Daniel was born November 26th, 1940 in Wyandotte County to Gladys and Daniel Georgie, Sr. He was a self-made artist who started pin-striping cars at the age of 16. He soon became known as “King George” in places as far west as California. King George Studios produced airbrush original t-shirts, silk screening, auto and sign painting. King George ll was recognized at state fairs, car shows, and a regular in downtown Lawrence. More recently, he invented board games, designed coloring books, and performed as a street musician. If asked, he would say he was a baseball player, but his passion was to “Support the Arts.”

King George ll “Daniel” is survived by two brothers: Burgess Rennels, Jr. and George Rennels, sons, Shawn Georgie (wife Jennifer, sons-Michael, Matthew, Mason) Trent Georgie (Children- Sydney, Evan, Trey), Vincent Taylor, Andre Nash, Saphyre Landry, and daughter Linda Brown.

    I just learned of King George just a few days ago… I was talking to my uncles girl friend from back in the day and she spoke of my uncle who as also passed and she poke of George.
    They were partners many many years ago and they would travel the Fairs and sell shirt they had designed. She looked to see if she could find George to see if he had any picture and sadly we see his is too gone.
    We would love to see if there are any great memory photos that any would like to share of those days we would love to see them.
    My uncles Name was Fred Perry Jr. please contact me on FB or by email.

    We met in Hartford Ct, he was doing sweatshirt art at the Rod and Custom show , he and
    I panel painted my new snap on toolbox, he then pinstriped it. Did a sweatshirt of my 32 ford sedan project. As a thank you, we helped finish a paintjob on his old studebaker that he was traveling the country in! A very interesting person to say the least, very glad
    I had met him and shared time with him, a loss to so manypeople whose lives he touched, great memories,

    I met George years ago as a youngster. I remember seeing at the fair painting shirts w/ the outrageous cars and creatures on them. Later when I went to K.U. I became better acquainted with George. Last few years George loved being on the street in downtown Lawrence at night.Id d RRT I’ve down from Topeka for coffee, hang out till 2:00 AM or so, often visiting with George. I’ll miss late nights, just hanging on the SE corner of Mass Ave, being w/ George. It’s Kinda’s funny, I was just thinking about him last week and how it was warm enough to hang out and visit. I’m gonna’ miss him.
