George is survived by his brother, James Slater, and two sisters, Mary Beckwith and Judith Sadler. He is preceded in death by his sisters Theresa Dunham and Sylvia Graham.

A memorial mass was held at 6 p.m. Friday, March 1 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 10471 Grotto Road, Frydek, TX 77474. A celebration of George’s life followed at the church hall.
