George Elliott Prescott

Stapleton, GA  – George Elliott Prescott, 72, loving husband of 52 years to Norma Faith Clark Prescott, entered into rest Wednesday morning, July 11, 2012 at University Hospital.  Funeral services will be held at 3:00PM on Friday, July 13, 2012 in the James Funeral Home Chapel with Sheriff Gary Hutchins, Rev. Tim Crosby, and Rev. Donald Lumpkin officiating.  Interment will follow in the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church Cemetery in Avera GA.
One of nine children born to the late Irene Tinley Prescott and the late King Edward Prescott, George was a lifelong resident of Jefferson County and was a member of Mt. Moriah United Methodist Church. He enjoyed fishing, working in the yard and cooking for his family—his specialty was a concoction he called goulash—and riding his golf cart all over Stapleton visiting with his neighbors.  Like all Prescotts, he loved to talk and being around people but come “dark” he wanted to be home. George loved his family, especially his grandchildren who brought him great joy. This Stapleton icon will be greatly missed.
Other survivors include his three sons, George E. Prescott, Jr. (Elaine), Kevin E. Prescott (Leigh Anne) and Clay Prescott (Cassie); eight siblings, June Rooks, Hattie Lou Kitchens (Sam), Ann Brown (Warren), Edward Prescott (Carol), Kenneth Prescott (Barbara), Iris Bazemore (Gary), David Prescott, and Gordon Prescott (Edie); six grandchildren, Kristie Sammons, A. J. Sammons, Justin Prescott, Courtney Prescott, Jayna Prescott and Taylor Prescott; two great grandchildren, Cassidy and Cheyenne; one uncle, Elwood Rabun (Mildred); and numerous nieces and nephews. Pallbearers will be Robbie Grace, Tony Kelley, Donald Manning, Larry McGraw, Nathaniel Newsome and Kip Prescott.
The family will receive friends at James Funeral Home from 6:00-8:00PM on Thursday, July 12, 2012.
Come With Me

The Lord saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So He put his arms around  you
And whispered “Come with me.”

With tearful eyes, we watched you suffer
And saw you fade away.
Although we loved your dearly,
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
A beautiful smile at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best.

It’s lonesome here without you.
We miss you so each day.
Our lives aren’t the same
Since you went away.

When days are sad and lonely,
And everything goes wrong
We seem to hear you whisper,
“Cheer up and carry on.”

Each time we see your picture,
You seem to smile and say,
“Don’t cry. I’m in God’s keeping.
We’ll meet again someday.”
