I have many memories of George. He was an asset to Butler County as a resident and as a public servant. George was an excellent backhoe operator and saved my life many times by getting me out of a ditch he dug to repair a water or sewer line, just before a cave in. I lost track of George after he retired. He dup up over half of Queen Acres replacing and repairing sewer lines. A long time ago when he went on vacation to Florida he left his lunch box behind. Jim Hall and I filled it with Florida oranges as a joke and sent it to him in Florida. I will always remember him. The world lost a great man and a great person. He liked to use the term. Pot Licker. And I miss hearing him say it. Rest in peace George. Thanks for the memories.
