Sherrill Hoover George, 89, of High Point passed away on Sunday, Feb 11, 2024, at Hospice of the Piedmont. Sherrill was born in High Point, NC, on May 31, 1934, to the late Riley George and Lula Yarborough George.

In addition to his parents, Sherrill was preceded in death by his brothers, Howard George and Henry George, and his sisters, Gaynell George Wolf and Mary Francis George.  He served in the Army and was in the National Guard for more than 20 years.  Sherrill was a longtime member of the Lion’s Club and a banker by profession.  He was a member of two churches during his lifetime, Welch Memorial United Methodist and Wesley Memorial United Methodist.

Sherrill was a Duke fan, and he would often take his family to Duke football and basketball games.  He enjoyed taking fall trips to Mabry Mill and tried his best to make it to the coast at least once during the year.  Family and friends meant the most to Sherrill.  He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, and he was fondly known as “Pop”, a name which his dear granddaughter, Ashley, assigned to him early in her life.

Sherrill is survived by his wife, Rena George of High Point; son, Lee George (his wife, Pamela George); and granddaughter, Ashley George.

A Graveside Service for Sherrill will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 15, 2024 at Floral Garden Park Cemetery.  Reverend Doctor Jeff Patterson will officiate.  Full military honors will be provided by the United States Army.

In lieu of flowers, please direct your donations in Sherrill's memory to the Alzheimer's Association.
