My wife and I were out to dinner about 6 years ago. The food came to the table but the waitress forgot our silverware. George who was sitting close by jumped into action and brought us the utensils we needed. An act of kindness that I saw repeated time and time again.

We became fast friends and over time we shared many meals, a few cocktails along the way and enjoyed a close friendship. I miss him terribly…

I’ll always remember George walking in our house-never knocking- with packages of bread, pastries, hamburgers , ice cream, chocolate - laughing away… He was such a great friend that I will always miss. I still try to phone him with jokes! RIP Dear George

George was always full of life and love. He would come to the office and call us "Trouble" with his infectious smile and our day would all of a sudden be a lot brighter. George - we miss you. Sleep in peace.

Love, Chimmey & Ro
