George L Thrower

November 23, 1942 ~ March 22, 2021 (age 78)


To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:  A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-4

A time to be Born

On November 23, 1942, in Mt. Holly Arkansas George P. Thrower and Lillie Miles were blessed with a handsome boy they named George L. Thrower.  George L. was the second child and only son of three siblings, Syrece (Ray) Gill and Sylatha (Raymond) Daniels

A time to Change

George L. accepted Christ as his Lord and Saviour at an early age.  He attended Mt. Sinai Freewill Baptist  Church of Mt. Holly Arkansas and later united with Pine Grove Primitive Baptist Church in Strong Arkansas where he served faithfully until his health declined. George L. initiated his formal education at Mt. Holly Independent School District and then transferred to Gardner Elementary School and completed his education at Gardner High School where he received his High School Diploma in 1960.

A time to Work and Serve

At an early age, George L. was forced to enter the work environment in an effort to support the family in lieu of a chronic illness that plagued his dying mother.  Throughout his life, he demonstrated a strong work ethic.  He performed labor in the logging industry for Ellic Dixon until he matriculated to a higher career and began working for Georgia Pacific Papermill woodyard as a coordinator for 42 years until retirement.

A time to Love

George L. met the love of his life Deloice Darlene Jackson.  George L found a devoted and attentive wife who embraced and nourished his family for 58 years.  To this union, four children were born Demetrich Lane (Melaney), Vedareon Fontez (Tina), Thesha Anquanetta (Jeff) Gaston, Shronda Rhesha (Bobby) McDanials all of Houston, Texas.  After many years of laughter, joy, and the weathering of many storms due to his health declining he moved to Houston, Texas, and enjoyed a very gratifying and fulfilled life among his loved ones until he gained his Heavenly wings.

A time to Live

George L. was a fierce and well-loved son, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend.  He had a very generous heart and was willing to do whatever he could to take care of those he loved.  He appreciated the value of life and the time he was given on this earth and always careful to let those around him know that he was a very trusted dependable person.  “When he said he was going to do it,  you could take it to the bank and believe it”.  In addition to spending time with his family and friends, he enjoyed a good argument, watching television, fostering dogs and cats, hunting, working on cars and creating unique gadgets to brag about.  He loved his church and was always assured to provide the chicken for the church dinners.  (He brought it even if he was late)

A time to Mourn

George L. was preceded in death by his mother, Lillie Miles Thrower, father George P. Thrower, two sons George Earl and Richard Earl Thrower, grandson Xavier Thrower, granddaughter Meghan Persley and brother-in-law, Raymond Daniels.

A time to say Goodbye
