Obituary

Ret. Lt. Col. George McFadden Stokes, 95, of Dermott, AR fittingly passed away on Veterans Day, Monday, November 11, 2019. He served as a B25 bomber pilot in the U.S. Air Force during WW2 and retired from the military in 1984. He was a proud graduate of the University of Alabama with a degree in electrical engineering and thereafter was hired by NACA (later known as NASA) where he worked at Langley Air Force Base as a design engineer with specialization in wind tunnels. After retiring from NASA he moved back to his hometown of Dermott to farm the land that was near and dear to his heart.
Mr. Stokes is survived by his two sons George N. Stokes and Mason F. Stokes, daughter Alicyn Stokes Kozlowski, 8 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren.
