John Carl George

John Carl George, 91, of Emory died peacefully the morning of March 14, 2020. He was born in Lebanon, Indiana, on June 12, 1928, to Harmon and Marie Hazelrigg George.
During his working career, he was employed with L-3 Communications in Greenville. He worked as an electronic specialist. He was able to see the world while employed there, as they sent him to many different countries to work. However, after retirement, he was a cattleman on his farm in Rains County.
He loved his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
The farm and his cattle gave him much pleasure during his later years. He enjoyed walking among his cows, feeding and putting out hay. He felt a peace and quietness, a closeness to the earth and nature, as he mingled with his herd.
Mr. George is survived by his son, Johnny George and wife Leslie of Emory; step-son, Billy Joe Petrea and wife Rose of Pine Mills; step-daughters, Jeanie Beaty of Whitney, and Cindy Lou Petrea of Dublin; brother, Robert Clyde George of Sulphur Springs; grandchildren, John David George, Heather Marie George, Crystal Petrea, Billy Jack Petrea, Chad Whitney and Jamie Riddell; and eight great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and a brother.
Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Wilson-Orwosky Funeral Home in Emory.
