People like George are hard to find. He had it all; dignity, high morals, exemplary character, a selfless giver of friendship, great conversationalist, (after he warms up to you), extremely dedicated to whatever he is doing. I would even say that if he argued, it was in a calm manner!
I thank him for touching my life with good laughs, great burgers and awesome stories about anything. George was definitely a man to have on your side. He was a cautious and sensible person
May his soul rest peacefully in the light of Almighty God.
How can we be sad, if we know the beauty that surrounds him now.
Goodbye for now, it truly was a pleasure and honor to call George a friend ❤

We share many memories with George.
Snorkelling on a Caribbean Cruise is just one of many great memories we have with George and Omega.
We will always miss your presence but you will never be far from our thoughts.
God speed your journey.
Love, Mike and Kris Borden

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I worked with George for several years and you always knew where you stood with him on issues. George was a very good and fair man. He will be greatly missed.
