In Memoriam — George Graves


Due to challenging health issues, George Graves, 59, recently passed away.

Graves co-founded G.S. Manufacturing in 1985 with his wife, Susan.  The international manufacturing operation designs and produces laundry carts for the institutional, health care, and hospitality laundry industry. Company reins have since been passed down to his daughter, Cathy Ballow and his brother, Arthur Graves.

Described as adventurous, playful and generous; a doting father and irrepressibly indulging grandfather, Graves was a tender-hearted man whose greatest joys include his wife, nature and friends and family.  He will be missed by many.

Graves is survived by his wife Sue, his children, Cathy (Cory), Laurie (Andrew), and Peter (Danuta), his grandchildren Tia, Logan, Adam, Eli, and nieces, nephews and siblings.
