George L. Romey, a retired Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. power plant operator and volunteer, died of Parkinson's disease Thursday at his home in Lee's Summit, Mo. The former Pasadena resident was 82.

Mr. Romey was born in Brooklyn Heights, Anne Arundel County, and was a 1939 graduate of Glen Burnie High School. He enlisted in the Army in 1942 and served as a marksman in the Pacific.

After being discharged in 1945, he returned to Baltimore and went to work for BGE. He was a power plant operator at its Baltimore generating stations until retiring in 1984.

Mr. Romey was a longtime volunteer with Meals on Wheels and in 1999 was named the organization's Maryland Volunteer of the Year.

From 1990 to 2002, Mr. Romey lived in Centreville, and since last year he resided in Lee's Summit.

He was an avid vegetable gardener and a former communicant of Our Lady of the Chesapeake Roman Catholic Church in Lake Shore.

A memorial Mass will be offered at 10:30 a.m. today at Our Lady of the Presentation Roman Catholic Church in Lee's Summit.

Mr. Romey is survived by his wife of 51 years, the former Gloria Asti; four sons, Rodney Romey of Vancouver, Wash., Stephen Romey of Gaithersburg, George Romey of New York City and Jay Romey of Edgerton, Mo.; and four grandchildren.
