I enjoyed working with George while I was at PAC. In February, he told me that he had gotten married and that he was very happy. I give my condolences to his family that I am sure will miss him greatly. He was an inspiration to everyone that met him.

I've known George for years, although never met him face to face. George was my "go to" guy for fixing the PAC equipment we have in our Lab. He could help me solve any problem big or small, and he always made time for some personal conversation in the process. Whether we were talking about a flash point unit, our childhoods, his love to dance, or my love of the pacific ocean, I always felt like I was talking to a friend. My heart felt condolences go out to the entire Shaver family.

George was a friend and colleague who helped so many and asked for nothing in return. I worked with George at PAC and he was always ready to offer support to all the companies global customers who needed help with their problems. He will be badly missed by all his family and friends, but also the people around the world who used his wealth of knowledge and experience to help them out.
Gem of a guy who I will certainly miss!

George was a class act – one of the nicest guys I've ever met. He was one of those guys you could always rely on, fun to be around and just an overall decent human being. The world lost a great one and we will all miss him! God bless you George – you are getting your reward in heaven.

When I joined PAC I knew immediately that George was a sharp cookie! I have worked in several World Class Research Labs with some of the brightest Scientists and George could compete with any of them, bar none! Plus, he had a lot of horse sense. He made me feel at home and always promptly answered my questions, no matter how silly they were. He took me under his wing. I shall greatly miss you my friend. Rest in peace you old fart and dear friend you have earned it. Gratefully yours, the young fart.
