George Hurt Obituary
Hurt, George Cralle Jr.

George Cralle Hurt, Jr. passed away in his sleep on May 12, 2016 in Albuquerque, NM at the age of 80. He was preceded in death by his parents, George Cralle Hurt and Alfrda (Freda) Hurt and his partner of 34 years, Press Jamison.

He is survived by his first cousins, Martha Irby Hunt of Charlottesville, VA, Randolph Hunt Ball of Los Osas, CA, Wallace Bennett Hurt of Blackstone, VA, Dr. George Adams Hurt of Lynchburg, VA, Jethro Meriwether Hurt III of West Palm Beach, FL, Mary Virginia Darby of Deerfield Beach, FL, Barbara (Bonnie) Hurt Cox of Highlands Ranch, CO and many friends. George was cared for in his last six months by Thomas Kearney and Monserrato Rose Asamoah, who provided him much comfort and friendship.

George was born and raised in Blackstone, VA. He graduated from Fork Union Military Academy and the College of William and Mary with a degree in Accounting. He was a member of the Kappa Alpha Order at William and Mary.

He spent many years working for the Fairfax County School District in Fairfax, VA where he met Press. After their respective retirement, they moved to Florida where they lived for several years before moving to Albuquerque, NM. As a travel agent, Press arranged for them to see the world, enjoying what each country had to offer.

George volunteered at KNME, Albuquerque's public television station. He was a member of the Sons of the American Revolution and the National Huguenot Society. He was a member of the Black Tie International Society and he enjoyed the group's dining and fellowship. He loved ice cream and hardly a day went by without his having a scoop. He was a people person who loved conservation and playing cards and a kind and generous person and will be deeply missed.

He directed that a portion of his estate be set aside for William and Mary to be used for the education of women entering the medical field - a fund bearing the name of his mother.

A private ceremony will take place at a later date.
