Jerry Morris George

Jerry Morris George, born November 7, 1936, in Leslie, Arkansas was called home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, February 13, 2024.  


He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, son, and brother.  He served as a pastor to Gilead, First Baptist of Social Hill and Manning for over 40 plus years. He was a dedicated timber buyer at Anthony Timberland in Bearden for over 20 years. Papaw’s faith in Christ and devotion to sharing the gospel made an impact with everyone he came in contact with. We know he is in heaven eating Cheetos, Orange Slices and drinking a Diet Pepsi while Memaw is giggling at him for washing paper plates. 


He is preceded in death by his wife of 51 years, Mary George; his parents; and his great-granddaughter, Kylee.


He is survived by his two daughters and son-in-law, Debbie Holland and Maryetta and David Beals, all of Donaldson; his son and daughter-in-law, Bobby and Tracy George of Donaldson; his sister and brother-in-law, Peggy and Dallas Horton of Marshall; his four grandsons and their spouses, Jerry and Amy Holland of Durant, Oklahoma, Nathan and Julie Holland of Claremore, Oklahoma, Dustin and Hollie Beals of Benton, Brandon George of Mississippi; his granddaughter and her husband Ashley and Jesse Hopkins of Holly Springs; his 8 great-granddaughters; his 5 great-grandsons; and many nieces, nephews, extended family members and a host of wonderful friends.
