George retired from the City of Charlotte Transportation Street Maintenance department, after 28 years.
George was a man who loved God, his family and friends. He enjoyed life to the fullest, fishing, working in his yard and garden, always doing something outside the house., including spending time with his family whom he loved unconditionally.
George was a God-fearing man who was beloved by his church and community.
