George E. Briddell Jr., 75, of Pinebluff, passed away Tuesday, July 30, 2019, at FirstHealth Hospice House.

George was born Jan. 11, 1944, in Stamford, Conn., to the late George E. Briddell Sr. and Susan Bureski Briddell. George proudly served in the United States Air Force, where he served as a military police officer.

Upon leaving the military, George worked for over 30 years at Fidelity Bank in Connecticut. He was a very humble man with his deep faith in God. George, being a great conversationalist, was said to be a true gentleman, and his laughter was contagious. He enjoyed traveling, especially to Hawaii, and referred to it as his “island paradise.”

George also enjoyed watching animals in his spare time. Upon his arrival in Pinebluff, he cared for his late mother, Susan Briddell; and his sister, Georgia Reale. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

He leaves behind his niece, Christine Zoppi Timmons and her husband, Scott, of Pinebluff, as well as a nephew, John E. Zoppi, of Pinehurst.

The family will receive friends on Friday, Aug. 2, from 2–3 p.m., at Crumpler Funeral Home, Aberdeen. A graveside service will be held in the Pinebluff Cemetery following the visitation.
