George worked for many years as a farmer before moving on to open his own lawn mowing business where he worked until his passing. He was a member of the Chesapeake Beagle Club and bowled with the Methodist Men's Bowling League. George enjoyed hosting his frequent "Monday Music Nights" in his home. A lifetime member of Trinity United Methodist Church, he was also their oldest active member. George loved to tell jokes and play cards. He found his greatest joy in spending time with his grandchildren.

George is survived by two sons: George Park III and his wife Teresa, and Samuel W. Park and his wife, Sheila; three daughters: Catherine P. Wevodau and her husband, Robert, Nancy L. Racine and her husband, Gene and Barbie J.

In addition to his parents, George was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 64 years Barbara Park, and six brothers and sisters.
