Son of Arthur Perry and Mildred (Fields) Emberling, brother of Betty Jo and Wanda.

George was a victim of the explosion at the junior/senior high school in New London, TX, on March 18, 1937, where he was a student at the junior high. He died of a severe head injury three days after the disaster. He was preceeded by his sister, Wanda, who was also killed in the explosion. George died the same day Wanda was buried.

The Texas Ranger Dispatch published an article that details the experiences of George's parents and another family, the Yorks, after the explosion.
