What I remember BEST about PawPaw (GEORGE PEACE). Well where do I start? He was a good man, father and grandad .. I remember riding to the store with paw paw and daddy one evening when I was a little boy... we pulled up to our destination I was getting out of the car and I didn't see Pawpaw's hand at the time, but I
remember slamming the door on his hand and with a look in his eyes that was nothing less than kind and gentle he said "Son will ya open the door? you slammed it on my hand!" and once I got it open, he stood up and looked at it and said "no worries, I'm okay!"
From that moment forward I have always thought he was the toughest man I've ever known... just for the simple fact that he showed no pain and I thought that was just so cool at the age that I was. I love you Pawpaw, and I always will. You'll forever hold a special place in my heart right there beside Grandma Peace and Daddy!!
FLY HIGH,
LOVE YOUR GRANDSON

What a kind and humble man George was. I can remember many times at family get togethers talking with him about hot rods and muscle cars. Memories I cherish and will never forget. The first time we went to visit George, he took the time to show me his collection of cars and such. What a wonderful time that was. Thanks be unto God, no more pain and suffering for him. I love him, and will truly miss him.

I’m so sorry about George. I knew him since high school. A nicer man you would never know. My thoughts & prayers are with the Family during this time of sorrow.

10 years ago the Lord sent me an angel. She is George’s granddaughter, Misty. George was Misty’s rock in an ever changing world. The more I knew him, the more I learned how much he helped others in any situation, asking nothing in return. Without George, I wouldn’t have my angel. I am eternally grateful to have had George in my life. God bless you Papa.
