I noticed on the MTFCI site George passed away yesterday at 91 yrs old, all of us who have toured with him over the last 30 years or so will miss his great smile and attitude. He hardly ever missed any tour, we are sure he is with his wife, Bud Scudder and many others telling them what they have missed. God Bless you Mr George Coons. He was a member of the Nokin T Club.

His wife, Rosa died in a model T accident, with a modern car, a few years ago.

George Coons was one of the originators of the Hoosier Model T Club. It recently joined the MTFCA.

I remember those old timers from when I was a teenager in the late 1950's - George Coons, Art Ridgeway, John Smith, Dick Alexander, Marlow Hinkle to mention a few.

They're all gone now, George was the last.

RIP all of them.

It was a priviledge to know George. I have only known him for a few years but it was always a pleasure to talk to him. He will surely be missed.

Here is the funeral home website and obituary.

We were with George and Mark on December 4th and I thought he looked good and was having a great time at the Noken T Christmas party. My understanding is he died of pnemonia.
Note that he died on his birthday.
We will miss him on the many tours he attended. Kuddos to Mark and the rest of the family for making sure he got to attend the many tours after his stroke.
Tom

We are going to miss George. Here he is in his 1911 during the summer of 2008 on a Nokin T's tour.

We will miss his smile and warm handshake that we got every time we saw him. We did not know him well, but the time we shared with him will be cherished. We will keep his family in our prayers at this very difficult time. Just remember to enjoy life until the last breath, as we're sure George did.
