    George was a real treasure. Anyone that knew him was well aware of his great sense of humor.

    George was tough. If he disagreed, he’d have no problem telling you.

    He was always good to me and I always enjoyed visiting with him.

    Those that attended his 70th surprise birthday party were amazed at his dance moves! I still laugh when I think about it.

    I will miss him very much.
