Local 710 Remembers Brother George J. Vallance

It is with our deepest sympathies that we inform you of the passing of George Vallance. Brother Vallance was a truly dedicated Local 710 UPS Teamster at the Peoria, Ill. facility who maintained strong friendships with his fellow drivers as well as his customers. He retired with 35 years of service in 2016. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Vallance family and all who knew George.


George J. Vallance, 61, passed away on May 21, 2019 in Champaign, IL. He was preceded in death by his parents, James & Nora Vallance and is survived by his sister, Audrey Vallance, and two nieces, Lindsay Vallance and Isabella Cain.

George retired from UPS in 2016 where he was a driver for many years in the Peoria/Bartonville area. He was especially attentive to all his customers to whom he delivered, knowing them by first names and their personal stories. He was an avid sports fan, especially any team from Detroit and the University of Michigan. He also was incredibly knowledgeable about classic rock bands, especially Queen. He enjoyed chatting with people and telling jokes at his favorite hangouts, and was very generous in his charitable giving to many organizations, including the ultimate gift of life by being an organ and tissue donor to Gift of Hope.
