March 7, 1936 - August 16, 2016

James “Jimmy” Richard George, Sr., 80, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 16th after a long illness.
Jimmy was born in Nashville, TN, the son of the late Iby and Ozelle George. After moving to Virginia Beach, Jimmy took on the task of being a lifeguard at the Oceanfront. He was an interesting man that was in a category of his own. His quick wit ensured that he never met a stranger. In 1957, Jimmy married his Sweetheart Patricia. He later did HVAC work for Civil Service.
In addition to his parents, Jimmy was predeceased by his brother, Bill George and his sister, Juanita Gardner. Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife Patricia S. George; adoring children, Robynne Cacace (Pat); Connie Ponder (Dale) and Rick George (Melissa); 10 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; a brother, Robert George (Beverly); a sister Elsie Lusson and a legion of extended family and dear friends.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
