So sorry to hear about George!

I worked for George in Seattle in the mid 90's painting, and doing odd jobs around his house in West Seattle. I just though about him out of the blue today.

Funny story. I was working on his house and somehow knocked down a decorative plate in his kitchen. I felt bad and left a note offering to pay for it. When he found it, it was obvious it meant a great deal to him. I could tell he was upset, but recognized that I took ownership of the situation. He was gracious and let it go.

George was a badass.

I am so sorry to hear about George. I was lucky to have worked with George in NY for a couple of years. He was very quiet, but very kind and willing to give the extra effort. My thoughts and prayers go to his family. May his memory be eternal.

George was awesome, a friend and a leader I looked up to and respected. He always had a good sense of humor and a quiet wisdom. He was a good man, mentor, coworker and friend. We will miss him as we hold on to the good memories.

George, I'll miss you, you will be in my heart and mind forever, you were a great big brother and taken away from us too soon. Someday we will all be together again for eternity. You'll always be a super hero to me. Love you,

I just received this tragic news from one of George's long term friends from Bonn American High School. We all saw George at the DC reunion last fall and seeing George at these reunions was a good reminder of why we have them. George had accomplished much in life, was a sincere and good person. It was always rewarding to reminisce with George and to hear his ideas on how the world works. My condolences to his family.

George was a truly good man and friend. It is tragic that he was lost to us at such a young age, but I'll always remember the great times we had. It was obvious at his funeral how many people he had touched over the years. Looking around the room and the quality of people honoring George, it is clear what a great guy he was!

I'm saddened to hear of George's passing. He was a close friend in high school (the best stereo, the stories!) and a kind and gentle soul who I would forward to visiting in Seattle. Condolences to his family and friends.
