Sherry, our prayers are with you and the rest of the family for your loss. I remember your 50th wedding celebration that I was able to attend. I was just looking at some of the pictures I took a few days before George's passing. I also remember the family picnics with all the cousins and his trips back to Kansas City, KS for visits as we got older. George was always smiling and joking. We know he has a new body now free of any pain and illnesses. Linda and Ted Riley (cousins)

I worked with George at Stewart and Stevenson in Houston, Texas.
George was a fun guy to work with. He was always up for a joke and we called him crazy George. He was so fun loving.
My prayers go out to his wife and family.

My memories with George was the time that we worked together at Stewart & Stevenson. I looked forward to his smile every day and how I had to stay on my toes because he like to play jokes on me. The main thing we had in common was fishing, sharing our stories and who caught the most and biggest ones (which was always me lol). I will miss him so much and sending prayers to his family.
