    All of us at Talk of the Town and NewsChannel 5 were so sad to hear about Steve’s passing. He was part of our family for many years, and we loved his fun personality and great storytelling as much as we appreciated his hairstyling talents and contributions to our show. Praying for comfort and peace for all who loved Steve.

    Ms. George, Steve was a very special person. He cut my hair one time while I was waiting on Jana to get hers done. I’ve know him a while but never scheduled an appointment time with him, just considered him as a friend through Jana. He never met a stranger and always wore a smile. I know he will be truly missed. May God bring comfort to you during this time of grief. Hold on to the memoires, that will get you through.

    So very sad to hear this news. Steve was definitely one of a kind. We were all lucky to know him. He blessed so many with his talents, humor, and friendship. I still have a funny caricature that he drew of me when I was in high school. I will never forget Steve.

    There are not enough words to describe what Steve meant to me and my children! I worked next to him at Trumps for 16 years but in the salon for 20 years with him. He was line a brother to me in all ways!! I wanted to kill him but also loved him beyond words!!! My children and sisters loved him like our own family and probably liked him way better than the real family!! We are broken because he’s not with us anymore and pray for Dot because she was like a mom to me too!! Love y’all and we are praying for you all!

Every time we saw each other we would always hug n tell each other funny stories when I came to visit the George home. May God continue to shine his blessings upon Mrs Dot n I will forever cherish our relationship . I know Steve is in Heaven telling his funny stories.

    Before, durning and after beauty school I kept hearing this name… Steve George. Seems like wherever I went I heard his name. Finally when I moved to Nashville for awhile, I and some of my coworkers went to a function at the War Memorial and Steve and some of the Trumps staff were there as well. I was introduced to him and I was in awe cause I’ve heard about him for years and to me it was like meeting the “hair god”.
    He was personable and he saw the best in everyone and he loved the craft.
    He will definitely be missed.
    Sending love, strength and prayers to his mother.

      I am so heartbroken. Steve was such a talent and such a merry person. I have missed him ever since he left Nashville. I adored him. He had such a quick wit and could get to anyone the only Steve could. He was one of the funniest men I have ever met. He will always be such a fond memory for me. I send my deepest condolences and sympathies to his family and all his many friends! Never a word was ever said negatively about Steve George!

    Ms. George, Steve was a very special person. He cut my hair one time while I was waiting on Jana to get hers done. I’ve know him a while but never scheduled an appointment time with him, just considered him as a friend through Jana. He never met a stranger and always wore a smile. I know he will be truly missed. May God bring comfort to you during this time of grief. Hold on to the memoires, that will get you through.

    So very sad to hear this news. Steve was definitely one of a kind. We were all lucky to know him. He blessed so many with his talents, humor, and friendship. I still have a funny caricature that he drew of me when I was in high school. I will never forget Steve.

    There are not enough words to describe what Steve meant to me and my children! I worked next to him at Trumps for 16 years but in the salon for 20 years with him. He was line a brother to me in all ways!! I wanted to kill him but also loved him beyond words!!! My children and sisters loved him like our own family and probably liked him way better than the real family!! We are broken because he’s not with us anymore and pray for Dot because she was like a mom to me too!! Love y’all and we are praying for you all!

    Mrs Dot, I have been a part of this family or over 45 years. My heart is broken over the passing of my brother Steve. Every time we saw each other we would always hug n tell each other funny stories when I came to visit the George home. May God continue to shine his blessings upon Mrs Dot n I will forever cherish our relationship . I know Steve is in Heaven telling his funny stories.

    Before, durning and after beauty school I kept hearing this name… Steve George. Seems like wherever I went I heard his name. Finally when I moved to Nashville for awhile, I and some of my coworkers went to a function at the War Memorial and Steve and some of the Trumps staff were there as well. I was introduced to him and I was in awe cause I’ve heard about him for years and to me it was like meeting the “hair god”.
    He was personable and he saw the best in everyone and he loved the craft.
    He will definitely be missed.
    Sending love, strength and prayers to his mother.
