George Wilson Lindsay III, age 78, died peacefully, surrounded by family, at his home in Savannah, Georgia on February 26, 2023. He was the only child of George Wilson Lindsay Jr. and Lillian Hunter Lindsay of Savannah, GA. He was born on January 25, 1945 in San Diego, CA.

After 45 years with NBSC (Synovus), George retired and moved to Savannah, GA to manage the family real estate business. In addition to banking and real estate, George was a dedicated member of his community. He served as president of the North Myrtle Beach Rotary Club, as well numerous boards throughout the state.
