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.
