i have known george since the 70's. we shared the basement of my father's house in the early 80's when he was cleaning carburetors at glen burnie carburetor i believe it was. george was determined to make something of himself and often vocalized it. staying at my fathers house allowed him the time and money to pursue his career and he did so. i remember george's funny giggle laugh and his love for bob dylan who i couldn't stand at the time. he slept on a mattress on the floor in the part of the basement where the sump pump was and we often used that as a urinal LOL. I haven't kept in real close touch with george in past years as much as we all would like too but george did offer to fly me to texas which i declined due to being wheelchair bound and its such a hassle but the offer was there. he died much to early but seemed to have lived a good life. see you in the next world george! tommy

Our fondest memories while living on Lost Maples were in the company of the Sieberts. So many dinners, drinks, laughs, supervising landscaping projects, neighborhood gatherings......the list goes on. The Tres Amigos- George, Rod and Mike. If the skis look gray above, that may just be George at the grill.. We loved that guy. We shall meet again.. God Bless

While Wendy and I only knew you and Brenda closely a short time George, we thoroughly enjoyed the times we shared. Whether it was New Year's Eve at the Harbor, you sneaking up behind us at Chachi's or you turning us on to Happy Hour mussels at Carrabba's you were always a joy. You will certainly be missed. We know you now have an endless supply of heavenly Stella to enjoy in that Black Cat Ridge in the sky.

God Bless and Rest in Peace my friend.

We are going to miss you George so much. Rich and I have great memories of fun times with you and Brenda. Dinners out or at home, and drinking shots in the backyard. Everyone who knew you knows you as truly "A Nice Guy".
We love you and miss you. Rest in Peace.

I have the same syndrome as Jon. My best memory was in 2008, we took a Disney cruise with the families that have same/similar syndrome. George, Brenda and Jon were on the same flight as us coming home. We got to hang out with them at gate, talk about the trip. Once we landed in Houston, we said our goodbyes and went home. Just by hanging out I can tell George love being able to watch Jon have fun!! He enjoy that more then anything that day. My prayers and condolences to Brenda, Jon and Melissa.,,

My daughter has Apert like Jonathan. When she was just a couple months old George asked to hold her. He was telling her that she would have a lot of surgeries and it would be rough but she would be ok. I'll never forget him saying that to her. I will also never forget those famous ribs. Im so glad i saw him this past December.
You will be missed George. Many prayers and hugs for your family. Xxxx

One of my fondest memories of George took place one summer at a hotel in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The occasion, hosted by my wife and me, was a gathering of families affected by Apert syndrome. Many of the families were meeting each other for the first time. A number of us were hanging out in the hotel lobby, including myself and George.

As it happened, there was a workout room next to the lobby, and we wandered in to check it out. I don’t remember exactly how he goaded me into getting on the treadmill. Despite being five years older than me, George was in much better physical condition than I was, but I would never have willingly admitted it. He started the belt moving at a reasonable pace, and continued to increase the speed gradually until I was struggling. And at some point, I missed a step, and then another and the speed went up again…

The next moment was a blur as my feet failed to operate and I fell onto the (now very quickly) moving belt, which shot me at full speed into the mirrored wall at the back of the room. Fortunately the only damage was to my ego. We laughed about that for years, and I have not been on a treadmill since.
We’ll miss you, George.

Love, Don, Cat and Teeter Sears

May you rest in everlasting peace Uncle George ❤️❤️You have been such a constant in my life for as long as I can remember and I know a big part of me hasn’t fully accepted that your really gone. You were always someone that I truly admired- the definition of pulling yourself up by your boot straps and creating a beautiful life. Because you were my uncle I grew up knowing that it doesn’t matter where you come from or what school you went to- if you work hard and find something that your passionate about there is nothing that can stop you.

I used to love bragging about you in elementary. I would tell all my friends how my Uncle worked for continental and knew how to make airplanes fly. I came to visit you guys without my parents when I was pretty young and I remember before I flew out to go home you took me to the tarmac and showed me all the planes and introduced me to all the people who worked for you. I knew right away that you were a fantastic boss and that the people who worked for you really enjoyed doing so and I think that says a lot about a person.

I always knew that your childhood growing up left so very much to be desired but that didn’t stop you from being the most devoted and loving father to Melissa and Jonathan. I saw you show both of them so much unconditional love and that’s how I will always remember you. You will be so very missed by every member of this family for the rest of our lives and I promise that we will make sure Grey knows how much his grandfather truly loved him and that he was a man of integrity, strength, conviction, and who was always ready to make you laugh. My love forever Uncle George ❤️❤️❤️ I know you are at peace in heaven
