He was born May 24, 1934, in Oklahoma City. He was the fifth child of eight children born to Manon Mauldin and Gladys (Campbell) Mauldin. George grew up in south Oklahoma City and attended Capitol Hill Schools. At the age of 18, he enlisted into the U.S. Army and served in the 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, N.C. during the Korean Conflict.
