George was a family man and most happy when his family was all together. He is best described as a loving, kind, tender-hearted, proud and quiet man. He had a certain twinkle in his eyes that would make you smile. He loved having coffee with the “guys” at the Senior Center or as George liked to call it “The Re-cycled Teenager Center.” He loved playing Forty-two with friends. He enjoyed raising cattle and working on the farm while riding his tractor. He was a fisherman and would travel all over the United States in his fifth wheel with his wife, Wanda. George loved the outdoors and seeing all of God’s creations.
He was an active member of First Baptist Church in Blooming Grove. He served his country in the U.S. Army and continued to serve his community as a Highway Patrolman for the better part of his life. George never met a stranger.
