George Roger Wotton, age 40 of Littleton passed away suddenly at home on August 5, 2019. Born July 8, 1979 in Farmington Connecticut, George was the youngest son of Laura Bell Wotton. By the time he was four his family would relocate to Bethlehem New Hampshire. Eventually they moved to a little house along the Ammonoosuc River in Twin Mountain where he would spend his childhood. Being the youngest of six his mother came to depend on George; up until her death in 2017, he was her rock. George was known for his love of strong family bonds, he loved and laughed deeply.
George was proud of his New Hampshire life. He enjoyed swimming and hiking along the waterways, as well as searching for Geocaches. As with any true “sportsman” he was proud of his conquests as a geocache hunter.
George worked at Burndy’s in Lincoln and is known as one of the original “four". He formed strong lifelong bonds with his coworkers. Since 2009 he has been employed at Genfoot In Littleton, this was much more than a job for George, he was a member of the Genfoot family. He was well liked and respected by coworkers and management alike. Always with a positive attitude, he enjoyed troubleshooting and problem solving. George was a hard worker with a calming manner and a way of making everyone’s day brighter by diffusing difficult situations. Most times with his “pun-ney” sense of humor. George could turn a bad day at work around and make people smile. He had a way of making everyone he came in contact with the “most important “ person. George was promoted to Production Logistics Manager in 2018. He loved that his job included traveling to Canada, especially for the Holiday Dinners. George also enjoyed cooking and inventing “new" recipes and found humor in posting food pictures of the finished creations on social media .
George is survived by his longtime companion Tia Currier and her son Jake of Littleton. He also leaves behind his daughter Gillian and son Matthew who reside with their mother, Penny Doucette, in Northampton Massachusetts.
