George Allen Mozingo, a dedicated carpenter with unwavering faith, passed away on January 5, 2024, in Muskogee, Oklahoma.

His meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail earned him respect within the industry. George's dedication and commitment to his work were evident in every project he undertook. While George found fulfillment in his career, his true passion lay in his faith and love for God.

His unwavering devotion inspired those around him and left an indelible mark on the lives he touched. In addition to his religious pursuits, George had several hobbies that brought him joy throughout his life. He had a fondness for riding mules and frequently found peace in the tranquility that came with riding his mules. Furthermore, George possessed impressive skill in handcrafting bows and arrows, which he used for hunting. On October 10, 1953, George married the love of his life, Joan Crawford, with whom he shared many cherished memories. Their union was marked by loyalty, love, and mutual support that served as an example to all who knew them. George Allen Mozingo's legacy will endure through the memories he created with his loved ones and the lives he inspired.
