~ Obituary ~

George Lee Williams was born on March 29, 1950 to the late Edward Williams Sr. and Lessie Davis. George received his early education in Marion, SC from Johnakin High School where he graduated in 1969. He went home with the Lord on July 30, 2020 at his home.

George was raised in Marion County, South Carolina and at an early age became a member of the Mount Pisgah Baptist Church, under the leadership of the late Rev. Dr. Henry McGill Jr. George was a former member of the Male Chorus and an active member of Board of Trustees until his health decline. George gave his life to Christ at an early age and remained a humble servant of God. George’s heat was pure and kind to all who knew him and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.

George was always one who liked the finer things in life and enjoyed traveling up to New York and Ocean City in his earlier years. He enjoyed politics and the Young and Restless. George would always say if you want anything in life you have to work for it and that’s just what he did until he became disabled. George’s favorite saying was “Do more for other than you do for yourself”.
