George and his wife were my financial planning clients a couple of decades ago (at EFHutton/Shearson/SmithBarney). It was my great honor and pleasure to work with them and get to know them. I do remember George's smile, wit, courtesy, and gentleness of soul.
My prayer is that wonderful memories will serve as a balm to the family members.

I have such fond memories of Mr. George as each morning when I was at the Learning Center he would have the doors unlocked and the coffee waiting. He would be sitting in his rocking chair doing his crossword puzzles. The joy came when he would tell me so many wonderful stories. I loved all of his stories and each day I was so thankful for every thing he did for the Learning Center. You are missed Mr. George!

I was as assistant teacher at the Orchard Park Learning Center preschool for a few years and saw George nearly every day, working hard to serve. The teachers and children all loved "Mister George." He always had a smile on his face. We will miss him.

George was a great human being. Always working and doing for others. My parents loved and respected him.
He would go with my parents to the old Sunrise off Carmel drive once a month to sing while Mom played the piano and Dad gave a sermon of devotion.
I remember going to breakfast with the Orchard Park presbyterian church group to steak n shake and loved watching George take such care of his wife.
The world has lost a wonderful generous man.

We are so sad to hear of Georges passing . He was a wonderful person, if it hadn't been for him the house we lived in nextdoor would have fallen down I am sure. He was always ready to help with what ever the problem was it didn 't matter what time or what we needed he was always there. a tremendous neighbor and even better friend . He is at peace and with Nita and more than likely helping Carol with something.
Peace and Love ,Steve Perrine and Family
