George “Junior” W. Grizzle, 74, passed away on Oct. 19, 2017, at Lakepoint ElDorado.
Memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, led by Paster Wade Graber, at Kirby-Morris Funeral Home. Burial will be in La Harpe Cemetery at a later date.
George was born on March 10, 1943, in La Harpe, Kan., the son of George F. and Minnie (Jones) Grizzle. George worked for Butler Rural Electric for over 30 years, driving pole setting trucks and operating equipment. He was an avid collector of watches and clocks and was quite skilled in repairing and maintaining timepieces. George also had an insatiable need to buy and sell cars. He would check out back alleys and front yards for that special “cream puff” he could buy low, fix up and sell.
George is survived by: his daughter, Cheryl ( Curtis) Crager of Wichita; son, Greg (Virginia) Grizzle of Chula Vista, Calif.; loving companion, Sandra Grizzle of El Dorado; grandchildren, Clinton (Whitney) Crager, Christopher Crager, Dakota Grizzle and Diego Grizzle; great grandchildren, Carson, Maxwell and Oliver; and his siblings, Lionell, Elva, Darrell and Alvin.
He was preceded in death by his parents; grandson, Calvin Crager; and three siblings.
Memorial contributions in George’s name may be directed to First Baptist Church of El Dorado. Please sign his online guestbook and leave a memory of George at www.kirbymorrisfuneralhome.com.
