Mark and I are going to miss George so much! He was such a wonderful example of what a man walking with the Lord should be. The House Blessing hanging on a wall in our home will always be a fond memory of George, as he was so gracious as to come and perform this blessing on our new home just a few months ago. Heaven has gained!

I used to work with George during his days at the OCC's San Antonio Field Office. I am very saddened to hear of his passing. George was a good man. One of the best, actually. George was a commissioned examiner when I started with the agency. He was one of the few people who took a personal interest in my career development. He was mentor to me. I admired George and in many ways tried to mirror my actions after his. He always displayed the highest level of integrity, honesty, and common sense on the job. Co-workers and bankers respected and listened to him.
I have specific memories of working with George that have stuck with me over the years. In the old days in San Antonio, the OCC required examiners to travel in pairs. George and I paired-up on several occasions to go off to some far flung community bank - probably Laredo or some West Texas dusty highway intersection. I have memories of sitting for hours in the car with George and getting into long philosophical conversations. Meaning of life, right versus wrong, were a couple topics I remember. Although we seemed to have failed at solving the world's problems, I enjoyed those times in the car. For whatever reason these experiences were unique to traveling with George. Perhaps it was his background in theology that paved the way for such talk.
My wife, Michelle, and I would like to express our deep sympathy and condolences to George's family. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult period.
