George Mason Bouillon
June 30, 1921 - December 19, 2021
-A child of the Depression and the last of 10 siblings. A first sergeant, Red Arrow Division in the Pacific theater WWII, Mason returned to his hometown of Litchfield, IL and his beloved wife to become a successful, respected businessman. Founder of The George Press, champion bowler, outstanding golfer and pool shark. He was the generous, loving, most adored father to Mark (Angela) Bouillon and Lisa (Tom) Uhlenbrock, grandfather to Tyler (Yolanda) Uhlenbrock, Hannah (Massey) Arnold, Sarah (Chaese) Strelz and David Bouillon and great grandfather to baby Mase Howard Arnold, who Mason was able to meet and hold for the first time at his 100th birthday party.
Mason was preceded in death on Sept 25, 2013, by his wife of 72 years, the “gorgeous, beautiful”, Eve Serafini Fox. The last thing she said to him before she slipped away was “Mason, open the door”. He has been watching for her to come back through ever since.
On Sunday, Dec.19, loved ones would come and go. Nurses quietly went about their rounds and he waited. Then at 9:08AM Eve came.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
Mason was the consummate gentleman. Honor him with consideration for others and a good Manhattan.
