George Robert Nock, Jr., beloved son of the late George Nock, Sr. and Viola Bailey Nock, was born on May 12, 1948 in Accomack County, Virginia. He slipped into the arms of the Lord on May 28, 2023 at Sentara Heart Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia.

George was educated in the public schools of Accomack County. At an early age, he entered the workforce in the farming industry.

George was known by his family and friends as “Cornbread,” “Corny,” “Chicken,” and “Chicken George.” He would say that the ladies called him, “Sweet Corn.”

In his spare time, Cornbread enjoyed cleaning, cooking, watching westerns and soap operas, and transporting his family and friends. His great passion was dancing. He was known all over the shore for his moves on the dance floor.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Calvin Nock and Otha Nock.
