George was my step Grandfather. Although I haven't seen him in awhile I will miss him very much. He always made me smile and he told the best stories. Family meals with him were always ones to remember. He loved my grandmother deeply and with his whole heart. I am very sorry for this loss. Rest in eternal peace George.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Eleanor and sons, Michael and Barrett. When I started my career with Whiting-Turner in 1970, I began working on a project in George's division and continued most of my 25 years under his supervision. At some point, my wife Janet and I became like family to George and Eleanor. We spent many Christmas Eves together, dinners at Tio Pepes, and crab feasts at our home. We also enjoyed Thanksgiving meals with them and Janet's parents where a good time was always had by all. After George retired and I had some free time, we became golf buddies and we play golf at least once a week. With George's passing, we all have lost a great and caring man. We are all the best for knowing him.
God rest your soul George.
