George T. Meindl, 88, of Pinehurst, passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 22, 2023 at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst.
George was born in Pittsburgh, PA on December 2, 1934, to the late Frank and Margaret Kerin Meindl.
George earned his Bachelor of Science from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA and his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Pittsburgh Medical School. He met his wife Mary while in medical school and they married on August 8, 1959. After medical school, George completed an internship in Internal Medicine at Georgetown University. He then proudly served his country in the United States Navy as a Lieutenant JG on the submarine tender the U.S.S. Orion. Following his discharge and a return to Pittsburgh, George began his medical career in General Practice and later specialized in Radiology. Most of his medical career was spent at The Washington Hospital in Washington, PA. He and his wife retired to Pinehurst in October, 1998. George was a history aficionado who read voraciously and was especially knowledgeable about war-time history. He had a near photographic memory, a sharp wit and winning any trivia challenge against him was impossible. He enjoyed hunting, camping and golfing. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather whose presence will be forever missed.
George leaves to cherish his memory, his beloved wife of 63 years, Mary Meindl; two daughters, Barbara Stegall (Bryan) and Beverly Flanagan (Brendan); four grandchildren, Thomas Stegall, Owen Flanagan, Anne Stegall, and Audrey Flanagan; and one great-grandchild, Aiden DeShields.
In addition to his parents, George was preceded in death by his brother Joseph Louis Meindl.
A funeral mass will be held on Friday, May 5 at 9 a.m. at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, 160 E. Vermont Avenue, Southern Pines, NC 28387. Interment following the funeral mass will be private.
