George Harris Lipscomb, Jr.



George Harris Lipscomb, Jr., age 90, passed away on Friday, June 17 at his home in Bay St Louis, MS surrounded by his loving family. George was born on October 18, 1931, in Columbus, MS to the late George Harris Lipscomb Sr. and Lucille Key Sullivan. He was preceded in death by his brother, Joseph Randolph Lipscomb. He is survived by his loving wife of 59 ½ years Judy Lipscomb, his daughters, Annabelle Moran (Gene) and Robinette Lawler, his grandchildren, Shawn Moran, Kyle Moran (Heather), Brooke Case (Jay), Whitley Lawler (Isaac Spragg) and Tyce Lawler, his great-grandchildren, Hudson Case, Henderson Case and Braze Spragg, his nieces Laura Anzalone, Lindsay Bryan and nephew J. R. Lipscomb.

George graduated from Lee High School in 1950 where he played football, was a member of the C Club, a member of Sigma-Pi, and was the manager for the tennis team. He graduated from Mississippi State University with a degree in Business and Finance, then as he would always say, he had to go to that school up north to get his Juris Doctorate Law Degree.  

In 1963, he moved to Bay St Louis where he did title work for Magnolia Title to help with the development of Stennis Space Center.  George was an attorney for over 50 years and served as Judge for the City of Bay St Louis for 25 years.  His unrivaled work ethic and compassion allowed him to touch many lives throughout his career.  

He was a member of the Mississippi Bar Association, Hancock Bar Association, the Bay St. Louis Masonic Lodge 429, Pi Kappa Alpha, Gideons International, Phi Delta Phi, a chosen member of the Moot Court Board and reigned as the King for Our Lady of the Gulf Carnival Ball in 1981.

George was an upstanding member of the Main Street United Methodist Church. He served on their Board of Trustees and was a member of the Men’s Bible Class.  He enjoyed anything to do with Mississippi State Athletics, the Atlanta Braves, the New Orleans Saints and working out at the gym. 

Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the Memorial service on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, at 1:00 pm at Main Street United Methodist Church, 162 Main Street, Bay St Louis, MS.  Visitation will begin at 11:00 am until service time at the church. Interment will be private, at a later date. Riemann Family Funeral Home, 141 Highway 90, Waveland is serving the family.

As a father he taught us how to love, how to work hard, how to multitask (reading the paper and watching sports), and that life may not be fair but it’s a wonderful thing!

For the celebration of life, we would love to have you write down a favorite story or memory of him so we can see how he touched the lives of others.

The family would like to thank Dr. Bert Chevis and staff, Ochsner Hancock, MS Home Care and Southern Care Hospice Services.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Main Street United Methodist Church Book of Remembrance, Hancock County CASA or Hancock County Animal.  The Riemann Family Funeral Home, in Waveland is proudly serving the family.  Share condolences, memories and photos at
