He and his wife also lived for some years in Brookline and Milford and earlier in Cambridge, MA, and New Canaan, CT. Mr. Whelton married his wife Lillian P. (Rock) Whelton of Nashua in 1954. They had five children together and after 45 years of marriage she died in 1999.

Later in life, Mr. Whelton spent much time advocating for Veterans. He interviewed many Veterans and made recommendations on their behalf through his presentations and letter-writing activities. When not working on Veterens issues, he was fully engaged with his loving family, his neighbors at Hollis Marketplace and his community of friends from St. Patrick Church in Milford where he was an active member until his final days.

Mr. Whelton was predeceased by his oldest son, George B. Whelton, III of Boston, MA.; and his son-in-law Arthur Chester Dyer, IV of Punta Gorda, FL. He was also predeceased by his sisters, Mary (Whelton) Worsowicz of Nashua; and Kathleen (Whelton) Gallagher of Arlington, MA, and his brother Joseph Whelton of Nashua and Kennebunk Beach, ME.

He leaves four great grandchildren: Christian Whelton of Murrieta, CA; Berkeley Neal of Seattle, WA; Francis Harmon Dyer of Austin, TX; Gibson Neal of Seattle, WA; and Gwenavere Wimberly of Port Charlotte, FL. Mr. Whelton is also survived by his sister, Barbara (Whelton) Morton, of Manhattan Beach, CA and NYC. He leaves many nieces and nephews.

Mr. Whelton also leaves Justin Mazimpaka (and his family) of Milford who became part of the Whelton family more than 20 years ago and who continued to help care for Mr. Whelton until his death.
