George Richard Reddy passed away in San Antonio, Texas on September 11, 2020.

George was born in Clovis, New Mexico on December 8, 1931 to Robert Roy and Inda Rhea (Murrill) Reddy. The family soon moved to Carlsbad where George grew up. After graduating from high school, George served in the U. S. Air Force from 1950 until 1953. Shortly before his honorable discharge, George married his beloved wife Betty, also from Carlsbad, and they began a long and happy marriage.

George earned Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Geology from the University of New Mexico. While employed as a petroleum geologist in the oil and gas industry, he moved his family to many places along the Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana and overseas to England and Singapore before finally coming home to New Mexico to establish himself as a consulting geologist in Roswell. George and Betty were members of First United Methodist Church and active in the oil and gas community in Roswell for many years. Late in 2014, they relocated to San Antonio.

George was preceded in death by his parents and a grandson, Nathaniel George Mealey. He is survived by his bride of 67 years, Betty, sister Robbie Holman and her husband Wilson, brother Dan Reddy and his wife Barbara, favorite uncle James Murrill, daughter Rhonda Weiland and her husband Chip, daughter Carla Mealey and her husband Brian, grandchildren Katelin St.Clair, Colleen Olson, and Patrick Mealey, and five great grandchildren.

A memorial and celebration of George’s life is planned for the family at the time of inurnment in Carlsbad.
