To my great brother in-law who was always there to help me with my home projects I never had to ask you were there for me and it’s a good thing because l thought i could do it alone but I realized afterwards that you just knew a lot more than me . I will never forget the late nites together and especially the the times playing frisbee on central st. I will miss you dearly . Love you George.

My favorite memory; after having a 20 minute conversation with George I would feel 20 times more intelligent. He was amazingly knowledgeable. Whether it was about how to start a new lawn or fish for trout he was like a human encyclopedia. And, always fun & personable. RIP George - The suffering is over.
