It is with a mixture of profound sadness and boundless joy we say goodbye to one of the greatest men we have ever known, George Stevens III. Sadness because we will miss him dearly, and joy because we know he has shed the bonds of this earthly plane and is now with his loving Creator and Savior.
George was born on July 25, 1934 and left this world behind on June 3, 2019. In his almost 85 years here he lived an extraordinary life. Extraordinary not for some momentous achievement in business or the arts, but rather for the positive impact he made on almost everyone who was fortunate to know him. For some it was his humor, he was quick with a joke or funny comment. For others it was his integrity, he was a man of character and honesty. For still others it was his steadfast dependability, his word was his bond and he was a man you could count on.
For those of us who knew him as Husband, Daddy or Grandpa it was his unconditional and seemingly limitless love. For his wife of over 60 years, Barbara Jean Garvin Stevens, George was provider, protector, lover and best friend. For his children Bryan, Lisa, Bobby and Tara, he was a Daddy who never let there be any doubt as to his love for each of them
As his children grew up and got married George’s love grew to include 2 new sons in Larry and Dennis and 2 daughters in Jenny and Shannon. And his love continued to grow with the addition of each new grandchild: Eric, Brooks, Robby- and then his wife Lexi, Luke, Todd, Josh, Cody, Liam, Aaron and Ella.
So, we invite you to join us in a celebration of George’s life and legacy of love. We’ll be honoring him at 2 PM on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at: Beulah Baptist Church, 11491 Veterans Memorial Hwy. Douglasville, GA 30134
Please note: instead of flowers, George would be honored if you would make a donation in his name to St Jude’s Children’s Hospital or some other charity of your choice that benefits children. Children always made him smile.
