George "Curly" Juby, 87, of Port Clinton, passed away Saturday morning, March 15, 2008, in Magruder Hospital in Port Clinton.
He was born Feb. 2, 1921, in Lakeside, the son of the late John and Anna (Butchko) Juby. George owned and operated City Bakery in Port Clinton from 1960 until his retirement in 1992.
Earlier in life, George worked for Curtiss-Wright Aircraft Co. in Buffulo, N.Y. There he worked on B-17s and other aircraft during World War II.

George will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
