As a teenager, George did most repairs on my vehicles and was one of the friendliest and fair men I know. He was the Best! Although I have not had contact with George for the past 50 years, I recall him fondly.

May God bring comfort to his family and friends. He will always remain in my heart. Rest In Peace George.
