    • Obituary:

      George H. Cloud, Sr. (a.k.a. "Sonny" and "Papa") departed his earthly home on January 6, 2017. He was born in Cotton Valley, LA on October 31 (appropriately enough!), 1929, to Sam and Isha Cloud.

      George was preceded in death by two sisters, Audrey Jean and Pat, and wife of 36 years, Mary Margaret Morrison Cloud. He is survived by his wife Barbara, son George, Jr. and wife Karen of Union Grove, son Mark and wife Tammy of White Oak, and daughter Connie Cloud-Silva and husband Ramon of Longview, stepson Noel Howlett and wife Linda of Lake Cherokee, stepson Casey Howlett and wife Tammy of Fort Worth, stepson Lee Howlett of Marshall, six grandchildren (Brett and wife Taylor, Hunter and wife Jaci, Kelli and husband Stephen Barton, Melissa and husband Kyle Lake, Sam and wife Amanda, and Mary-Alyse Silva), and seven great-grandchildren.

      At a young age, George and his family moved to Northeast Texas at the time of the 1930's oil boom. He attended Gladewater schools where he was proud to be a part "of the best high school band in the country." After George and Mary married, they moved to White Oak where they started a grocery store business and raised their children. Later, he worked at Texas Eastman and Stroh's Canning Plant. George also showed off his carpentry skills in the construction of homes.

      George dearly loved his family and friends. His door and his heart were always open to share old stories, laugh and tell jokes, play cards, and take folks fishing. He will be sorely missed. We are especially grateful for the attention and love shown by CareTeam Hospice, especially Cora Drake Hold, Carrie Henson, and Sherry Dickson. Also, thanks to his sitters Clara Cooper and Cassie White for the care they gave.

      A Celebration of Life service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Monday, January 9, 2017, in the Chapel of Rader Funeral Home of Longview. Burial will follow in Lakeview Memorial Gardens. Visitation will be held from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.
