George and Karen are a wonderful couple who showed regularly they loved each other. We are cousins and friends. Every time we would come into town try a new and fun place. We were always welcomed and felt very important. I looked forward to spending time with both. Last trip got to see Zion national park so beautiful. My heart is heavy but I know George is in a wonderful peaceful place probably in charge of fun and laughter. As the Waves of memories come peace and love to you both.
Love,
Mary,Vic and Anne

I worked with George a few times in my career. When I was a student, he was utterly frustrating to work with, but years later when I worked in the shop with him, I realized there was a genius to methods. Sometimes I would just listen amused from my office as he would expertly (and comedically) handle the barrage of pleas for exceptions to policy, because they were "indeed in a unique circumstance." On the personal side, I loved talking about motorcycles, rides, and travel with George, even sharing a beer or three in the conference room with the shop at the end of a usually long week. George was a Nellis institution that will be sorely missed by all (except the students).

My interactions with George were brief, but I was always impressed with the jovial way in which he could, quite kindly, tell people to buzz off. He took guarding our nation's defense secrets seriously and I appreciate his ability to uphold standards while also ensuring max participation and learning. He will be greatly missed!

George's humor was legendary; he made "work" a place you wanted to be at...if for no other reason than to hear the next story. His willingness to take on additional work, outside of his required duties, made all the difference in keeping the shop running at full speed. Thank you, Karen, for sharing George with us.

God speed, my friend...and, when we finally meet again, I'll look forward to hearing that next story over a cold beer.

George was the gatekeeper protecting some of our nation’s greatest combat capabilities. He did his job well with skill, persistence, and humor. I am lucky to have served on the team with George and I was deeply thankful for all he did. So George, if by chance you are hired as heaven’s gatekeeper (you do have the work experience), please keep us in mind! In the mean time, I will think of you every time I see a golf magazine laying around. God speed my friend.

George was one of a kind. I enjoyed our many conversations about life over his early morning bowl of cereal. He was a shining light to those around him and had a way of adding a little joy to your day. George we will miss you. Until we meet again; I pray the grace of God shine upon you.

From George's long pointless stories to the good ones I always enjoyed his conversations they are what made George, George. I will remember him most for that and remarking about how bad my golf game was. There is not a time that goes by when I swing a golf club that I don't hear George in the back of my mind commenting on my swing. He was always a true friend in the work place and out, he will always be remembered!

George,

Your amazing personality and friendship will be sorely missed. I will cherish the times we were able to hit the links and all the time you spent telling me about the government and your life over the last 40 years, you always found a way to make people smile. Your life experience and insight have made me a better man and I will be forever grateful. I know you are up there smiling down on us :) May your soul be relaxed in Gods hands.

I’ve known George since I was in the second grade, and I’m honored to have grown up with him in my life. I looked up to him like a father, with a word of advice and a story to go with it for every situation I ever found myself in. He was a great man, and he will forever be missed.

George's sense of humor is what we will remember most. He certainly knew how to make people laugh. He also paid attention to what people liked even when he barely knew them. He gave Derrick ketchup... you had to be there. Thanks for sharing your lives with us Karen. We're praying for you, God bless.
