George Ulyess Preslar, 76, of Norwood, passed away Tuesday, September 20, at his home with his family by his side. George was a beloved man about town who always enjoyed speaking with both friends and new people alike, as no one was a stranger to him for very long. He was known as someone who would cheerfully help out anyone that was in need if he could and stood by the promises that he made. His genuine care for and interest about those around him made George a true treasure of the community. A proud military veteran of Vietnam and a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, George was a friend to many that will be greatly missed and fondly remembered as a lover of life and laughter. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Linda; three daughters, Sandy Erskine of Albemarle, Sherri Hoyle (Stephen) of Mount Gilead, and Samantha Morris (Dan) of Albemarle; siblings Ruth Stipe (Glenn), Margie Mauldin, Joe Preslar, and Becky Scott. He has 7 grandchildren, Jennifer, George, and Breanna Erskine, Elliana Hoyle, Hailey, Emily, and Hunter Morris, and one great-grandson Jaxon Sullivan. He was preceded in death by his parents Graham (Jim) and Sarah L Preslar of Norwood, and his brother David R. Preslar.
