George “Tommy” Traylor

(WADLEY) George “Tommy” Traylor, 88, of Malone passed away in his beloved “Barn” on Feb. 8, 2023. He was the son of George Henry and Rosa Nell Lynch Traylor.

George was a retired Chrysler executive and worked for Chrysler for 30 years in various management positions. In retirement he continued to represent Chrysler in legal liability and warranty cases throughout the Southeast. “Tommy” enjoyed the Tallapoosa River in its natural state. Hunting, fishing and farming with his kids and grandkids gave him much joy. He was a friend to everyone and always supported the Wadley Bulldogs and Crimson Tide.
