Obituary for George H. Lomas

George H. Lomas, 74, of Warminster and Gettysburg, passed away on September 19, 2016 in Panama City, Florida.
George was born in the Germantown section pf Philadelphia to William and Anna (Price) Lomas on September 7, 1942. He graduated high school from Germantown High School and went on to serve in the Army as a quartermaster (1964 - 1970). In the early sixties, he started skirmishing with the 150th PVI in the NSSA; this led to re-enacting in the Civil War Centennial at the Battle of Bull Run. On April 8, 1967 George married Mary Jo Moffo at St Luke’s Church in Glenside, PA. Shortly after that, he and his brother, Eugene, created The Regimental Quartermaster, a sutlery supplying Revolutionary and Civil War re-enactors. It started with a blanket on the ground selling homemade canteens. During this time, George worked for Bell Telephone (Verizon) and “retired” to Gettysburg after over 30 years with them. He continued to run the thriving mail-order business and store in Gettysburg and was instrumental in the planning and organizing of the annual Gettysburg Civil War Battle re-enactment.
He was a member of the Gettysburg Presbyterian Church, Good Samaritans Masonic Lodge #336, American Legion Post #202, Steinwehr Avenue Business Improvement District, and a lifetime member of the NRA. He also served on the Board of Directors for Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association.
George is survived by his siblings: Gertrude Manley, William, Robert, and Eugene; wife: Mary; children: George “G.T.” and wife Jenea; grandchildren: Abigale and Thomas (Warminster), Maryanne and husband Joe Zilley (Ambler), and William “Bill” and companion Christina Dobson (Tullytown); and loving companion: Susan Saum-Wicklein (Gettysburg) and daughter Hannah Wicklein (Blue Bell).
