George E. Saurman looks back at a life filled with adventure, beginning with his birth in Houston in 1926 and through his twilight years at a Pennsylvania retirement community.
Within a year of being born, his family moved to Baltimore before finding a permanent home in Pennsylvania, but it wasn’t long before they were immersed in the Great Depression. With Saurman’s father out of work, his mother supported the family as a hairdresser.
Saurman recalls being mentored by his grandfather, who taught the importance of living life according to the Ten Commandments and the Book of Proverbs. He also shares what it was like growing up as a boy in the 1930s and early 1940s.
With the arrival of World War II, he joined the Army and eventually went to basic infantry training. He served in the infantry for the duration of the war.
He’d have the great fortune to meet his future wife, Mary Elizabeth Ewen, at Ursinus College. They enjoyed a sixty-two year marriage and raised a wonderful family, and she supported him throughout his career as a businessman, borough councilman, as mayor of Ambler, and during his fourteen years as a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
