George's obit appears in Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, Lubbock, Texas, Sunday Morning, Vol 53, #7, 29 Oct 1978, Page A-11.

George was the son of Andrew Jackson Burns and Annie Olivia Anderson.

On 21 Oct 1942 George married Lilious Kathryn Storey. George and Kathryn had the following children: Priscilla Ann, Bobby Lynn, Alice Faye, Allen Ross, and George Ricky.

The obit says that George was pronounced dead Friday afternoon on arrival at West Texas Hospital in a taxi by Justice of the Peace Wayne LeCroy. He ruled the death by natural causes.

The obit goes on to say that George was a native of Dimple. It says that he had resided in Lubbock since 1953. George was a veteran of world War II and was employed by the Lubbock Independent School District in maintenance.

The obit lists the following survivors: his wife; three sons, Bobby, George, and Allen; two daughters, Priscilla and Alice; two brothers, Eddie and Harold; three sisters, Sally Coleman of Annona, Vickie Rodgers and Eurath Babb, both of Clarksville; and 20 grandchildren.

The obit notes that services for George were in Sanders Memorial Chapel with the Rev. James Cooper, pastor of McKenzie Terrace Baptist Church, officiating with burial in Peaceful Gardens Memorial Cemetery under the direction of Sanders Funeral Home.
