George was born in Texarkana. Attended school at North Heights. His father died in 1919 in the influenza epidemic.
George graduated from school in 1927 and in October 1929, he persuaded his mother to sign for him to enlist in the Navy. He went to Little Rock, AR for his physical and was sworn in.

He NEVER resided in Little Rock.
