We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. II Corinthians 5:8
As we reflect on George’s legacy, we know that he was truly a child of God. He fulfilled his calling at St. Paul AME Church, in Fairmont, NC for many years. He served on the Usher Board, the Steward Board, and he was a male missionary in the Page-Gaddy Women’s Missionary Society. George also was a member of the Male Chorus in which he loved taking the lead in the song “Thank You, Jesus.”
George had a passion for supporting others, participating in several food drives, clothing drives, and sharing the Word of God with others. However, he never thought of himself as nothing more than as a Servant of God, in which he considered ‘SERVANTHOOD’ to be a privilege.
Also, as part of his legacy he served his country for two consecutive terms in the US Army. He was not of legal age to enter, but because of his determination and eagerness to serve; his mother signed an authorization document allowing him to enlist. George worked for more than thirty years in the Textile Industry in NY and Gerber Food in North Carolina until it closed. Brother Littles was an excellent chief preparing ox tails, peas and yellow rice and let’s not forget his delicious sweet potato pies.
George leaves behind one sister, Clara McCalla in Valrico, FL, five brothers, Leon Littles, Charles Gilchrist, Fairmont, NC, Ronald Gilchrist, Staten Island, NY, Vincent Gilchrist, Brooklyn, NY, Harold Gilchrist, New York, NY, one sister-in-law, Francine Littles of Las Vegas. NV. - In addition, he has three nieces, Lisa Clark, Christina Littles, and Amanda Swift, two nephews Michael and Gerry Littles along with two stepsons, Ronald (Rochelle) Robinson, (Ackerman, GA, and Michael Robinson, (Tammie), Lake Spivey, GA, twenty-five grand children, and many great grand children many special friends and relatives.
As a servant of God, George understood that God has a plan bigger than what many can understand. He realized that believing in Jesus Christ, as he did; death is only a prelude to eternal life with God.
