George Vockroth – 1928-2020

We are saddened to announce the passing of our earliest member George Vockroth. George was warm and witty man, with a keen mind for science and generous heart. He was a regular presence at Service and Forums, lending his thoughtful reflections to our discussions, until health and vision problems prevented him from making the drive. He will be greatly missed!

A Unitarian Universalist memorial service and celebration of life, officiated by Rev. Justin McCreary, with music by Alan Black, will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. at Wright & Ferguson Funeral Home Sanctuary at 114 Burney Dr., Flowood, MS.
