George S. Clary

George Silas Clary was born July 2, 1943 in Natchitoches, Louisiana to Walter Monroe Clary and Ruby Lola Clary. He grew up in a small community barely large enough to accommodate the curve in the road known as Robeline, Louisiana.

On October 23, 2018 Mr. Clary entered into his eternal home with Jesus.

In 1961 George married his bride, Collie Jones. Shortly after their union, they made their way to Houston, Texas. By day, George was constructing high rise buildings as well as molding a beautiful home life for Collie and their children. They welcomed two beautiful daughters and after much anticipation, hope and lots of prayer, they finally had their son.

George was a man of few hobbies but had an abundant love for his family. His idea of a good time was building a homemade go-cart for his kids. Some of the most special times of his life were spent with his wife Collie, as they traveled from the mountains in Alaska to the Hill Country in Texas to build and minister youth camps. It was on a particular vacation to Tennessee, when the kids were young, where George shared his dream of living on top of a mountain. That dream came true in Lead Hill and he and Collie were happy there for many years.

One could say George Clary was a lighthouse. His desire to live for the Lord and generous heart resulted in the Clary home being a safe harbor to many children who needed shelter and nurturing. Even when fostering other children, his own children never once doubted the love their dad had for them. He was their confidence in time of doubt and their biggest fan on the sidelines of life. He was their compass when they felt unsure of their path. Bopís grandchildren knew they were each his favorite - because he often reminded them. His siblings also felt the constant, unwavering love from their brother. He will always be remembered as the one with the special birthday song - because he never forgot to sing it.

Most important, George Clary was a man of God that led many people to the Lord. He was a witness - even near his final days on earth.

Mr. Clary was preceded in death by his parents, Walter Monroe Clary and Ruby Lola Clary. Sister, Iree Stoker, and brothers, J.D. Clary and Kenneth Clary.
