Mr. Phillip Paul George

Mr. Phillip Paul George, 75, died suddenly the 24th day of August 2021, on George Farm.

In accordance with his wishes, the family will privately honor his memory at home.

Phillip George was the only son of James Paul and Leah George, born on June 5th, 1946 in Roanoke, Alabama.

Phillip spent 57 years married to the love of his life, Barbara George. The two were high school sweet hearts and married right after graduating.

Phillip is survived by his loving wife, Barbara George, his two sons Randy (Trisha) George and Rick (Kim) George, his three grandsons Levi (Cortney) George, Luke (Jessica) George, and Justin (Brooke) George, and four great-grandchildren Cash, Cohen, Annie, and Callie.

Phillip attended Nashville Auto-Diesel College to become a mechanic after graduating high school. Phillip began his professional career at Allen-George Garage in Lagrange, Georgia.

After opening his garage he served as president of the Independent Garage Owners Association in 1969.

In 1972, Mr. George started a new business venture that would impact generations of his family, grading. Phillip taught his two sons Randy and Rick George to build ponds, clear land for pasture, grade for buildings, and work hard; skills the two sons used when they grew up to start a successful grading and hauling business of their own.

In 1990, Phillip started a hauling company and regularly worked 16 hour days for the next 20 years until retirement.

Phillip’s greatest accomplishment may be the work ethic he instilled in his boys, which they passed down to their own sons. Phillip enjoyed mud bogging and built and ran Deer Creek Mud Bog for several years.
