George Albert Warrick, 80, passed away on Monday, November 12, 2012 at his home.

George was born in Wayne County on January 29, 1932 to the late Dr. Luby Warrick and Ina Stevens Warrick. He owned and operated Warrick's Mill on Stevens Mill Road for many years and following his retirement he started W & S Construction Company with his son. George was a graduate of Grantham High School and had attended Campbell University and Wake Forest University. He was a longtime member of Falling Creek Baptist Church. George was devoted to his church, serving as a deacon, trustee, choir member and Sunday school teacher. He was also a charter member of the Grantham Volunteer Fire Department.

George enjoyed golfing and fishing. Above all, he loved spending time with his family and friends, especially his precious grandchildren. For those who knew him, George will be remembered by his charm, quick wit, and his smile. The love in George's life was God, family, and church. He will be missed by many.

The family will receive friends Wednesday, November 14, 2012 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. in the fellowship hall at Falling Creek Baptist Church with a service remembering George at 11:00 a.m. in the sanctuary with Rev. Dr. Billy Webb and Dr. Alton Hood officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

George is survived by his wife of 56 years, Janet Bryan Warrick; son, Timmy Warrick and wife Cindy; daughter, Kristie Warrick Kennedy; and granddaughters, Lindsey Kennedy and Sarah Warrick. He is also survived by his brother, Eugene Warrick and wife Barbara; sisters, Betty Best and Linda Harris and husband Bill; a dear friend and caregiver, Rick Brunt; and a large extended family.
