He leaves behind his wife Shirley Crites Reynolds whom he married 60 years ago at the First Baptist Church of Webster Springs.
George was a truck driver and heavy equipment operator much of his life. He worked for his father, Amond Reynolds, Sr. until his father passed.

He was a bus driver for Snowshoe for a couple of winters then moved his family to Sebring, Florida where he was a maintenance worker and his wife was assistant administrator for the Magnolia Retirement Home. George did not get much work so they moved to Ocoee where he drove tractor and trailer for Florida Rock and Tank Lines. They moved the headquarters to Brooksville so he went to work for Disney World. He and Shirley worked together at the Polynesian Resort for 7 years together then he worked for room service for 5 years, but had to retire because of his health.
