George Wesley Kellogg, 92, of Clear Creek, CA passed away on Monday, November 29, 2021, in Chester, CA. George was born on May 11, 1929, in Jordon, Montana, to Ira Noble Kellogg and Emma Elizabeth Kellogg. At an early age he was drafted into the Army during the Korean War and spent his tour based at Camp Rucker, Alabama, as their company clerk. He then continued his career with the United States Gypsum company, where he worked for 40 years, retiring in 1989.
On a more personal level, he loved laughter, family, and friends. He and his wife Mary Belle Kellogg adopted Kevin Ira Kellogg and Kendyl Melissa Kellogg in the 1960s and he was a wonderful father, friend, and grandfather. George embraced life to the fullest. You could say he worked hard and played hard. He was very family-orientated and tried to get together with his family any chance he could.
He was preceded in death by his first wife, Mary Belle Petersen Kellogg, his second wife Phyllis Manchester Kellogg, parents Ira Noble Kellogg and Emma Elizabeth Kellogg, and siblings Virginia Osborn, Ruth Maxie, Mary Owens, Marjorie Kellogg, Harold Kellogg, and Kenneth Kellogg.
He is survived by his son Kevin Kellogg and his wife Lorena Kellogg, daughter Kendyl Kellogg, grandchildren Kaitlyn Belle Finegan and her husband Patrick Finegan, and Grant Thomas Kellogg.
