Mr. Mayne was an active member of First Baptist Church of Saks and the Celebration Choir. He was known for his beautiful woodworking and scrolling. His hobbies included painting with oils, watercolors and acrylic. He was an avid golfer and built model airplanes. George was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-granddad. He will be greatly missed by those who knew him but most of all his family. He always said he was blessed with the best family and friends. The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses of Gadsden Regional Medical Center Seventh Floor and Dr. Webb Sledge and staff for providing loving and professional service. The members of First Baptist Saks and all of our friends have been wonderful during this time and we appreciate every kindness.
