Frank King; and his sister Mary King Line. He is survived by his daughter-in-law, Teressa M. King; and numerous nieces and nephews; and a host of friends.
George attended Anahuac Independent School District until the 10th grade when enlisted in the United States Army on June 26, 1945, and served until October 31, 1946. After serving, George returned to Anahuac, Texas, and worked in the Local Post Office until his retirement in 1981.
George and Lena both were active members of the First Baptist Church of Anahuac, Texas. After Lena’s passing George continued to be active serving as a Deacon in the church until his illness prevented him from attending.
George loved to fish and hunt. There are many trophies along the wall of their home. They both loved to work with wood and made many of the furniture pieces in their home. George loved to make bowls, cups, and goblets out of various woods from around the home and all over the world. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
Honoring the family by serving as pallbearers will be Bobby Dockens, Robert Jackson, Richard Brumley, Charles Broussard, Sammy King, Jr. and Bobby Hall.
