George Earl Philip Rivar of Caro, age 62, passed away at his home on Thursday, August 31, 2017.  George was born June 3, 1955 in Detroit, the son of the late George Daniel and Doris Jean (Rupp) Rivar.  He was united in marriage with the former Anita Bond on October 10, 1975 in Mayville, and she survives him.  George spent his working career as a mechanic. He was a man who was always tinkering with something, playing practical jokes, was able to tell the most amazing stories, and would do anything for anyone. Once you met George, you were instantly drawn to him.  He just had that friendly/guy next-door kinfolk kinda vibe.  George was also a great listener and did not judge you.  You were forever changed for the better once George came into your life.
