     George Solomon Leininger, the son of Solomon Leininger and Anna nee Seyfang, was born on Sept. 26, 1875 in Fulton County, Ohio. One month later (October 26, 1875) he was received into God's Covenant of Grace through the Sacrament of Holy Baptism. He became a Communicant member of St. James Lutheran congregation on the 12th day of May, 1889 through the rite of confirmation. On October 29, 1899 he was joined in holy wedlock with Wilhelmina Brandt.

     To this union were born six children. He leaves to mourn his passing, his wife, Wilhelmina, three sons Leo C. of Bryan; George O. of Archbold; Herbert J. of Defiance; two daughters; Mrs. Wilhelmina Rigg of West Unity; Mrs. Edna Miller of Archbold; one brother John of Defiance; two sisters, Miss Phillippine Leininger and Mrs. Godfrey Stiritz both of Delta; 17 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren and a vast number of other relatives and friends.

     Preceding him in death were one son, Harlo W. and four brothers, Charles, Gabriel, Carl and Otto. Mr. Leininger lived the greater part of his 81 years in Fulton county, Ohio. He gave goodly number of these years serving as an officer in his church and as much time as was needed for those who desired his companionship and advice. During the seven years of my pastorate at St. James there were very few Sundays that George was not assembled with his fellow Christians in both Bible Class and Divine Service. This together with his faithful attendance at the Lord’s Table certainly set a splendid example for both his family and the members of his congregation to follow.

     During his recent illness which confined him to his home he was most receptive to pastoral visits being attentive in his devotions and remaining a faithful guest at the Lord's Supper. He departed this life in Christian faith last Monday morning, October 22, 1956, at the age of 81 years and 26 days. His mortal remains will be laid to rest at the St. James Lutheran Cemetery.

Hold him safely in Thy keeping,
This dear one whom we loved.
Keep him safe now tho he's sleeping
Lord of heaven and earth above.
Guard him oh most tenderly
For he is safe when kept by Thee:
