This saddens me beyond belief. We met in high school and became fast friends. Over the following years, George was part of the group that I hung out with all the time. It was during this time that George learned to ride motorcycles. His first motorcycle was an old Harley Davidson Z90, that he bought from us. You will be there missed my brother in the saddle.

This truly saddens my ❤️. George and I ate lunch together for 4 years and shared the majority of all our classes at Peoria High School. I would run into him every so often and he would brag about his Son George and Nicki. Praying for all of his children that YOU are granted PEACE DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME. George I love you your sister for life!!
