George was a loving husband to Adele and loved his family & Adele's family. George & Adele were so happy to have found each other after losing their first spouses. How lucky for all of us! We'll miss you, George.💖

My condolences to Auntie, Amy, Mark, and the whole family. George was a special man and we'll all miss him. I'll remember him for his easy, low key personality. A life well lived!
