George D Flemming Obituary

George D. Flemming, 88, of Tega Cay, SC, passed away on April 1, 2024, after bravely facing the challenges of Alzheimer's disease.

George was born on June 6, 1935, in Philadelphia, PA and lived the majority of his life as a resident of southern New Jersey. For the past 13 years he was a resident of Tega Cay, SC. After George graduated from Audubon High School, he went on to study business at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

After his schooling, George enjoyed a 45-year career at Equifax as a licensed professional insurance fraud investigator working a variety of investigations involving arson, burglary, suicide, death, bodily injury, slip and fall, among other types in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware.

George was passionate about many things, including a love of historical and genealogical research and participated in numerous archaeological excavations over many years. He was a charter and life member of the Indian Mills Historical Society, a member of the Burlington, Gloucester, and Salem County historical societies in New Jersey, the Archaeological Society of New Jersey, and Eastern States Archaeological Federation.

He had numerous published works in southern New Jersey newspapers such as the Central Record, Batsto Citizens Gazette, and Courier-Post and was the author of two local history books: Shamong (Arcadia Publishing) and Brotherton, New Jersey’s First and Only Indian Reservation and the Communities of Shamong and Tabernacle That Followed (Plexis Publishing). One of his fondest memories was when the Archaeological Society adopted his suggestion to erect signage commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Brotherton reservation in October 1958. It still stands today outside the Indian Mills United Methodist Church.

George is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Doris S. Flemming; sister, Evelyn Flemming; sons, Shawn Flemming and Shane Flemming; daughters, Ruth Berwick and Judy Dowell; step-children, Joan Ward and Charlotte Della Vecchia; grandchildren, Joshua Dowell, Laura Unangst, Kyle Flemming, Justin Flemming, Austin Flemming, Tessa Flemming, and Ashlyn Flemming, step-grandchildren Lindsey Della Vecchia, Anthony Della Vecchia, Nicholas Della Vecchia, Thomas Ward, and Randy Ward, as well as his great-grandchildren. George was predeceased by his father Edward C. Flemming, mother Doris I. Flemming, son Scott Flemming, and daughter Joyce Flemming.

A service to celebrate his life will be held at Palmetto Funeral Home, 2049 Carolina Place Drive, Fort Mill, SC, 29708 on April 15, 2024, at 2:00pm.
