Obituary For George J. Nader

George J. Nader

George J. Nader, 1925-2021, 96 years old! Imagine what he experienced in his lifetime! He was the son of hard working immigrant parents.
At 18, after graduating from Altoona High School, he joined the army and fought in WW II, and lucky for us, after earning 3 purple hearts and a bronze star, survived.
Our Dad was a man of integrity, was respectful of others and honest. His life lessons were and are so appreciated.
He is survived by 3 children: Stephen Nader (Joanne Dunn), Cindy Bossi (Christopher Bossi), and Thayne Nader.
There will be no service, but his life will be celebrated. He had a good run!

Arrangements are provided by the E. Merrill Smith Funeral Home, 2309 Broad Ave., Altoona, Pa. 16601.
Condolences may be made at or Stevens Family Funeral Homes’ Facebook page.

    Jim and I would like to offer our sincere condolences to George's family. Jim regarded George as a friend and although I didn't know him well, I found him to be delightful. Always quick with a laugh and a quip. I'm sure he did have a good run but he will be missed! Jim and Jan Kinney
