George grew up and lived his entire life near Success until he moved to the nursing home. He attended school at a one room school, named Dunn just east of Success. He never married, remaining at home, caring for his parents. This enabled them to stay in their home until their passing.

He also had a Honda 4×4 ATV automatic Foreman Rubicon that he enjoyed riding on the old trails in the Mark Twain Forest.

He accepted the Lord several years ago and attended the Success Baptist Church when he was able.
