Obituary

George Frederick Poultney III, 58 years of age, peacefully passed away on June 28th, 2021 with Gino (his best friend considered his brother) and Jerrell (his beloved soul mate who has cared for him over the last 18 months) by his side at his travel trailer located on his favorite spot at Sandy Point on the Santa Fe River, Branford, FL.  He said it was time for him to be with his mother and father again.

 George was born June 11, 1963 in Passaic, NJ by his parents: Gail Audrey Bosland and George Frederick Poultney Jr.( who have both preceded him in death). He is survived by his siblings: oldest half-brother twins Rickey and Mike Conklin, Oldest sister Patricia Ann Poultney Kirsling, Sandra Lynn Poultney Garlic, and younger sister Bonnie Gale Poultney Watson, and half-brother Thomas John Mosher.

George gave his last name to his son Tyler Aaron Poultney. Over the years he became a father figure to many as  they continued to be a part of his life and spent the final day with him at the Santa Fe River: Bobbie Kelly, Kathy Conrad, and Sunshine Dick. He also became close to their husbands and children. He cherished Tyler and Jasmine’s children, his grandkids, Tessa Lynn Poultney and Theodore George Allen Poultney, his youngest grandson.

 He married Kimberly Poultney and built a life, along with building their house on his property in Lake City, FL. He took in his stepchildren Joey Tice, Brittney Cagle, and Lindsey Davis as his own. He loved and cherished his grandchildren Joecoby, Maelis, Joseph, Jack, Ar'mauni and D'asia very much. He will always be extremely close to Brittney Cagle, and her son Joecoby. Wherever George went, Joecoby would always  be by his side.

George was an HVAC and carpenter by trade. He was very proud of the house he built and cherished that he had taught Joecoby how to help him with some of the tasks. He worked for Country Comfort for 18+ years. He considered his boss Chris as part of his family along with his best friend Colin, and they would do anything for each other. Chris and Colin have helped George out in so many ways while George underwent many medical procedures and life changing moments.

 George always said you need to work hard and play even harder. He lived by this. He loved the outdoors and all activities: boating, fishing, scuba diving, golf, riding ATVs and motorcycles, bowling and most of all being with family and friends having a great time. George was usually the life of the party! A celebration of life will be announced on a later date.
