On May 9, 1955 in Normangee, Texas, David Lee Dixon and Inez Coleman became proud parents to a baby boy. They named him George Earl Coleman. He was the oldest of two children. George attended and received his education at Normangee I.S.D.

George accepted Christ at an early age and united with Zion Baptist Church in Normangee. He moved to Dallas and attended church but remained a member of Zion Baptist. Later, he moved to California to live and fellowship with Holy Deliverance Pentecostal Church in Pasadena, California. George was a moderate person and a wonderful father.
