George Marion Rizer, age 81 of Chesterton, passed away on November 10, 2018, at his home.

He was born on October 30, 1937 in Porter, IN to Marion and Myrtle Rizer, both of whom preceded him in death.

On October 27, 1960, in Naha, Okinawa, he married Eiko Rizer, who survives in Chesterton.

He is also survived by his children: Mary (Rizer) and Joseph Troke of Alpharetta, GA, Susan Rizer of Valparaiso, IN, and Marion and Karin Rizer of Scottsdale, AZ; his grandchildren: Christopher and Brittany Troke of Oceanside, CA, Benjamin Troke of Vancouver, WA, Daniel Troke of Boulder, CO, Khalela El-Naggar lives in Fishers, IN, and Devon Rizer, Jorin Rizer, Tatum Rizer of Scottsdale, AZ; great-grandchildren, Jocelyn and Eliana Troke of Oceanside, CA; and by his siblings: Bob and Lorrayne Rizer of Chesterton, IN, Larry Rizer of LaPorte, IN, and Sue (Rizer) Oaks of Clinton, IN.

George’s greatest passion was taking excellent care of his family. He looked forward to spending time with his brothers, working on projects, and tinkering with anything that had a motor. He was also an avid reader, especially westerns and military thrillers.

Private family services will be held at a later date.
