George Edward Nolan was born on November 14, 1942 to LuVerne L. Nolan and Mary Leone Baird
Nolan. His father passed away when he was not yet one year old. He was raised in Britton, South Dakota, where his mother worked as a nurse to support the family. She was later remarried to Bill Hardina. He grew up with his three older sisters, Maryln, Linda, and Shirley. And two younger brothers, Vern and Jim. George graduated from Britton High School as class valedictorian. He attended one year at the College of Mines and Science in Rapid City, South Dakota. He then joined the Air Force where he served as a medic from 1961 to 1965. After his service in the Air Force, he finished his degree in Medical Technology and Organic Chemistry.
In 1970 he met the love of his life, Rosalie Memmott, while attending the 12th East Ward of the
University West Stake in Salt Lake City. They married in the Manti Temple on March 11, 1972. Dad and
Mom started their family while living in Kearns Utah. They moved to Taylorsville, Utah where they raised
their 5 children. They lived in Taylorsville for 44 years, where they still have many close friends. They recently moved to West Point, Utah to be closer to their children.
George spent most of his career in the fields of medical science. He worked as a Clinical Researcher at
the University of Minnesota and the University of Utah. He ran the nuclear medicine lab at the VA
hospital in Salt Lake. He was proud of the research that he did and had several of his research papers
published in Scientific Journals. He spent the bulk of his career as an administrator at Becton Dickinson, where he received industry recognition in Biomedical Quality Engineering.
Some of Dad’s greatest achievements were in the service he gave as a member of the Church of Jesus

George and Rosalie also served the people of South Carolina as missionaries in the South Carolina, Columbia Mission. George was well-versed in scripture and doctrine.
