Kevin Allan George

Kevin Allan George, 61, passed away on Thursday, May 14, 2020. Kevin spent his childhood and young adult years in San Jose, Calif. He graduated from Willow Glen High School and began his career in the family business, Joseph George Distributor. 

After Kevin’s retirement, he was drawn to Oxford. He loved the Rebel spirit, southern hospitality, and lived for the energetic atmosphere of the square.   

He leaves behind his two dearly loved daughters, Heidi George-Prevostini (Chad) and Danielle George-Malone (Brian). He also leaves behind his devoted mother, Bobbe. Kevin’s biggest joy was his grandchildren, Noe and Bjorn. He was especially excited about the upcoming birth of a new granddaughter due in September. 

Kevin was the proverbial class clown, prankster, and loved to be the life of the party. His jokes came frequently, abruptly, and were mostly inappropriate. He was a loyal friend, a generous character, and always the loudest of the bunch. If you would like to celebrate Kevin’s life, keep your passions at the forefront, help a friend in need, and take care. Go Rebs!
