Obituary for George David Williams

George David Williams, 79, met his Savior face to face early Saturday morning, June 23, 2018 at Wayne UNC Health Care surrounded by his family. George was born June 6, 1939, to the late Lucky Earl and Ellen Whitley Williams of the Elroy community. George graduated from New Hope High School in 1957 and married Sue Gardner Williams on September 13, 1959.

George spent much of his career in sales and retired from Nationwide Insurance in 2002 after 24 years of service. During his retirement, George became an avid golfer and enjoyed continuing to serve in various volunteer opportunities throughout the community. One of his proudest volunteering opportunities was serving on the Goldsboro Rescue Squad for over a decade. George was awarded The Order of the Long Leaf Pine in 2002 for his exemplary service to the community and the state of North Carolina. He also founded the Wayne County Friends of Law Enforcement committee to recognize local law enforcement and first responders.

George was a member of Pleasant Grove OFWB Church in Pikeville, where he served as a deacon, usher and Sunday school teacher.

A service to celebrate the life of George will be held on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at 7:00 pm at Pleasant Grove OFWB Church in Pikeville, NC. The family will receive friends following the service in the church fellowship hall and at other times at his home. The interment will be held Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at 10:00 am at Evergreen Memorial Cemetery.

In addition to his wife of 58 years, George is survived by his children Dean Williams (Mary Beth), Denise Combs (Keith), and Neal Williams; grandchildren Lauren Massey (Jesse), Eric Williams (Katie), Adam Combs, Victoria Combs, Taylor Williams, Tanner Williams, and Emma Williams; great-grandchildren, Ella and Alaina Massey; brothers Alton Williams and Brent Williams (Marsha); sisters-in-law Linda Joyce Sasser (Cordell) and Shirley Gardner.
