George Michael Sultage Jr., 43, of Mechanicsville, Md., passed away on Monday, October 18, 2021 after battling cancer. His final days were spent at home surrounded by loving family and friends.

Sultage spent most of his career working in the commercial glass and facades industry. He most recently held the position of director of sales for Press Glass Inc., an architectural glass fabricator in Europe and in the U.S.

“It was both a challenge and a joy bridging the gap of two continents to grow the business. It was an incredibly rewarding experience and I wish I could be here to see it through,” Sultage has said. Additionally, he was a member of the Mid-Atlantic Glass Association.

Sultage moved to Maryland where he met the love of his life, Michelle, and they married on July 8, 2005. They shared over 16 years of marriage, and two sons, Hunter and Bryce.

According to his obituary, he was an avid outdoorsman who savored time spent in nature and sharing his love of the outdoors with his boys. He loved fishing and cruising in the Atlantic Ocean and the Maryland waterways, including the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac and Patuxent Rivers.
