George W. Churchman, 95, believed by his family to have been the oldest living retired member of the San Diego Police Department in the area, died Thursday in a retirement home.
He was born in Montalvo, but had been in San Diego for 76 years, including 62 as a resident of Pacific Beach.
He was a lieutenant in the Police Department for 25 years. He retired in 1932, and then engaged in private security work. During World War II, he was employed at Camp Callen, where Torrey Pines Inn and Golf Course now are located. He also worked on the Standard Oil Co. dock on San Diego Bay.
He was active, until recent years, in the Pacific Beach Historical Society.
He is survived by a son, Albert J. Churchman of San Diego. His wife, the late Mary M. Churchman, died in 1968.
