George Louis McNary Sr, 88, passed away peacefully, October 12, 2018, surrounded by his loving family. Family and friends will gather for visitation for George from 9:00AM to 11:00AM, Saturday, October 20th at First Baptist Church, 301 N. Glass in Victoria. The Homegoing Celebration for George will follow at 11:00AM with Reverend Fred Hobbs, Pastor of Mount Nebo Baptist Church, officiating. George will be laid to rest beside his beloved wife of over 63 years, Willie Mae Fryer McNary, at Memory Gardens Cemetery in Victoria. Repast will be held at First Baptist Church in the Fellowship Hall.
George was born one of ten children to the late James Edward and Sarah Ann Edwards McNary on January 10, 1930 in the Edgar Community of DeWitt County, Texas. After graduating high school, George served his country in the United States Army during the Korean War and was a life member of VFW #4146. George married his love and sweetheart, Willie Mae Fryer, March 19, 1955 and they moved to Victoria. George was a faithful member of Mt. Nebo Baptist Church, where he joyfully served as a Trustee and in the Male Chorus. He worked for Victoria Ready Mix as a cement truck driver and later retired from The Fordyce Company, after 33 years.
George was a dedicated and faithful 32nd Degree Mason, serving as a member of the Masonic Boaz Lodge # 261 AF & AM and United Most Worshipful Scottish Rite Grand Lodge AF & AM, of Texas, Inc. He served the lodges holding numerous positions, including Worshipful Master, District Deputy of #8 and #9, Grand Marshal Emeritus, and was elected King numerous years in a row.

George enjoyed family gatherings, cattle, crossword puzzles, playing solitaire, fishing and catering BBQ. Grandpa will be fondly remembered for his easygoing spirit and sense of humor. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought him great joy.
