George was born on March 16, 1927 in Slocomb, AL to the late George and Katherine Morris. He proudly served his country in the United States Marines. He later became employed with Fieldcrest Mills where he worked as a Loom Fixer for 24 years. George was a remarkable man with many talents. He had a gift of growing the most beautiful vineyards full of luscious muscadines and scuppernongs. His love for the great outdoors was reflected in his enjoyment for hunting and fishing.
George attended Altman Memorial Baptist Church on Veterans Parkway. His family knew him as a loving and generous man who truly cared for people. This became even more evident during the years he lovingly cared for his beautiful wife before her passing. Words cannot describe the legacy this wonderful man has left his family. He will be greatly missed but will always hold a place of love and respect in the hearts of all who were so blessed to be able to call him family and friend.
