Condolences to the family. I am a classmate of Dale and my mother and George's mother were from Siler City. I last remember talking with George when he ran the Projector at the Pix Theater in Black Mountain. Just heard today of his passing.

Dear family, I feel your pain of losing your spouse, brother, father & grandfather, but he will always be with you in your memories. It's been at least six years since I've seen George & most of my Johnson relatives. George's mother, my great aunt Betty Johnson Wrenn was my grandfather Lexie's sister and he married Joda Horton. This weekend is the Horton reunion in Zebulon, N.C.; which, is where I am remembering & honoring all of those that have passed including my mother Wilhelmina. My prayers are with all of you and I'm certain God will help you find peace with the hollowness that you feel today.

Judy, I am so sorry to hear this. I thought the world of George. He was a kind, friendly man to me at Meco and you were too. And always smiling. Praying for peace and comfort.

Our prayers go out to Judy and the rest of George’s family.
May God keep him in his arms until we meet again.

While Judy and George both worked for me , both were friends.
George was always around to give advice and counsel . A man I came to depend upon as well as a friend I will miss.

Judy,
You’re with us in each prayer, because we care.
Your friends,
Gary and Peggy Landes
