In memory of
George L. Blaney
BLANEY GEORGE L. passed away peacefully at the age of 79 on December 22, 2016 with his three sons by his side. George was born in Detroit on February 28, 1937 to Victor and Ethel Blaney. Beloved husband of the late Joyce for 55 years. George is survived by his sons Gregg (Char), Jeffrey (Doris), Adam (Kelly), and grandchildren Rob, Nicole, Kayla and Alex. George is also survived by his brother John (Susan) Blaney, along with many friends, colleagues and students. George was a longtime resident of Sterling Heights, Michigan and Cape Coral, Florida and enjoyed spending many summers at his cottage in Manistee, Michigan where he and his late wife Joyce had many friends. George flourished as both an educator and administrator in the Detroit Public and Berkley School Systems for over 40 years. George took pride in putting his students first and took great joy in seeing them flourish. George carried the same outlook he had on life into his relationships with his family and many friends. His quick wit, huge heart and sage advice will be sorely missed, however, never forgotten. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Gazebo Banquet Center located at 31104 Mound Rd. Warren, Michigan 48092 on January 20, 2017 between 1-5 PM. Memorial tributes are encouraged to the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute in lieu of flowers.
