Robert George Brunow, originally from Berlin Heights, Ohio, passed away on Friday afternoon at his home in Edmond, Oklahoma.
George was born in 1946 in Sandusky, Ohio. He was a 1966 graduate of Firelands High School and served in the Vietnam Conflict from 1966 to 1968. George married his wife of 48 years, Barbara, in 1975.
