The following obituary appeared in this weeks edition of the Suffolk Times which is a weekly serving the North Fork of Long Island:

George H. Maber

George H. Maber of Southold, 92, died on Feb. 2, 2005 at Eastern Long Island Hospital in Greenport. Mr. Maber, a retired supervisor with CBS in New York City, was born in London, England, on June 2, 1912 to William and Agnes (Robinson) Maber. Before moving to the North Fork, he resided in Garden City with his wife (nee Graham).
Predeceased by his wife, Mr. Maber is survived by his sister, Beatrice Sinclair of Devon, England and two nieces.
A private service was held on Feb. 4 with arrangements by DeFriest-Grattan funeral home, Southold.

As a personal note I remember George Maber and can picture him in my mind. He is listed in 1951as in show crews on Art Schoenfusss crew but I am not sure where he worked before retirement. Interesting that he lived within a mile of me and that we never crossed paths.
