George Walter Proctor was born Feb 10, 1936 in Washington, DC. He was a member of the Piscataway Conoy Tribe of Maryland. He was born to Roger Roy and Elizabeth Era Proctor. He was often affectionately known throughout the years as "Walter, Uncle George, Monk and Big Chief."
In the early 1960's, he married his first wife, Marylee Queen and conceived a son, Walter Eper Proctor. He also helped to raise his step-son, Don Queen who preceded him in death. After the death of Marylee, he met and married his current wife, Janet Key Proctor. They often traveled to and resided in her hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. They were married in 1970 and their union lasted 50 years until his transition on Monday, July 27, 2020.
George enjoyed spending time with his family. He, along with his wife, Janet, were foster parents in the Washington DC Metropolitan chapters to over 20 different children for 35 years. He was a country boy at heart, who enjoyed fishing, raising chickens, taking road trips and playing his guitar. He also enjoyed eating ice cream and peanut candy bars. He was a great cook, loving to BBQ on the grill and cooking Sunday dinners.
