This kind man introduced me to the LEC family. We were in the first Getting Ahead in a Just Getting by World class together held at the LEC. George heard my recovery story in class and told me about a new project ( Recovery Cafe Dayton) that I now work as VISTA/ Program Manager for. I will be forever indebted to him.
George was a huge part of the Recovery Cafe Dayton. The members loved him and he loved them. He would share stories and encourage them. He was the movie man for the cafe as well as the security. You will be missed.
My love and Condolence to the Family.
Gilbert and the Recovery Cafe Dayton

George will be greatly missed as a member of our Life Enrichment Center family. He was a calming, friendly, helpful, wise, and ever-present member of our team. More importantly, he cared about others and was cared about in return.

Our thoughts and prayers for his family.

Rest easy, George. We were blessed by your time with us on earth.

I considered George a friend and co-laborer in Christ. George would stop by my office frequently and we would talk about life. He was a integral part of the LEC team and a man who wore many hats, took care of a myriad of tasks and was a blessing to many. George told me one time that he considered me a father figure, we both got a good laugh out of that considering he was 10 years older than me. George was always willing to do whatever was asked of him and tried to do everything with excellence, I will miss him greatly. Rest easy my friend in the arms of your God.

You never know when a memory will be made...but a brief encounter with George was enough to know he was a very kind and thoughtful person. I am the CEO of Toward Independence, we provide services to individuals with developmental disabilities in the Dayton area. At our recent Day Habilitation Open House at the LEC I unexpectedly met George. He was greeting everyone as they came into the building. I struck up a conversation asking what he did at LEC, he stated he was the media person. He was so proud of what he did and the impact he had on others saying all of this with a great big smile. He truly was a very king and gentle person. I remember him through one brief encounter, I am sure he had a huge impact on others for those who were lucky to spend time with him each day! So very saddened by his passing, Rest In Peace George.

I considered George a friend and co-laborer in Christ. He was a integral part of the LEC team, wore many hats and performed a myriad of functions. George would come into my office on a regular basis and we would talk about life. He once told me he considered me to be like a father figure to him which we both got a good laugh out of considering he was 10 years older than me. All I know is that he will be sorely missed and my life was enriched by knowing him. He was a gentle soul and had a kind spirit.

I met George at FOA too. We’ve lost a true servant. He will definitely be missed.

There is not enough words to describe what George meant to myself, Mike and the entire FOA family. It started with him providing security at LEC during our weekly meetings. From there he started to run the media center so we could have visuals on all the monitors. That led to running looping videos during the meeting and getting any other presentations queued up. That led to making sure our microphones were ready to go (the meetings had grown to 80 to 100 people coming each week). That led to making sure that the Narcan table and media were ready the first wed of every month. AND all the while, after the meeting when he had gotten the wall back up, Mike, George and I would talk about the meeting and other happenings. We grew into friends. I remember in the beginning before the media, he would stand in the back and listen. I told him he was welcome to join the meeting; be a part of it. Occasionally George would offer a comment during open discussion, but mostly he took milestones for his son Thomas, who he was so proud of. George truly welcomed everyone who walked through the FOA doors and is loved and respected by so many. He will be missed and never forgotten.
