Leslie “David” “Dee” George was welcomed into the arms of Jesus on December 23, 2021. He was born in Fort Scott, Kansas on December 30, 1942. He graduated from Uniontown High School and Pittsburg State University. He married the love of his life Barbara Irene Davis on June 3, 1962, and she preceded him in death on November 29, 2018. He worked for Phillips 66 in Bartlesville, OK for 28 years. He moved back to Uniontown and worked the next 28 years for Agricultural Engineering Associates in Uniontown, KS.
He was a loyal husband, dad, papa, brother, uncle, employee, and friend. He lived out his marriage vow “til death do us part” in his devotion to Barbara by sitting with her for hours, daily at the nursing home till her death. He loved to work hard and play hard, but he loved his family the most. His motto was “go big or go home!” He was the best Papa by traveling all over for sporting events, plays, or whatever the grandkids were involved in.
He is survived by his daughters Debra Thomas and husband Chad of Bartlesville, OK, daughter Susan (George) Dunkleberger and husband Scott of Edmond, OK; 3 granddaughters Emily and husband Danny of Tulsa, OK; Megan of Bartlesville, OK and Sydney of Edmond, OK and 3 grandsons Davis of Norman, OK, Tyler of Edmond, OK and Noah of Bartlesville, OK.

In addition to his wife Barbara, he was also preceded in death by his parents, Les and Pauline (Buntain) George; brother Marion George; and several in-laws.
