Chanute, Kansas

On April 30th, 1942, in Evansville Indiana, George Franklin Carlisle was born to T.D. Carlisle and Virginia Maraman Carlisle. The family resided on a small acreage farm before moving to Wichita, Kansas while George was a young boy. 


In Wichita, he graduated from Southeast High School in 1960. He started his aircraft career at Beech Aircraft in Wichita. George moved to Nashville, Tennessee for a short time before moving to Texas. While in Texas for over 40 years, he continued his career in Vought Aircraft Industries in Dallas, Texas as an Aircraft Manufacturing Engineer for 24 years.


 In his free time, he enjoyed bass fishing at Lake Fork in Texas, and hunting in Hill Country in Texas, and from 1975 to 1997 he did competitive motorcycle hill climbs around the United States. 


After his retirement in 2003, and moving to east Texas with his wife Connie, he volunteered with her at an animal organization for 11 years. George was a motorcycle enthusiast, had a great love for his country and respect for the military, was a cowboy at heart, and loved his pet fur babies. 


George passed away on March 13, 2024, at his home in rural Chanute Kansas surrounded by family.  


George was survived by his wife Connie of the home, a son Klee, and wife Katherine, stepdaughter Shelli and husband Scott, stepson Shane and wife Andrea, 8 grandchildren, one great-granddaughter, sister-in-law Anita, sister-in-law Karen and husband Dennis, nieces, nephews, family, and friends that he loved very much. Preceding him in death were his parents and brother Tom.
