I wish I was able to do more with Alexis George while she was around. I had a crush on her for since the first day I met her. She was one of my first friends when I moved to Fernandina Beach and we met during the first week of her freshman year of high school. It’s sad to think that I was the one that introduced her to the idea of flying airplanes and was also someone who had her sign up for the aerospace class with me. I love her, but I am too late
Alexis Mae George
Alexis Mae George, 18, passed away on Friday, June 18, 2021, doing what she loved the most--flying. An accomplished young lady at her young age, she had proven she was an angel on earth and certainly became a heavenly angel on that day flying directly into the arms of Jesus.
Alexis was a rising star and a promising prodigy. She was working on hours in the cockpit to obtain her private pilot license and excel at her future career. She had completed her first solo flight and first
“emergency” landings during which she landed without engine power.
Alexis, the daughter of Kimberly “Kim” Carter George and Michael W. George, was born in Fernandina Beach and a lifelong resident of the community she loved. Just over two weeks ago, she graduated with honors from Fernandina Beach High School and was looking forward to attending Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in the fall.
During her school years, Alexis was a successful student and could be found on the basketball court as number “5”. Off the court, she enjoyed skateboarding, trivia, and anything water related. Whether swimming, surfing, or paddle boarding; on her own or with friends, Alexis enjoyed life and loved being with others.
Alexis was an active member of First Baptist Church. She was known for her work with the 4–5-year-old children and the audio-visual ministry which had become so important during the time of COVID. She worked to help with the live streaming of Sunday morning worship services.
Alexis was a beautiful young lady, inside and out, whose infectious smile would light up any room. She could, quietly and in her own special way, make those around her feel special without any effort. She could just look someone in the eyes, smile and flash her irrepressible “peace sign” and those around her could not help but feel special and know Alexis loved and cared for them.
Alexis was predeceased by her paternal grandfather, Alfred George, and her aunt, Kristina Marie George.
She leaves behind her parents, Kim Carter George and Michael George; her brother, Dalton William George, all of Fernandina Beach; her maternal grandparents, John J. and Paula M. Carter, of Fernandina Beach; her paternal grandmother, Mary Anne George, of Fernandina Beach, as well as several extended family members and many friends.
A celebration to remember Alexis’ life will be held Saturday, June 26, 2021, at First Baptist Church at Fernandina Beach beginning at 12:00 PM. The family will receive friends from 11:00 AM until the hour of the service.
A sunrise vigil will be held at 6:00 am on Wednesday, June 23rd at Beach Access # 31 in Fernandina Beach.
Additionally, there will be a vigil at Fernandina Beach Airport on Friday, June 25th at 8:00 pm.
