He is preceded in death by his mother and father, Robert and Bernice George; brother Jerry George.
Joe was born in Bogalusa, Louisiana on November 4, 1946 to Robert and Bernice George. He graduated from Kubasaki High School in Okinawa and later studied at North Texas State University. On August 5th, 1967 he married Patricia McCauley, who he met as a church camp counselor at Camp Deer Run. From 1969 to 1979 they brought his 4 sons into the world. He loved them all dearly and always spoke about how proud he was of his sons and grandchildren.
Joe was a devoted father, an Army veteran, an avid reader and master joke teller. He enjoyed working on classic cars and trading them for his next “toy”. He especially loved driving old Cadillacs while listening to classic country music. Joe was always a good salesman, but wanted folks to get a fair deal and feel good about the agreement. He was quick to help out those in need and would give you the plaid shirt off his back in a heartbeat. Joe had a deep faith in God and gave some of the best blessings anyone had ever heard. Growing up in a large military family taught him at an early age to appreciate what you had and that it’s the time spent with loved ones that really mattered. He will be deeply missed by friends, family and all who knew him.
In lieu of flowers the family is asking for donations to go towards his medical expenses. Any additional proceeds will go towards a foundation set up in his name with the American Cancer Society.
