My friend George - we'll miss him

He was born January 3, 1923 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to the late George and Miriam Matthews Binderim. George was a member of Cabot Church of Christ. His passion was helping the needy.

In June 2005, KARK awarded him a Community Service award and a year later a Certificate of Recognition. In February 2007 he was recognized by Legislative Proclamation presented by Representative Susan Shulte and recognized for Random Acts of Kindness by Mayor Eddie Joe Williams. In April of this year Mr. Binderim was given a certificate of appreciation for all his work by the Cabot Church of Christ.
