Obituary of George William Halmhuber

George William "Punky" Halmhuber, age 52, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, March 15, 2016. Born on November 22, 1963 in Frankfort, KY. George is survived and so greatly missed by his wife, Mary Cope Halmhuber; son, Will Halmhuber; stepdaughter, Bailey Pedersen; his Aunt Mary Breeden; along with cousins and others too many to mention.  He was preceded in death by his father, George Halmhuber; and his mother, Virginia Ackman Halmhuber.   George was a graduate of Western Hills High School and the University of Kentucky. George was the sole owner and operator of Halmhuber Excavating.  He always laughed about getting paid to play with his big Tonka Toys. He was also a farmer having once raised tobacco followed by cattle.  He loved his farm and would never consider living in town because he could not "pee off the porch."   George loved hunting, fishing, and boating.  He spent many weekends with family and friends on his boat at Dale Hollow Lake... shirtless, of course!  He loved his lake time and lake family.  He also tried to never miss a Monday night poker game or a standing Thursday night Casa Fiesta feast with his many dear friends.  George gave hugs, lots of hugs.  He always had a big smile on his face, a kind word to say, or a very long story (or stories) to share. He was a gentle giant and that big frame was filled with love. A Memorial Service will be held Friday, March 18, 2016 at 2 pm, with Visitation preceding on Friday, March 18, 2016 from 10-2 at Saffell House Funeral Home in Lawrenceburg. Saffell House Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements. Full obituary will be following.
