We were members of Good Shepherd church and always looked forward to seeing George every Sunday. We sat together and enjoyed each other’s company for many years catching up on all the latest family activities. We were honored that he allowed us to make his birthday cake the last couple of years. George was a great man who lived his faith every day. We will greatly miss him.

We used to be neighbors and enjoyed meeting him on neighborhood walks. He would always give me his count on how many golf balls he found that week from the County Club. A nice man I will miss.
