Obituary

George Norman Ausby was born on April 11, 1942 in Atlantic City, New Jersey and he entered into eternal rest on December 28, 2020. He accepted Jehovah as his personal Savior and was a member of the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Egg Harbor City, N. J. He was the third oldest child of Rosalie (Ausby) Slaughter and Kato Ausby. George, was a lifelong resident of Mizpah, N.J. and lived for a short time in Trenton, N.J. but eventually relocated to Laureldale, N.J. George was a generous and giving man who cared deeply for his family, friends and anyone that he encountered. His big smile and a larger than life personality will remain with us for the rest of our days.

George was educated in the Hamilton Township Public School System. He was a proud Vietnam Veteran and served in the United States Army from 1965-1967. He was trained as a combat engineer at Fort Bliss, Texas, and then served in Vietnam for 13 months as a machine gunner. After his service, from a young man until his retirement, he worked for the Hamilton Township Public Works Department and retired as a supervisor.

George chose to dedicate his time and service to not only those who served their nation but also to members of the community. He served as commander of the Vietnam Veterans of America and a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and was affectionately known as “Hard Block” with the Buffalo Soldiers Southern New Jersey Chapter. He was a proud member of the VFW Post 220 in Mays Landing, New Jersey.

He organized the annual pizza party for the VFW at the Vineland Veterans Home for many years. George was an active member of the VFW Honor Guard, assisting veterans by taking them to their appointments. He also served as a community volunteer at the Mizpah Summer Youth Program. In 2018, George was given the Hamilton Township Honors and Remembers Its Veterans Award by Sen. Chris Brown. During that ceremony he also received the Vietnam Service Medal with two campaign stars, the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal with Device, the National Defense Service Medal, and the Combat Infantry Badge and Expert Rifle Award. He was also given the Legion of Honor award from the Four Chaplains recognizing ordinary people who do extraordinary things.

In his past time, George loved to golf and spent every Saturday morning golfing with his brother Charlie and other friends. He loved his grandchildren deeply and spent any time he could attending their activities. He was a member of the Just Us Men’s Fellowship at First Baptist Church in Richland, N. J. and enjoyed the time he spent with the men of the community.

George was predeceased by his mother and father, brothers Charlie, Kato, Richard and sister Katherine.

He leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife, Peggy Adams-Ausby, his children, Shonna (Edwin) Corrales, Rudolph (Marie) Williams, his grandchildren, Abdul (Jamaira) Prince, Rayne Williams, Jade and Skylar Corrales. Four sisters, Ethel McNeil, Frances Blackwell, Eleanor Godbold and Evangeline (Moses) Davis, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and too many friends to count.

Public pass thru viewing will be held from 9am-11am on Saturday, January 2, 2021 at Boakes Funeral Home, 6050 Main Street, Mays Landing, NJ. Funeral service will be private. Friends and family are invited to the committal service with Military Honors at the Atlantic County Veterans Cemetery in Estell Manor, NJ at 1pm. Masks are mandatory.

Sorrowfully and Humbly Submitted,
The Family

Very sorry we all lost this great friend, and I wish all his family peace in this rough time. Knowing him since I was a child for over 40 years, I can't recall a single time he didn't put a smile on my face or have me laughing. Rest in peace buddy, you have earned it.

George was an Operator when I worked at the Road Department in the summers as a kid. He took myself and another summer worker up in the bucket of a front end loader and dumped us in a giant puddle! Great times in my youth. He was a great guy.
