George L. Most, 94 of Prescott, WI passed away peacefully at the Prescott Nursing & Rehabilitation Home on March 24, 2021.  He was born June 11, 1926 to John and Matilda Most, in the home where he resided for the next 93 years.  He married Loretta Peterson on August 31, 1948.  Together they raised their three children on the farm that had been in the Most family since the 1850s.  George served on the Oak Grove Town Board for 30 years (nine of which as its chair), on the Hastings (MN) Co-op Creamery Board for 23 years and also served on his local school and church boards.  In 1998 he was chosen for the “WCCO Good Neighbor Award” and in 2012 was named the “Most Admired Senior Citizen” by the Pierce County Fair. He was also an active member of the Farm Bureau and Pierce County Holstein club.  A long-time supporter of local dairy farming, he was known as the “Milkshake Guy” as he handed out milkshakes at many area parades (and always made sure there were enough left over at the end for all of the marching band kids), gave 4-H tours of his farm and had the distinction of having owned the first Excellent Holstein Homegrown Cow and showed “Spot” who was named the Grand Champion Holstein for six years in a row at the Pierce County Fair.  He had an infectious smile and loved spending time with his family and friends.  He was also quite the card player and would never say no to a couple of hands of euchre.  George was also known for the rosettes he made at Christmas, wonderful sweet corn every summer, always bringing a bottle of Bailey’s Irish Cream to family events and sharing his love of farming along stories of growing up and family history with his grandkids and great grandkids.  He will be missed dearly by all that knew and loved him.

George is survived by his three children, Nancy (Bruce) Boeck, Paul (Donna) Most and David Most; his grandchildren Sara (David), Amy (Guy), Jill (Joel), Patrick (Elyse) and great grandchildren Andrew, Avery, Lincoln, Annalise, Nina, Wilson, Weston and Bennett.   George was preceded in death by his wife, Loretta, his parents and siblings.

Gathering of Family and Friends will take place from 3:30 till 7:00 pm Monday 29th at the O’Connell-Benedict Family Funeral Home at 1339 Orrin Road, in Prescott.  Use of masks and social distancing will be practiced. A private family memorial will take place on March 30th at the United Church of Christ in Prescott. George’s final resting place will be at the Pine Glen Cemetery in Prescott.
