Mr. Make Peace “George” Chalmers, Jr. was born to the late Make Peace Chalmers, Sr. and Annie Glover Brower on September 29, 1949 in Chatham County, North Carolina. Annie Lucille and the Lord God called his child “George” to depart this earthly life at the age of 71 from his residence on January 4, 2021. 

He was an active member of Glovers United Church of Christ in Bennett, NC. He enjoyed attending Sunday School and regular church service up until the point he couldn’t attend anymore. George attended Chatham High School in Chatham County and during this time he met and married Oma Lynn Thompson after graduation. During this marriage, three children were born, Cheryl, Rashawnda and Traci. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Although they are no longer married, they remained good friends. After graduation, he joined the United States Army where he served for twenty-five years. After serving his time in the military, he joined the Siler City Police Department. During this time, he attended Central Carolina Community College and received his Associates of Arts in Criminal Justice degree. His work ethics were great and inspiring. During his police career, he worked for the Randolph County Sheriff’s Department, the Correctional Detention Center in Bennett, NC and finally the Chatham County’s Sheriff’s Department as a Dare Officer until his retirement. In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing, golfing, and riding his motorcycle. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge and most importantly, he received his neck massages from all three of his girls. He always stated that each one of us had our own special technique. 

Make was preceded in death by his mother, Annie Lucille Brower; his father, Make Chalmers Peace, Sr.; and Joan Brower. 

He leaves behind to cherish his memories: three daughters, Cheryl (Chip) Early, Rashawnda (LeVance) Benton and Traci (Lavar) Hoggard; his ex-wife, Oma Chalmers; eight grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; one brother-in-law, John Taylor; nephew Tony Brewer; niece, Brandie Cotten; and a host of cousins, other relatives and friends. 


Missing You 

No words we write can ever say, How much we miss you everyday.

As time goes by the loneliness grows, How much we miss you, nobody knows.

We think of you in silence, We often speak your name. 

But all we have are memories. And a photo in a frame. 

No one knows our sorrow. No one sees us weep. 

But the love we have for you, Is in our hearts to keep. 

We’ve never stopped loving you, We know we never will; 

Deep inside our heart, You are with us still. 

Heartaches in this world are many, But ours is worse than any. 

Our hearts still ache as we whisper low, “We love you and miss you so.”

The things we feel so deeply, Are often the hardest to say. 

But we just can’t keep quiet anymore, So we’ll tell you anyway. 

There is a place in our hearts, 

That no one else can fill.
