George A. Rentfrow, August 15th, 1944 – July 22nd, 2022, passed away while recovering from surgery in Kansas City, Kansas at the age of 77. George passed in the company of Anna (Peters) Rentfrow, his beloved wife, and his son, Brad Rentfrow. He is preceded in death by his father, Floyd Rentfrow (1967) and mother, Frances (Mariott) Rentfrow (2000). He is also survived by his daughter-in-law, Jen Houston (Brad).
George was born and raised in Trenton, Missouri, having graduated from Trenton High School in 1962. He began teaching and met fellow faculty member and his soon to be wife, Anna, in Blakesburg, Iowa in 1966. They were married in Canton, Missouri in 1968 and celebrated 54 years of marriage together.
After earning a Masters’ Degree in Counseling from Northeast Missouri State University in 1975, George continued his working years in endeavors that helped others – teaching, coaching, counseling, and founding and leading a small business in the Kansas City area.
A devoted husband and father, George worked diligently to become a man of many talents, as throughout his life he enjoyed playing golf, playing the guitar, learning the art of watercolor painting, and fixing whatever needed to be fixed around the house or at the office.
While George always worked hard to do his best, he never took himself too seriously. He was known for his kind, outgoing personality and his sense of humor, quickly becoming a favorite amongst the ICU nurses at the hospital where he spent his final days. He frequently caught those around him off guard with his quick wit, and always seemed to have the right words at the right time for any situation.
A visitation will be held at Speaks Suburban Chapel, 18020 E. 39th Street S, Independence, MO at 1 p.m. on Saturday, August 6th, followed by a service at 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to the First United Methodist Church of Blue Springs, or the First Tee of Greater Kansas City.
