George’s Journey: Born April 13, 1955, George was the fifth of eight children. George attended

1973 and served until 1979. He did his basic training at Paris Island Station at Marine Corps

Base Camp Lejeune, Jacksonville, NC. George’s duties as a Motor Transport Operator were to

service and operate vehicles for transporting troops and supplies. He was awarded a

Marksmanship Competition Badge for his Rifleman abilities. After the Marine Corps he kept the

discipline and structure he learned in the Marine Corps his entire life. 


He was employed with The Government Printing Office for 15 years. After that he worked as a

car salesman at Sheehy Ford in Marlow Heights where he won “Salesman of the year”. Knowing

George, you knew he could sell anyone anything. George later moved to Memphis, TN after

accepting a position with the Amvets where he held the position as Regional Manager covering

several locations in the South. He later returned to his Washington DC roots and held the

position of Environmental Service Director for Health Care Services for 22 years serving the

District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia until his illness in year 2000.  

“Gorgeous George” as he was sometimes known, enjoyed life to the fullness. He was the

sharpest dressed man in the room and the best dress man going to the 7-11. He also had the best

dance moves on the floor. He was a big sports fan of The Washington Commanders and

everything and anything that is Washington, DC. In his younger years, he enjoyed playing

football and basketball. George loved going to the casino and enjoyed gathering with family and

friends. George was a constant source of support and encouragement to his family and friends,

and he always challenged anyone to be their best and to do their best!  


George was comforted by the love of his life Vickie, a strong constant source of strength and

support through some of his most recent challenging battles. George and Vickie had a bond that

could not be broken. She stayed by his side until The End! Endless Love! 


He is survived by the loves of his life Vickie, Kevin, Lakeisha Dent, four sisters Ruth Wilson,

and Della Jackson, Cynthia Robinson, Lavonne Vickers. Special friends Tyrone Brody, Lamar

Jones, Edward Montgomery, Stan Brown, Melvin Middleton and Mike “Bicycle Man”. A host of

nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and friends.
