George was a faithful, lifelong member of Christ Temple Church and Bethel Temple Assembly Church. He served in many capacities, including the Prison Ministry. George was active and was well-known throughout the City of Williamson, WV. He visited the sick, provided spiritual guidance to many, offered God’s Word, and studied the bible with everyone that would listen.  

George was born February 7, 1943, to the late James T. Blackwell and Ida Mae Artis-Blackwell in Williamson, West Virginia.  He lived a life filled with loving family and friends. Enjoyed studying the bible and sharing God’s word. He cared very deeply for his family, friends, and community.
