I’ve had a few George lectures in my time. Made me love him even more. He was always respectful and honest. I thank him greatly for my very best friend in life, Lonnie. Rest In Peace and thank you for your guidance durning my teenage years.

Uncle George and his family lived across the street in Austin, Texas on West Avenue, when our family first moved from Waco to Austin. I was 7 years old. I remember Uncle George coming over, always with a smile on his young handsome face, and I called him my favorite Uncle. He earned this title of favorite uncle, because he would always life me up in the air with a toss, and hold me high in his arms. Being a middle child, it was nice to have the attention and someone to hold me.
Over the years, I've seen uncle George here and there. I also recall visiting him in Round Rock when he had pigs/hogs. It was always fun to run around his yard.
Uncle George was funny and had a good sense of humor. He was always happy to see me when we met. George and his brother Rafael, were both hysterical when they got together.
I'm so happy and grateful that Uncle George has the large family that he does, and that he had the love of his family during his final moments.
My condolences to the family.
God rest your soul Uncle George. Godspeed.

My first memory of Uncle George is very vivid. He stopped to visit his father and brother at their shop. My granddad and dad started smiling as soon as he walked in. I remember those dimples, those laughing eyes, and smile that would not stop. He looked like happiness walking in the door.
He started joking, laughter and teasing among the grown-ups began. Uncle George took time to make sure my sister and I were included. He always loved children and it was evident in the way he took time to make sure we were smiling and laughing as well. I won't forget, I can close my eyes still see that happy smiling face. A lovely memory of a lovely man. Thanks Uncle George I love you...you still make me smile.

Mr. George was our neighbor for years in Whitebrush loop. He was always kind and was a blessing to be around. He blessed my belly when u was pregnant with my first son and I wish he had met our second. He was a strong individual and I know he’s with God. My deepest condolences to your family George, but I know heaven is hearing some great stories right now.❤️ Love to you all.-Katie Reidy
