I was so sorry to hear about George’s passing. I got to know him very well at the coffee shop meetings. I would still see him at these gatherings when I would come home from Fayetteville. It was such a pleasure to get to know him. Our thoughts & prayers are with his family...!!

I have very fond memories of George and Mary Jo. As my first boss he was an excellent mentor and what he taught me helped me throughout my life. He made me a better supervisor when I became one.
Thank you George and my god bless you and your family.

Dear MaryJo, Georgene and Dave, please accept our sincere condolences in George’s passing! I smile when I think about all the time we spent at your house and all the teasing (in love) I got from George and MaryJo! All the time we spent shelling purple hulled peas on the front porch! Confusing your dog Corky and my brother Corky!!🤪 I could go on and on!! What a great soft spoken guy he was! You were very blessed to have him for so long and I know you will miss him! You are all in our thoughts and prayers! Sheila and Fred

I am sorry for your loss. I really enjoyed working with George at Monsanto Muscatine. I still fondly remember some of George's
comments and have to laugh. He is one of the people I enjoyed knowing.

I met George at the Monsanto Plant in Muscatine Iowa. After being transferred to the Monsanto Plant in El Dorado, George and I enjoyed several trips to TALLADEGA Speedway and NASCAR racing. He was a GREAT co-worker and friend, and will be missed.
