George Corts was born September 26, 1945 in Langhorne, Pennsylvania and passed away March 22, 2023 in Noblesville, Indiana.
While attending Butler University, George was drafted into the army where he served his country faithfully for 2 years in the Vietnam war. When he returned, he went back to Butler where he met Susan, his wife of 48 years. Together they would raise two boys, Kyle and Kris who are now 44 and 40 years of age. George was a man of many talents. His culinary expertise was well known by his family and many friends. George interacted with his children, their friends, and the entire neighborhood. Known as "Pyro George" during the 4th of July, he would try to outdo himself every year. He always helped his kids with their science projects, or any other special school projects that they might need an adult helping hand with. As his sons grew older his true passion became coaching soccer. While knowing nothing of the game, he slowly learned by reading books, watching it as much as possible, and by helping his sons get better. As his coaching expertise grew, so did the success of his teams. He started coaching his older son Kyle at a young age. As Kyle got older, he started to coach Kris's teams. He became very close with this group, always referring to them as "his boys." They were one of and still are one of the most successful Rowdies teams to ever come from Noblesville, even winning the Bush International Tournament in St Louis. He was a firm believer in playing every team member to help develop their confidence, give them experience and build team camaraderie. His credo was to always stay positive, critique in a positive way and always show respect to one another. That is why "his boys" often looked to him as a mentor and even a second father. To his last days, "his boys" always made time to come visit their coach, who is also their close friend. George's sense of humor was second to none. His one-liners were classic, and people still talk about them to this day. He always made time for his family, taking his two boys camping with their friends or taking his wife on a surprise vacation. We can truly say George was loved by all, and will be missed as much as any husband, father, friend, coach, amazing person will ever be missed.
George is survived by his wife, Susan; his children, Kyle and Kris (Abby); and his brother, Jim (Linda.)
