    • George accidentally shot and killed his grandson, Willard Abernathy, while they were on a hunting trip in 1946. (Read about it here.) George was so distraught that he didn't touch a gun again for years. After he finally returned to hunting, a shotgun exploded in his hand, costing him two or three fingers.
