George was a member of the Robert Lee Baptist church, where he served as deacon. He was a long time employee of Robert Lee Independent School District, from which he retired. He continued to serve Robert Lee ISD as a school board member until his death. If George wasn’t helping at the church, you could find him out tending the Robert Lee Cemetery, or helping anyone who called on him. He was a friend to all in Robert Lee, and loved by so many. His family wants to extend thanks and appreciation to all of those who have helped and loved George through the last few years.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Robert Lee Baptist Church.
