Obituary for George A. Oberle

George A. Oberle
George A. Oberle, “Captain”, USNR, Ret., 94, of Monmouth Beach, died on March 31, 2018 after a brief illness. He attended grade school in Palisades Park, NJ, through age 9, attended St. Thomas Choir School in NYC from 1933 through 1938 and was graduated from St. Cecelia HS in Englewood, NJ in 1940. His college career at Trinity College, Hartford CT began in 1940 and included enlistment in the Navy Officer College Program and membership in the Navy V-12 unit established at Trinity.

George captained the USS PGM32 monitoring radioactivity following the Atomic Bomb Tests conducted at Bikini Atoll in the summer of 1943. After release from active duty with the Navy, George received his diploma from Trinity College in June, 1947 and began a long career in the commodity exchange business. He was chairman of the Cotton Exchange and had membership on the Coffee & Sugar Exchange. Subsequently, he with others established and was elected the first president of the Citrus Associates of the NY Cotton Exchange which dealt in the newly established orange juice concentrates market.

Upon his retirement from the financial business, George was an active member of AARP in New Jersey and served in leadership positions with that organization. George loved telling stories about his boyhood activities at the choir school, family beach escapades at N.Y.’s Rockaway Point, his exciting and numerous Naval adventures, and his first hand experiences with the ups and downs of the financial world. He built beautiful model sailing ships, enjoyed painting and loved music. An accomplished carillonneur, George most recently played at St. George’s-by-the-River Episcopal Church where he was a member.

George is predeceased by his parents Grover C. Oberle and Lillie Wueger Oberle; his wife, Ethel Mueller Oberle, whom he married in 1951 and with whom he enjoyed many adventures traveling around the world; and his brother, Grover J. Oberle.

George will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to the Carillon Restoration Fund at St. George’s-by-the-River Episcopal Church, 7 Lincoln Ave., Rumson, NJ 07760.
