    George “dada” Earl Hale, 84, returned to his heavenly home on January 4th, 2021 after an extended battle with Covid. His devotion to his family and firm belief in God supported him and gave him peace during his final days.
    George was born in Cottontown, TN on April 9th, 1936 to the late Thaxton T. and Mary Jane Bennett Hale. In addition to his parents, George was preceded in death by his son, Danny Earl Hale; daughter, Pamela Dawn Hale; granddaughter, Berrie Dawn Beckman; grandson, John R. Beckman Jr.; brothers, John L. Hale, Thaxton T. Hale Jr., Thomas E. Hale, Thaxton T. Hale Jr and Charles E. Hale; sisters, Mary Sue Anderson and Martha Ann Paul.
    George is survived by his wife of 63 years, Carol Jean Sheucraft Hale; son, David W. Hale (Jay) of Sun City West, AZ; granddaughters, Constance Hope Ramirez of Cottontown, Tara Melson (Tim), Danielle Hale, Lacey Walker (Eddie) of Shelbyville; grandson, Nathan Hale of Shelbyville; two sisters, Janeice Shrum of Gallatin and Mildred Harris of Cottontown; 11 great-grandchildren and 6 great-great-grandchildren.
    George had a passion to serve Christ and the church. He professed his salvation at a young age and served in many leadership roles in the church. George was a member and deacon at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church for approximately 50 years. He was a faithful servant to the Lord and strong in his faith. He will not only be missed by his family, but also missed by his church family and his abundance of friends.
    George was one of a kind. He never met a stranger. Every time you saw him he had a big smile on his face and a new joke to tell. He loved spending time on his sons farm down in Shelbyville and spending time with all of his family. He loved feeding his birds and then coming inside to his recliner and watching them eat. He would also try to feed anyone who ever came to visit whether he knew them or not. George could fix just about anything and build anything. He loved to garden, but his favorite pastime was to “snoopervise” and you could always count on him being at Bojangles for breakfast with his buddies.
    A family only celebration of life service will be held at Cole & Garrett Funeral Home, White House, Friday, January 8th at 12 noon with Brother Mike Shrum officiating. An hour of visitation will be held from 11 AM until 12 noon. Masks are required and no food nor drink will be permitted. Burial at Walnut Grove Cemetery will follow the service

      I knew Mr George pretty much my whole life. His oldest son & i were good friends all the way through school. We played football 7th through 12 grade. Mr George was one of the most easy going laid back person i have ever know. His property backed up to the back side of my family farm. He will be so missed from this world. Love & huggs to Ms Carol, David & the rest of his family.
