George Charles Walton Cesil

February 10, 1966 - October 24, 2018

George Charles Walton Cesil, 52 of Colerain North Carolina, passed away on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 in Chipley, Florida doing what he loved, restoring power to those in need.

George Cesil is a fallen lineman, a hero whose life was taken while providing power for those suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Michael. He was a man of many talents; his wife often stated, “He had more talent than any person could ever deserve.” George Cesil built or rebuilt every home his family lived in. He took great pride in the details of his work and anything he accomplished. He loved music, and, his family would say, listened to it “ear blistering loud.” He’d belt out a song line he loved everywhere he went.

George Cesil is survived by his loving wife, Janice Marie Stewart Cesil and two children, daughter Meagan Nichole Cesil, and son George Charles Walton Cesil II; his father Claude Walton Cesil and his wife Laurie Ellen Cesil and family; his mother Dianna Jean Banks; two brothers Robert Walton Cesil, Claude Marvin Cesil, and their families.

George always supported and worked harder than anyone could imagine to provide for his wife and children. He is forever a role model of a strong, hard working father, brother, friend and mentor. He will be missed so dearly by so many, and we will remember our fallen linemen forever. We remember a man who changed for the better every person he encountered. We remember a man who stood for truth and the word of God. We remember the life of George Charles Walton Cesil.

A memorial service to celebrate George’s life will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2018, at 1:00 pm on the beautiful Chowan that he so dearly loved. Point Comfort, Point Comfort Road, Colerain, NC 27924. The family will receive friends following the service.
