George Henry Loadholt was born June 30, 1950, in Hampton County, SC, to Mr. Ben Loadholt and Mrs. Ethel Lee Behlin Sanders. At an early age, George earned the nickname “Booster” from his family. George was quiet in nature and was a good man. He received his education in the public schools of Hampton County, South Carolina, graduating in 1969 from North District Training School – Varnville, SC. Upon graduation, George joined the United States Army and served his country proudly for three years, being honorably discharged in 1972. Upon completion of his tour of duty, George returned to Miley, South Carolina, to be with his grandmother, Mother Addie Behlin, whom she reared as her own son. Upon the demise of his grandmother, George relocated to Varnville, SC, to be near his sisters, Gloria Kinard and Betty Jane Gantt.
George met his devoted friend and mother of his first born, Brinda Pringle, the fourth Sunday in August, August 22, 1971, at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church – Varnville, SC, where he became a part of the Pringle Family for 50 years. They had a great relationship and understanding for each other. The Pringle Family accepted George as a “brother-in-law.” He was a great father to his children and grandfather to his grandchildren.
George was a dedicated and devoted worker for many years at Westinghouse and International Paper – Hampton, SC.
In light of the sorrow in our hearts, it is with humble submission that we accept the will of God.
