June 8, 1955 ~ October 12, 2018 (age 63)
George Avery passed away Friday, October 12, 2018 at the age of 63.
George was born in St. Louis, Missouri on June 8, 1955 to Calvin Ray and Verla Maye (Robertson) Avery.
George’s family was his life, and he deeply loved them all. He was a loving husband to his wife Kaylee and a compassionate father to his children. Giving his daughter Nicole rides on the riding lawnmower and playing with his son Wyatt brought him great joy. He loved making chicken and dumplings for the family and would do anything to help them or anyone else who needed his help.
George would talk to anyone. He was a pain in the butt, but he made life fun because he was so unpredictable. When he got the chance, he loved to go fishing, hunting, do a little drinking, and swimming. His family lovingly called him a smart ass and a packrat. He enjoyed riding his four-wheeler and listening to country music and classic rock. Although he was a joker and very strong willed, humanity was very important to George, loving his family and friends unconditionally. He loved helping others so much they couldn’t refuse. He had a strong love for the Lord and was known to often share prayers on social media.
A disabled veteran, George was a welder and maintenance worker for Texas Steel Conversion. He loved that he was able to work with his older sons for ten years. He worked for a while as a mechanic for hot rods. He worked hard to make sure no one wanted for anything.
George leaves behind his wife Kaylee Avery, his children Aaron Black, Dustin Avery, Brad Hartley, Nicole Avery, and Wyatt Avery; his grandchildren David Salyers, Katlyn Albert, Dawson Black, Evan Black, and Kylie Black; and his great-grandchildren Aiden Salyers, Kyler Perez; and best friend Terry Brown. Terry was everything to George; he helped him do repairs to the house and was his biggest support system. At the end, Terry was instrumental in helping Kaylee with George.
To honor George’s life, his family has planned a visitation on Tuesday, October 16 from 6-8 PM at Hillier Funeral Home of College Station. His life celebration, where he will receive full military honors, will also be at Hillier Funeral Home of College station on Wednesday, October 17, 2018 at 2 PM, followed by a reception at the family home.
