HANOVER—It is with great sadness that the family of Walter Joseph Nott Jr., 62, better known as “George” by the people who were lucky enough to have known him, of Hanover announces his sudden passing on May 30, 2018.
George was born in Richmond and spent his teenage years in White Stone, where he met and started dating his future wife, Becky Benson Nott. This is where he created some of his most treasured memories.
A family business, Frank H. Nott Inc., brought him back to Richmond where he worked until the business was sold in 1991. He later worked at Nott Recycling Inc. until his retirement in 2017.
George knew the true meaning of loyalty and was a man of his word. He had genuine values and morals he lived by. He loved his westerns and we loved his cooking.
George was preceded in death by his parents, Judith Pembroke (stepfather Albert) and Walter J. Nott.
He is survived by his wife, Becky; his two children, Walter Nott III or ‘Tre’ (Christina Bradley) and Meaghan Allshouse (Chris); his granddaughter, London Nott; siblings, Judith or ‘Tommie’ Wall (Andy), David (Kim Hicks), William (Cathy) and Gabriel (Dana); stepmother, Patricia B Nott; nieces and nephews, Stephanie Selph, Austin, Brighton, William, Chrissy Wells (Nick), Bailey, Jack, Gavin; and great-niece, Riley Jones; two special aunts, Martha Millis Henry and Mary Nick Nott Saunders (Jack).
Due to George’s generous nature, he was able to give the gift of life by being an organ, tissue and eye donor. A celebration of life was held from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 3, 2018, at the Dominion Payroll headquarters, 3200 Rockbridge Street, Suite 300, Richmond.
