George C. Nier of Denton, MD, passed away on November 30, 2020 at the Talbot Hospice in Easton, MD. He was 76 years old.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, Mr. Nier was the son of the late Bruno Herbert Nier and Marie Dorothy Hanft Nier. Mr. Nier graduated from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA and received his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Miami law school. He clerked for The Honorable Thomas Everngam before becoming self-employed and practicing law in Denton for 50 years.
At an early age, George embraced and excelled at sports, especially baseball and his most beloved sport, basketball. From Little League to youth basketball, he was a perpetual coach in all sports and would always provide help to any athlete that needed a refresher on mechanics, whether requested or not. George relished reminiscing about playing basketball in high school and college. He also loved his time on the golf course, becoming a scratch golfer who celebrated four holes-in-one. Another sport he excelled at was his practical jokes on family and friends.
Mr. Nier was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity and Delta Theta Phi law fraternity. He served as the president of Caroline Country Club; president of Caroline County Bar Association; legal counsel to the Caroline County Board of Elections; attorney for the Caroline County Treasurer; and County Attorney for many years.
Mr. Nier considered his children his greatest accomplishment — Eric K. Nier (Terri) of Raleigh, NC, Jason J. Nier of Ellicott City, MD, Brandon T. Nier (Cheri) of Denton, MD, and Natalie D. Nier (David) of Raleigh, NC. He also routinely boasted about, and is survived by, four grandchildren: Skylar Harrison (George), Trevor Nier, Trent Nier, and Samuel Nier; and two great grandchildren, Rowan Harrison and Remington Harrison.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the friends who provided love and support throughout his life.
