A year later... George is still much missed and often spoken of among members of the Chester High School Alumni Association. We hear ourselves saying things like "George always said..." and "George would remember..." I definitely miss our phone conversations... I learned to count on him to "ground" me and keep on track. Remembering him still does.

It doesn’t seem possible that it’s been a year since George passed - I think of him so often - sitting on the porch of the Gladstone Inn, smoking a cigarette, telling stories while everyone roared in laughter.
Miss you George 😘

Dear Jean and family,

I just heard about George's passing from a mutual friend in Falmouth. I had been trying to call him for the past few weeks, but kept getting the message that his mailbox was full. I had spoken with him when he returned from the hospital recently and know he wasn't feeling well. As you know, I now live in Spain. I'm so glad that I was able to visit him the last time that I was back in the US. Please accept my sincere and heartfelt condolences. George was a good man and will miss his hearty laugh, humor and kindness.

George served as president of the Chester High School Alumni Association for over 58 years, and was a good personal friend.

“The monument of a great man is not of granite or marble or bronze. It consists of his goodness, his deeds, his love and his compassion,” said Alfred Armand Montapert.

An important part of every reunion is my annual visit to Pine Hill Cemetery because it evokes so many memories of so many wonderful people. It saddens me to know that next year there will be a monument there for George. But his true monument is not there. His spirit lives on, in the town he loved, the Association he believed in, and in the hearts of the many he touched.
