Obituary

Whereas it has pleased the Almighty God to take from our midst our beloved, George O’Neal Minor, a father, father-in-law, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend we humbly bow to his perfect will. As it must be to all mankind, death came to George O’Neal Minor on Friday, February 15, 2019 at his home.

George O’Neal Minor, son of the late Olevia Annie Minor Forney (Levie) and the late George Minor (Shot), was born on February 18, 1940 in Harford County, Maryland. He graduated from the Havre de Grace Consolidated School. After graduation, George worked for Chrysler Corporation in Delaware, J.M. Huber Corporation in Havre de Grace, Maryland, and at the Aberdeen Proving Ground Officer’s Club.

George married Agnes (Presberry) Minor and from this union one daughter, Deirdre (Minor) Sumpter, was born. He really loved Deirdre and talked about her to whomever would listen.

George O’Neal Minor enjoyed bowling, a tabletop game of pool, and his time spent with friends. He made bowling history when he bowled three 300 games and one 299 game in one month (December 2003). George also won the annual Harford lanes Invitational Bowling Tournament in Aberdeen, Maryland where he made history by being the oldest bowler ever to win this prestigious tournament. Deirdre and her father enjoyed the time spent together at the crab feast that comes at the conclusion of this tournament. Because he was such an exceptional bowler, George was often sought out to substitute for a regular team bowler.

Not only was he great at bowling, he also excelled at pool. George was a staple at the Senior Center in Havre de Grace and is pictured as part of their website page, advertising their game room and of course, with a pool stick in his hand surrounded by fellow pool enthusiasts.

He enjoyed his time spent with his friends, Nicholas Bernardi and Rick Dennis, to name a couple and looked forward to seeing and traveling with them on a daily basis.

George believed in God and was a devoted family member and friend. His early Christian walk was at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Havre de Grace, Maryland where his late mother, Olevia, attended until her death in 1997. His love for his family and their accomplishments was legendary. George often boasted with stories concerning his daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren. With his jovial personality, he made friends easily and he will be sincerely missed by all who loved him.

He leaves to mourn: daughter, Deirdre (Kenneth) Sumpter; grandchildren (Kenneth Jr. and Darren); niece, Demetria Hall-Smith; nephew, James Hall, III; great-nephews, Travon Malloy, Rakim Smith, Donnell Ringgold and James Hall, IV; great-nieces, Samar Bowser, Mellisa Walls and Aaliyah Henderson; aunt, Jean Johnson; cousins, Carol Taylor, Valerie Fraling, Cheryl Johnson, Doris Wiggins, Andre Minor, and Michael Minor; a host of other cousins and friends.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his grandfather, James Arthur Johnson; grandmother, Mayfield Peaco Johnson; brothers, Darrell Minor and Dennis Minor; sister, Denise Hall; uncles, James Johnson Jr., Garfield Johnson, Benjamin Johnson and Elmer Minor; aunts, Roberta Johnson and Bernice Minor; great nephew, Rasheam Smith; and a host of cousins.

Last weekend was a very hard time for me, as I know it was for many. I cannot begin to describe the impact that this man has had on my life. His Genuine attitude towards every person he met. He epitomized humility in a way that I can only pray to achieve. I feel like I have lost such a big mentor in my life and more importantly, I've lost one of my best friends. Thank you, Deirdre, for reaching out and I pray for you and your family and your friends.
