George was a member of Walthall Baptist Church, and a U.S. Army veteran. He worked 33 years with Wonder Bread in Eupora first as a Route Man and then as Manager before retiring. After retiring from Wonder Bread he was able to devote his time to the family owned business “Sandra’s Kitchen”. He loved greeting the many patrons and just visiting with the everyday customers. After Sandra’s Kitchen burned in 1999, the business relocated to Walthall Quick Stop where George continued working and enjoying being involved with the public. He was an avid sportsman, loved hunting, fishing, golf and travel with his wife Sandra until his health declined. He especially loved large family suppers when all his family and grandchildren would be there.
