George had accepted the Lord as his personal Savior and served Him in various ways at Lakeside Baptist, Central Baptist in Argo as a Deacon, and lastly at First Baptist Trussville. Over the years, George and Nyla traveled to Kentucky, North Carolina, Louisiana, and Mississippi on mission trips. George enjoyed doing repairs and building projects. His major employment years were as a wholesale dealer in lumber products- Walker Plywood, United Lumber, and retired as manager of Sequoia Supply in Birmingham. George was a World War II veteran, serving in the Merchant Marines and Army. He was honorably discharged in 1945 after the war ended and was always thankful for the opportunity to serve his country. On pleasant days, George enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching traffic pass and talking to people who were walking by. If you were around George much, you would have been privy to his dry wit.
