George Williamson Inman

Fredericksburg - George Williamson Inman, age 81, passed away Sunday, August 9, 2020 peacefully in his home in Fredericksburg, TX. He is survived by his wife Gema Thibodeaux, brother, Frank Inman, three daughters Kim Debner, Karen Inman, and Kristin Prause, as well as six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

A proud Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket, George was a catcher for the baseball team and inducted into the Georgia Tech Hall of Fame in 1979. Following his college career, he joined the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers achieving the rank of Commanding Officer, Company D, 19th Battalion, Fort Bragg, North Carolina. He served as a Captain in the Army Reserves until 1969.

In 1970, George joined his brother Frank at Inman Construction in Memphis, Tennessee. After falling in love with the Texas Hill Country, George built his dream home in Fredericksburg after retiring from commercial construction in 1991. While caring for his "herd" of longhorns, working for local wineries and playing golf were favorite pastimes, even taking home the Farmington Golf Club Championship in 1974, in Germantown, TN, he was also dedicated to supporting the Fredericksburg community. He proudly served on the Fredericksburg ISD School Board and was a consultant during the building of the Hill Country Memorial Hospital expansion.

The family expresses thanks for the excellent care provided by New Century Hospice and asks that you consider a donation to their foundation in lieu of gifts or flowers at http://newcentury.curohs.com/. Private condolences may be sent to www.schaetter.com/obituary.

I went to Bellevue Junior High and Central High in Memphis, TN, with George, Frank, & June Inman. What a great family! George and Frank are both Georgia Tech Hall of Famers.
Frank, my sincere condolences to you and your family.
I would like to share a story with you. Several years ago, my wife and I were were driving to Big Bend National Park, and decided to pass through the iconic Texas town of Fredericksburg. When we arrived, we were looking for a good breakfast place. As we drove downtown, we saw a restaurant with many cars parked in front and decided to check it out. When I got out of the car, I saw an elderly man and asked if it was a good restaurant, and he asked where we folks were from. When I said Memphis, he immediately said that one of their most illustrious residents, George Inman, was a great baseball player from Memphis. I responded that I knew him well from sports from Junior High and High School. I asked if he knew where George might be found on a weekend day. He said you will find him at the Coffee Shop in the Super Market with his crony friends. After Breakfast, we drove to the grocery store and, sure enough, I found George with some of his crony friends drinking coffee, and in good fun they cross-examined me thoroughly as to veracity of George's fame, which I enthusiastically confirmed. I still can't believe that I ran into him in Fredericksburg, Texas, on a Sunday afternoon.
