George Leslie Oliver, 84, of League City, Texas, died Wednesday July 20, 2022 in Alvin, Texas. George was born April 29, 1938 in Anco, Kentucky and had resided in the Alvin/Manvel area since 1958. He attended Manvel’s First Baptist Church and worked as a retired production planner for Wyatt Field Services. George loved to talk about all of Kentucky and especially his subject alma Car Creek High School which he considered the birthplace of basketball, including its 1928 national tournament and 1956 state championship. He created a family tree made up of more than 70,000 members of his family and did not hesitate to tell you about it. He loved playing dominoes and made sure you followed the rules unless you were a grandchild. He loved hot dogs, cornbread and pickled bologna. He didn’t like potato skins, snakes and especially “Watch out!” (the family recognizes this one). He especially enjoyed watching the events and extracurricular activities of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He rarely missed an event watching his grandchildren in the rain, heat or freezing temperatures. George was proud of his family and spoke to you with love even though you were a stranger.

George is predeceased by his wife, Winnifred (Winnie Obrian) Oliver; parents, Leslie and Sarah Oliver; sisters, Yvonne Collins and Lovetta Griggs; brothers, James E. Oliver and Daryl Oliver.
