"VLAHAKES, GEORGE, age 88, of Birmingham, passed away on March 4, 2010. He was an Elder at Hope Bible Chapel. He served in the U.S. Air Force in WWII and taught school in Birmingham for over 50 years. He is survived by his brother, Pete Vlahakes; and sister, Ethel Graham. Graveside service will be held Sunday, March 7, 2010 at 3:00 p.m. at Forest Hill Cemetery. Visitation will be held Sunday from 1:30-2:30 p.m. at Ridout's Roebuck Chapel."
Brother George's life and testimony far outweighs this simple notice. He was truly a "brother beloved", and his consistent testimony, whether in the schoolhouse, the chapel, or wherever his labors carried him, will be long remembered.
