George began his journey through life when he was born to George and Pearlie Mae McClendon on the 4th day of October 1952, in St. Louis, Missouri. George, known to family and friends as Mac, attended Scullin Elementary School and graduated in 1971 from Northwest High School. At the age of 10, Mac gave his life to Christ at Pleasant Green Missionary Baptist Church, where he remained a member until joining Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in 2003.
At the age of ten, Mac started working at Hamilton Brothers, the neighborhood grocery store. A few years later he became an apprentice Butcher at the same store. Several years later, in 1971, Pearlie Mae and Mac took over ownership of the store and named it, P & G Market, in St. Louis City. In 1990, Mac began working as a meat cutter under the Meat Cutter’s Union at local grocery stores. In 1994, Mac became an entrepreneur and ventured out independently for the next 23 years, playing a significant role in the community as the local meat cutter at Mac’s Meat Market in North St. Louis City. After many years of giving back to the community, George closed Mac’s Meat Market. After Mac’s Meat Market closed, George began pursuing his greatest passion of being a fisherman. Mac spent much of his free time fishing on the riverbanks around Missouri.
His loving memory will live on forever in the hearts of his community and siblings; brother Stanley Gardner (Alicia), sisters Mablean Perkins (Andrew), Virdlean Paris (Mingo) and Evelyn Hines, a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins also survive him. George’s warm smile, passionate spirit, quick wit, love for life, and unwavering love and dedication for his family and friends will sorely be missed. We love him eternally and miss him desperately.
