May 6, 1929 - September 5, 2020
George A. Wilkinson, 91, of Pittsfield, passed away on Saturday, September 5, 2020, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Pittsfield on May 6, 1929, to the late Isabelle and Phillip Wilkinson, George went through all the city schools, graduating from Pittsfield High School in 1947. George met the love of his life Ann (Pigott) and they were married on May 13, 1950. George and Ann were lifelong communicants of St. Mary's and St. Charles Catholic Churches. George was also a Eucharistic Minister for the Church and constructed the very stand that will hold his remains for his services as well as those of countless others. George's career was spent as a Master Carpenter building many homes in the Elm Street area of Pittsfield with his brother in-law Dan Gall until he accepted a position as a Carpentry Instructor with the Berkshire County Sheriff's Department until his retirement in 1995. George and Ann had 7 wonderful children together who graced them with 8 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. George's great passions were woodworking, model airplanes and his family. There wasn't a single thing he couldn't fix. Everything he built, he built with the utmost care, patience and attention to detail, including his family.
