George Robert Bales aged 105 of Portland passed away on April 15, 2013 at the Maine Medical Center after a brief battle with pneumonia. He was a very old 105.
George who was remarkably robust until recently, said that he was happy and enjoyed all the inventions that had impact on his long life.
A memorial service will be held tomorrow afternoon. Delays were due to the shooting in Boston where some of his family resides.
