Obituary

George Alfred Chandler, born July 5, 1939 in Melfa, Virginia, was the first son of the late George and Maggie Nock Chandler. In 1949, the family moved to Savageville, Virginia where he was raised with his god-brother/cousin, Milton Chandler Turlington, brother, Earnest and sister, Marguerite. It was in Savageville, at an early age, George accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his savior at Gaskins Chapel A.M.E Church.

George received his education in the Accomack County Public Schools; upon graduating from Mary N. Smith High School, he attended Maryland State College. George was joined in holy matrimony to the late Margaret Major Chandler, daughter of the late Sterling Satchell, Sr. and Geraldine Major-Satchell.

George decided to join the U.S. Navy and retired with distinction August 31, 1980 with 22 years of service. George spent the majority of his life serving as a Machinist Mate Chief Supervisor and was sent on deployments all over the world, including serving in the Vietnam War. After retirement, George continued to serve his country as a government contractor in Naval Maintenance Support Operations. During his leisure, he loved riding on his tractor and tending to his garden. George was also very gifted with his hands and loved to work on home projects. He loved his family and was always there to lend a helping hand.

George transitioned from this life to his ultimate reward on May 1, 2019. He leaves to mourn: three children, Regina Byrd (Harry, Sr.), Rodney Chandler, and Myron Chandler (Pearl); stepdaughter, Schanell Major; brother, Earnest P. Chandler (Viola); sister, Marguerite Veney; aunt, Lillian N. Meador; godsister, Carlyse Giddings (Eugene); devoted friend, George Ames (Linda); grandchildren; great-grandchildren; and other extended family and friends. George will be missed, but never forgotten.

George's passing is a sad loss and leaves a void for family and friends! They can be most helpful in coping with his absence! During sad times I have been comforted by reading various articles from jw.org [975 languages] >Bible Teachings>Bible Questions Answered>Life and Death>Hope for the Dead>What is the Resurrection? Jesus Christ’s death made it possible to see George again! I wish to express sympathy and comfort to all who are missing George.
