VARY, George Folk, of Mt. Pleasant, SC, passed away suddenly on June 22, 2018 at age 69. He died in Roper St. Francis Hospital, listening to Ella Fitzgerald with his wife Liz, his daughter Elizabeth and his son Crispin.
A graduate of Deerfield Academy, Harvard College (where he was “the voice of Harvard Hockey” on the college radio) and the University of Pennsylvania Law School, George’s successful career at Breed, Abbot & Morgan in New York City, led to senior legal and executive positions at Armco Steel in Middletown, Ohio and Washington, DC.
A long-time resident of Bethesda, MD, George for many years was the Executive Director of the American Zinc Association. A master chef and an avid and skilled golfer, he and Liz moved to the Charleston area after George retired.
