He was a founding member of Green’s Creek Baptist Church and was actively involved in the building of the church. He served the church as a Sunday School teacher, deacon, and served on many committees through the years. He was an avid gardener and dearly loved his family. 
George proudly served his country in World War II as a member of the US Army Infantry and was a prisoner of war in a German POW camp.

Mr. Morrison was so very kind, loving and generous. I so enjoyed seeing him every week and listening to the stories he shared. He spoke so very often of his family and I know he missed them greatly. He also spoke of his grandchildren with great love. My husband and I will miss him dearly but we know he is in heaven and at peace. ♥️
