Dearest Mary Alice , Tom and Melissa:

I am very sorry to hear of George's passing May God Comfort You All and those of us who knew and loved George in this difficult season of mourning and bereavement and beyond.
George knew and loved the Lord Jesus Christ. He taught Sunday School for many years and was a major supporter of the ministries at Clairmont Baptist Church. He had a heart for the Lord and wanted to see more people in the neighborhoods around Clairmont Baptist Church come to know the Lord and become a part of the Church. He will definitely be missed.
God Bless, Comfort and Be with You All.
In Christ's Love and Grace,
Mac McKInnon

Mr. George Bell will be in my memory always. He had shown his support personally to me during my work with him at DMC, Georgia Power.
He has created many work instructions back in 2001-2016 that we are still follow and use. He was kind, smart and always willing to help person. RIP, Dear George!

I worked with George for many, many years up until his retirement. He was a wonderful friend and a gentle giant of a man! I, too, shared many "chats" with George over all those years that we shared together. I will always remember the first time I "hung out" with George. He and I, along with a couple of others, went to a WWF wrestling match at the Omni. We had a ball of a time and it was so fun to see George get excited over the events that took place that night.
We became close friends after that evening and shared many ups and downs over the years. I was sad to see George retire from GPC when he did but I was happy for him to be able to go and start a new chapter in his life. I know he always cherished his annual Fall trip to Gatlinburg and we always corresponded as he was anticipating his journey. I would get updates from him, via email, as he enjoyed himself with his shopping and dining out. It was his most favorite place to visit and he loved to share about his trips and memories there. George was so very talented, and gifted, with his artwork and his innate ability to remember dates and events. He was sharp as a tack! He so loved growing up in the country and had many, many stories he shared with me about his life and times growing up. He loved the simple life, loved his family, and he loved the Lord. He loved a little lady, Ms. Margie, too! They were "two peas in a pod" and loved each other. I hope they are reunited now in Heaven. God rest their souls together! I'll miss you my friend. You were a good man!

I will forever be grateful that George hired me to work with him at Georgia Power Company. I worked with George for 10 of my 28 years at GPC. George was always good to me and I enjoyed his 'LONG' chats and his good sense of humor. You knew that George liked you if he held you captive in conversation.
We stayed in touch, over the years via emails. George wrote so elegantly. His calligraphy was phenomenal.
I remember going into his office and because of his failing eyesight he would about have his nose on the paper in order to do his calligraphy. George's wood work was exceptional also. He was a talented man.
Every year I would email George during Thanksgiving and let him know how much I appreciated that he had hired me.
I will miss George.
