George "Bubba" Rhodes

December 7, 1941 - June 26, 2021

George “Bubba” Rhodes, 79, of Beaumont, died Saturday, June 26, 2021, at Summer Place Nursing and Rehabilitation, Beaumont. He was born on December 7, 1941, in Port Arthur, to Margaret Nowlin Hooper Rhodes and George Wright Rhodes.

George served in the United States Air Force before starting work at Texaco and then moving into the Petroleum inspection field. He worked at Charles Martin and Associates and SGS until he retired. George was very mechanically inclined and loved to tinker and fix things. If you were willing to listen he would tell you a story. Not always the same story but usually a funny one. He knew love and heart break. He knew happiness and disappointment. He learned of forgiveness and forgave and offered amends where he could. He learned of Jesus and knows him as his savior.

Survivors include his daughter, Rebecca Underhill and her husband, Mark; sons, George Webb Rhodes and Joe Rhodes and his wife, Carolyn; grandchildren, Robert Underhill and his wife, Elissa; Allison Underhill; Michael Underhill; Alex Rhodes; and Victoria Rhodes; sister, Jenny Hamilton and her husband, L.H.; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his parents and sisters, Myrtis Fletcher and Sally Phillips.
