George realized that he was meant to be a funeral director when he was in the fifth grade. That’s when George’s uncle, a motorcycle enthusiast who was always dressed in his riding gear, died. George’s grandmother had his uncle dressed for his funeral in a suit, which didn’t look right to young George. His uncle never wore a suit! George asked his grandmother about that choice, and his grandmother agreed that his uncle should be dressed in motorcycle attire. That's when George knew that he would someday do his best to personalize funerals, making sure a person’s final wishes and the family’s needs are met.
