George Elmer McCurry, 73, entered into the loving arms of Jesus on Thursday (September 3, 2020). George was born on April 16, 1947 to the late John and Imogene (Mull) McCurry.

George was an avid sports fan. He followed football, baseball and basketball. He was very passionate about his political beliefs. He believed in democracy, equal rights, fairness and working together for change. He would often say “You have to stand for something. Be proud of who you are, what you stand for or believe in, and never change for anyone.”

When George wasn’t watching sports or politics, he enjoyed westerns, old horror films and classic movies. His favorite pastime of all was being with his friends and family. He loved dearly and cherished all the family gatherings with his extended family the Youngman’s of Port Orange, Florida; and the Bevilacqua’s (residing in Florida and Pennsylvania). Although his soul now lies with the Lord, the memories and love in our hearts remain.

In addition to his parents, George was preceded in death by his son, Johnny McCurry; brothers, John and Bobby; and sister, Vivian.

Left to cherish his memory are his daughter, Michelle Bevilacqua & husband Joshua of Ormond Beach, FL; son, George Jr. McCurry of Ringold, VA; brother, Dennis; two sisters, Katherine and Janice; two granddaughters, Kayla and Julyana of Ormond Beach, FL; nephew, James & wife Kimberly and their four daughters, Emily, Jordan, Lillie, and Quinn; niece, Danielle & husband John and their two sons, Dylan and Colton; special cousin, Edith Eastridge of Kingsport, TN; mother of his children and special friend, Mary; special friends, Tracy Reed of Palm Coast, FL, Mike, Dave, and Johnny of Deland, FL and Steve and Lacy of Ormond Beach, FL, Andrew Lenarcic of Port Orange, FL, and Anthony Taylor of Orlando, FL; neighbors, Ken, Robin, Paul, and Gina of Ormond Beach, FL; and a host of friends.

The family will receive friends on Saturday (September 12th, 2020) from noon until 2 p.m. at East Lawn Funeral Home. Funeral Services will follow in the chapel at 3 p.m. with Bro. Joe Wall officiating. George will be entombed following on Saturday (September 12th, 2020) at 3 p.m. in Mausoleum II at East Lawn Memorial Park. Family and friends will serve as pallbearers.
