George will always be remembered as the one who made you smile and everyone fell in love with. Whenever his family sees a pair of bib overalls or anything to do with farming, they will have fond memories of grandpa. He worked hard for 48 years farming with his wife by his side to provide for their family. His family was always important to him especially his grandkids and many great-grand kids. He loved fishing, coon hunting, his beloved mules, gardening and spending time with the guys at the coffee shop.
