George, Adam

Obituary

Adam George, Irving, TX, was born on August 5, 1943, in New Orleans, LA, to the late Reverend Theodore and Anna Marie Warren George and died on December 28, 2018 at 12:15 AM in Carrollton, TX. 

Adam is survived by his beloved wife, Dillis George of 41 years.  He was a loving father to Candace George Ortega and husband, Raul Ortega, Irving, TX, and Astrid George, New Orleans, LA.  Succeeded by granddaughter, Deja Auntrell George, New Orleans, LA., his two brothers, Jules George and wife, Jackie George, Gretna, LA, Samuel George, New Orleans, LA., the late Myron George, Lloyd George and Phyllis Smith, mother-in-law, Gretel Morgan, Frisco, TX, a father-figure to Ashanti George-Clark, New Orleans LA, and Arnette George, New Orleans, LA; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and friends. 

Adam attended Walter L. Cohen High School graduating May 1964.  In 1968, he obtained a Certification for Tracer Draftsman after attending Jefferson Technical Institute, Metairie, LA.  Later in 1987 he received an Associate Degree in Business Administration after graduating from Delgado Community College. 

Adam was a veteran who served his country on his ship from 1962-1965 as an Electronic Technician.

Adam enjoyed three major careers in his lifetime: A Draftsman/Draftman Supervisor at Exxon Company, New Orleans LA, and Consolidated Technical Services, New Orleans, LA; Sales Consultant, Mossy Oldsmobile, New Orleans, LA and Postal Clerk, Irving, TX.

Adam accepted Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior in 1982 at Faith Church, New Orleans, LA.  Shortly after, that year he was water baptized together with his wife. Adam opened his home to host a Home Care Group for over ten years, served as a Telephone Counsellor and served for a short term with the hospital ministry.

Adam had many hobbies that he loved which included fishing, bowling and dancing-his all-time favorite thing. Adam was quite the collector of antiques and other collectibles.  He enjoyed everything about that hobby– the research, the tv programs, the history and conversations about it.  He loved to drive to his vacation getaways and always wanted to take family along.  Adam was a people person.  He loved to talk and always thought he was right.  He had the most to say when it was time to say goodbye or goodnight.  You couldn’t get out the door fast with Adam. He was a giver and was always willing to help.

Memorial Services will be held on Friday, January 11, 2019 at 12:00 pm in the Brooks Family Chapel of the North Dallas Funeral Home, 2710 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, Texas 75234.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

    I was so sorry to hear about Adam’s death. I know he suffered for a long time. The good Lord stepped in and took him out of his misery, and brought him home. I know it is very hard for Dee, and Candace but God will give them the strength to go on. God bless and keep you Adam. RIP

    I’m sooo sorry Adam didn’t get his healing on this side, but he did get his healing. And he’s now walking on the streets of Gold. Dee Dee, I can only imagine how sad it must be to say goodbye to your husband Adam of 41 years. WOW!!! And Candace and Astrid no young lady wants to say goodbye to her Dad and I’m sooo sorry that you do. Candace, you were blessed with 28 years with your Dad which is a blessing! My Dad went to be with Jesus when I was 18. I had just graduated from high school. He never got the chance to walk me down the isle for my Wedding or see any of my kids. Remember the good times you had together. Praying that the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard y’all hearts and minds in Christ Jesus! May the Joy of the Lord be y’all strength. Y’all are in my thoughts, on my heart and in my prayers! XOXOXO

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
