Obituary for George Andrews, Jr.

Mr. George Andrews, Jr., 92, passed away April 10, 2019 peacefully under the care of Hospice. George Dewey Andrews, Jr. was born May 17, 1926, in Greensboro, NC. He was united in marriage to Jean Evelyn Andrews for 70 wonderful years prior to her death in March, 2016.

Dewey and Jean are survived by children, George “Andy” Dewey Andrews III, Debbie and Charlie Leverett, and Kelly Andrews; grandchildren, Chris, Cindy, Steve, Keeley, Carolyn, Phil and Faith; and great-grandchildren, Ben, Anna, Josh, Sam, Kynlee, Whitney, Wyatt and Henry.

Mr. Andrews was a member of the First Baptist Church in Greensboro and Durham. He was a deacon, taught Sunday school, coached basketball, and volunteered at church events. Dewey also spent his free time as a scout leader, little league coach, avid tennis player and sports enthusiast. He was a U.S. Army veteran of WWII.

Dewey worked for years at NC Mutual as a buyer, then later on instead of retiring, worked as an accountant and with young people in afterschool and summer programs. He always had a nice word to say and was a source of wisdom for many youth in church, sports leagues, and within the community. Dewey spent years of his life giving back to others, with two of his favorite’s being the Optimist Club and Civitan Club – where he was past president and chaplain.
