He served two tours of duty in Vietnam, receiving an honorable medical discharge before returning to Marquette. He had resided in Little Lake for the past five years.

In his leisure moments, George enjoyed hunting, fishing, watching football on TV, specially the Packers, and was a fan of the Red Wings.

George was a member of Little Lake American Legion Post 349.

Survivors include his sister, Joyce (Larry) Dagenais of Marquette; brothers, Dany (Diane) Billings of Bullhead, AZ and Frank (Robin) Billings of Appleton, WI; many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins; special cousins, Tim and Ruth Contois of Skandia; good friend, Tori Chiconsky of Little Lake; and his feline companion, Little George. George was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Robert Billings.

Graveside services, with veterans honors, will be held at Northland Chapel Gardens on Friday, July 5, at 10:00 am.
