George Poindexter, RBA Hall of Fame Member

On Friday, December 3, 2010, George Bernard Poindexter, 85, of Roanoke, Va., went to be with his heavenly Father. He was born on January 6, 1925, in Franklin County, Va., to Roy H. and Zelma B. Poindexter, both deceased. He married Marie Wright in Roanoke, Va., on November 23, 1945, and was preceded in death by her this year. George was a life long member of Huntington Court United Methodist Church in Roanoke, and was a charter member of the Crusaders Sunday School Class. He served his church proudly over the years as an Usher and on various committees. He was a 1942 graduate of William Fleming High School, and served in the United States Army 4th Infantry Division in Europe during World War II. He was employed by Norfolk Southern Corporation in Roanoke for 42 years, and retired as Assistant Manager of Payrolls in 1985.
George and Marie held dear the William Fleming Golden Colonels reunion activities with their friends for all their life. His favorite hobby was that of bowling, and he served many years as Secretary Treasurer of the Roanoke Bowling Association and the Virginia State Bowling Association. He was honored by election to the Virginia State Bowling Hall of Fame, and had life membership to both associations.
