Eight Bells... George Peet

Published on 6/25/2019

It is with sadness that we share the passing of George M. Peet on Wednesday, June 19th. 

George was part of the Boyne City Yacht Club, Fleet 512 of the Michigan District. He loved skiing and sailing as well as coaching and teaching both in the northern Michigan community. Apart from the activities themselves, George’s favorite past-time was meeting new people and trying to figure if he already somehow knew them or could possibly make some type of connection to them. He always talked to everyone and seemed to know someone everywhere he went!

A dozen Lightnings, racing and drifting on Lake Charlevoix June 22nd, served as backdrop for George’s celebration of life, and his spirit was with them as they negotiated roundings and crossings.  His passing was acknowledged with a moment of silence before Saturday’s evening meal.  A few reflected on the passing of friends and lives well-lived, as the sun set over the lake.


Farewell, George Peet.
