George E. Domer, 96, Lewisburg

PARADISE — George Edward Domer, the adopted son of Lee Roy and Jennie (Charnock) Domer, was born on April 23, 1916. The family lived in Jenners, Somerset County, until 1923 when they moved to South Williamsport.  

A move to Kulpmont meant that George was in the first graduating class at Kulpmont High School in 1934.  

A job with PP&L brought him to Milton. He later worked at the Federal Penitentiary and numerous businesses throughout the area.

The greatest interest of his life was antique cars, and his expertise in this area was widely known and appreciated. When hearing of his passing, a contemporary wrote,“ A wealth of knowledge is gone.”

A thirty-year correspondence with His Honor King Michael of Romania started because George was knowledgeable about “Jeeps,” and the King loves them.

He wrote articles for “Automobile Quarterly” and “Old Cars Weekly,” for which he used the pen name Annteek.  

George was founder of the Kaiser Frazer Club. He was also instrumental in helping to start the Susquehannock and Shikellemy Region AACA clubs. In addition, he was a member of the Studebaker Drivers Club, Hudson Terraplane Essex Club, and the Avanti Owners Club.

In 1970 he married Jo Stoner Rubincam, who had been his sweetheart at a Methodist Church Camp when they were teenagers.  They bought the school house at Paradise and made it their home.  She was the love of his life. Until her death in 2002, he was a faithful and patient caregiver during her long illness.

George is survived by two stepchildren, Beatrice Heid, of Lewisburg and Irvin Rubincam, of Toronto, Canada; seven stepgrandchildren,  Mark Heid, Laura Turnbull, Jen Drouin, Ellie and Anna Rubincam, Clara and Liz Naysmith; and nine stepgreat-grandchildren. Important friends in his life were Rachel, Phil, and Zach Cawley of New Columbia and Wayne Weaver of Turbotville.

A memorial service is planned for  11 a.m. Saturday, March 16 at the Paradise United Church of Christ.

The family is being assisted by the Dominick T. Adamo Funeral Home, Mifflinburg.
