LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Sunday, mourners said goodbye to a longtime philanthropist. Services were held for Murphy George, who passed away Thursday at the age of 82.
East Texans said George's lifetime work in the community will never be forgotten.
"[He] always wanted to know whether we needed anything," said Marjorie Limbrick. "And, even after my husband passed, he still checked on me to see that we [were] all right and all my family was all right. We are going to miss him very much. He was a very kind person."
