Dr. George Russell Aylor, Jr.

Today at Brandy Station: June 9, 2010

While today is the 'day' in the calender year for Brandy Station, other things are more important. This past week, the town and county of Culpeper, and the Brandy Station Foundation, lost a very good friend, Doc Aylor.

The obituary is from Monday's Culpeper Star Exponent.

George Russell Aylor, Jr., age 70, a beloved husband and father went to be with his Lord June 4th, 2010. He was preceded in death by his parents, Elizabeth Thornhill Finks, John H. Finks, George Russell Aylor and infant grandson.

He is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Page Bolick Aylor; his children, Katherine Page Aylor of Glen Allen, Virginia, and Dr. Scott Andrews Aylor and his wife, Danielle of Culpeper; his sister, Betty Ann-Finks Sevachko of Charlottesville; his nephew, Steven Sevachko and his wife, Caroline of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Dr. Aylor was born in Culpeper, Virginia and raised in Alexandria, Virginia where he graduated from Mount Vernon High School. He was a distinguished military graduate from Virginia Military Institute. After getting his DDS from the Medical College of Virginia he served 2 years as Captain of the Preventative Dental Unit at Fort Polk, Louisiana during the Vietnam War. In 1966, he, along with his wife and infant daughter, moved back to Culpeper where he opened a dental practice. He continued to work for over 45 years and was proud to have his son join him in that practice 10 years ago. He was a dedicated member of the Culpeper United Methodist Church and enjoyed serving the community.

Dr. Aylor was a founding member of the Culpeper County Planning Commission serving as chairman since 1989. His many other memberships included the Culpeper Foundation Board, past president of Culpeper Community Concert, past member of the Culpeper Hospital Board, Jefferson National Bank board of directors, the Lions Club, and State Board of Directors for the American Cancer Society.

As an avid enthusiast of history and 'student of the Civil War', he was a member of the Brandy Station Foundation and the Civil War Preservation Trust. In 2005, he was proudly named a Culpeper Colonel for his outstanding community service.

He and his wife truly enjoyed raising and racing Thoroughbred horses. Dr. Aylor's kindness and generosity will be greatly missed by all those that knew him.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, June 10, 2010 at 11 a.m. at Culpeper United Methodist Church with Rev. Randy Orndorff and Rev. Nancy Palmer conducting the service. Interment will follow in Fairview Cemetery.

The family will receive friends Wednesday, June 9, 2010 from 6 until 8 p.m. at Clore-English Funeral Home.
