Dear Beverely I was George's partner going through Pensacola and in the same helicopter squadron in Santa Ana.Every time for the last 20 years that I came through Phoenix I tried to locate him through phone books .It saddens me through current technology that I find him 2 months too late.My daughters friends father knew him from Loyola and Garrett.

I new George in two phases. The first was at Garrett, where I found him to be very energetic, demanding of high performance and very competent. That was in the late 1970's. In the early 1990's, I started to know George on a personal basis. I found him to be very compassionate, quick to empathize with other people's problems and always willing to extend a helping hand to someone in
need, While visiting us in Pinetop a week before his passing, I found that he was praying three times each day that a medical condition I discovered would be resolved quickly. George was a wonderful gentleman and we will miss him.

Dear Bev,
George was such a gentleman and caring friend. I will never forget how he prayed for Ken three times a day. He never had an unkind word about anyone, and he always saw the best in a person.

We love you both.

So sorry to hear about George. We always said we were going to get together but we waited too long. Barry Goldwater once said, "You don't own next Thursday." Frank has just gotten out of the hospital or we would have been at the service. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Jamie, Trisha, and other members of Mr. Davis' family, I have many fond memories of your father. One of the more recent that left such an impression was at Mike's sister's house for a party. It was there I viewed a man who, at times along with my own miltary father, could scare me (especially when he and my dad caught Jamie and I out past curfew) be such a softie to his grandchildren! Who knew? What I did know about your father was that his was a dear friend to my dad and had a deep love for his family. He will be missed.

George will be dearly missed by all of us at the Thursday morning bible study group. He was and is very highly revered by us all. It was truly an honor to have known him and had the pleasure to be a friend and church member with him. Sandy and I send our heartfelt thoughts of sympathy to Beverly and family. I have also left an email on George's email site for Beverly. Let us know if we can be of any assistance.
