George was preceded in death by his grandparents, Fannie and Clarence “Bull” Ballard; mother, Lou Ford; father, Pete Holland; stepfather, Frank Ford; sisters, Nancy Boutwell and Jean Buras; and a great-granddaughter, Rosalyn Doorman.
He is survived by his wife, JoAnn Holland; children, Melinda Corley (Derek), David Holland (Andria), Haywood “Bubba” Moss (Amanda), Stacey Carrillo, Sharon Holland, Jacob Smith (Sarah), Joshua Smith, and Anna Smith. He was blessed with numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
While there are countless things that could be said about George, he was a long-time member of Christian Harmony Baptist Church and served as a reverend for over 20 years. He was diligent in spreading the gospel to many people throughout the years. Next to his Savior, George’s top priority has always been his family. He was an incomparable father and husband for nearly 40 years. He loved being the preacher for the Butte Tribe of Bayou Bourbeaux and was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed spending time in nature. He will forever be loved and missed by all that knew him.
