. His contagious laugh and dry sense of humor, telling stories around the pool are some of my favorite memories. We love you all and will keep you in our prayers.

I was very sadden with the passing of George.My fondest memories were the days at the fraternity house sitting on the rock, drinking beer,having a chew and solving all the worlds problems in our own way.After I had issues with my dorm at Murphy Hall, George invited me to move in with him at the Chi Phi house. I was just a pledge but he took me in and helped me through my freshman year. As we all know that was just George,a friend to all. I will miss the celebration of Georges life tomorrow but To Libby,his Family,all his Dear Friends and Brothers, May God comfort All. Peace be with you
