George and I were partners in the Patrol Division, vice squad, and solo motorcycle division and shared many exciting events together. We were both members of the Gold Wing Road Riders, Blue Knights, and Cal Tex Riders and went on many rides together. Shared many good times together. His wife Gene and my wife Judy were close friends and we all attended several HPROA annual meetings in Crocket, Texas and in Fredericksburg. Took several Motorcycle trips together to Pikes Peak, Glacier National Park, and other places. I could go on and on about great times we had together and he will be missed by all of us.

Your dad had a smile whenever I saw him and he welcomed me when I came over to see you. I have good memories of those days with you, he, your mom, Tracy, and Debbie.

George always had a joke, a wink or a smile. Although it has been many years since I had seen him, his wicked sense of humor , is as clear as ever. My love and prayers to you all...Melyn

This is so very sad I worked for George at the VFW and he was so very funny and kind to me and my entire family. We enjoyed he and his wife Jean's company inviting us to his home for great conversation of the many stories he would tell us about his life, his daughters and showing us all his toys! He was truly such a warm hearted person. I will truly miss him....
