Obituary

Obituary for George H Wills

George Horace Wills was born February 19, 1950, in Beterverwagting, Guyana. He was the second oldest of eleven siblings, born to Samuel and Mavis Wills. In his mid-teens, his father brought the family to live in Brooklyn, New York. After graduating high school, George married, and from that union came his eldest son George H. Wills II. At eighteen, George joined the U.S. Army, serving in Vietnam in addition to completing twenty years of honorable service, he retired from the reserve with the rank of Captain.

He met his current wife and life partner Victoria while attending York College, where he earned his bachelor’s degree. From their union brought sons Eric and Evan. George proudly served New York State for thirty-four years in the capacity of a mental health specialist, recreational therapist and then transferring to New York State Department of Corrections, where he retired as a sergeant from Edgecombe Correctional Facility. In addition, during many of those years, George worked as a Case Manager for Catholic Charities and Long Beach Medical Center.

His hobbies included fishing, swimming, traveling with his family and especially bowling. He was a dedicated team member and participated in several leagues throughout his community.

Despite having numerous health complications, George exhibited strength, perseverance and a positive attitude throughout his life. He was a strong man with even stronger values. George was very active in his political affiliation, serving many hours at election polls and with the Baldwin Democratic Committee.

George was a man who could spread joy and laughter to those around him. Today we celebrate the life of a loving and amazing husband, father, brother, grandfather, great grandfather, teacher, hero, and friend.



With Love,

His Family

George and I were Case Managers together at LBMC for 10+ years which is where we met. We shared a bond, having both been born on Feb. 19th. He helped a lot of patients obtain things to improve their lives, things we take for granted, such as clothing and housing. He was an advocate for them and ran a Men's group to help them cope with everyday issues and dealing with mental illness. We took road trips together to the Rockaways and eastern Long Island when we had to place many patients who were losing their housing in LB. He was always upbeat, often singing in the office or in the car on those road trips. And, his great passion was bowling. He would say" Oh, that's my bowling night" or "I gotta go bowling".
We continued to always contact each other on our birthday with phone calls or cards even after we stopped working together. He would call me on Mother's Day and I would call him on Veteran's Day. He was a great friend and coworker and will be missed by many. Peace to you my friend and I will pray for you on our birthday. My condolences to Vicky and the boys. Your birthday buddy, Joan Sequeira
