My memories of Uncle George, he was one great guy, always laughing, always jovial and in good spirits, making the best out of any situation. My deepest regret was the fact that throughout the years, we never seen much of one another until he and Aunt Irene came visiting with Uncle Don Doane, and Uncle George would stay here at our place in Martin City and for hours, he would reminisce and tell stories of days gone by when he and my Aunt Franny lived with mom and Dad, and all the stories of his capers and fun times with my dad and mom, and my Aunt Franny and Uncle Pat Toner. He also told many many stories of his life and times in the UNited States Navy, which he served our country proudly. He was a man to be deeply admired and I was darn proud to call him my Uncle, one great man indeed, who took very good care of his family, and he also shared stories of the many places and travels throughout his Naval career with his beloved wife, Aunt Irene. They traveled the world, done and seen a lot together.
My most favorite memories was the times Uncle George would come stay in our guest house in Martin City, and I would accompany him to go visit Uncle Don Doane, his brother. We would spend hours visiting, reminiscing, and laughing, and sharing.....the stories were precious, and to listen to the antics of those two fine gentlemen, and the comoradarie, was priceless. I shall cherish them all to the end of my days. My dad and Uncle George were very close and very fond of each other. Makes me wish I could have been with them thru it all, I guess I was, but way too young to participate in their capers, but the stories will make me smile, and laugh, forever.I took special pride in rebuilding his engine for his 1946 ford truck, we spent some time together in the shop. God bless you Uncle George. My most sincere sympathies to Aunt Irene, Mary, Denise, young George, and Family. His memories live on forever

I am so sorry to hear of this great loss to our family. I am grateful for the time shared together through the years when Uncle George and Aunt Irene would come to visit in the Flathead. Our family lost all of our family photos during the 1964 flood but growing up I remember a picture my Mom had of her "baby brother". Thanks to our cousins George and Lorraine, we now have some family photos from the early years, including photos of Uncle George. I have precious memories of the stories Uncle George and Aunt Franny would tell of their lives during our visits in these later years . Sending love and hugs.

My Uncle George. How can someone be expected to share one memory when he has left me with so many. He and his family always came to the flathead between stations. Hearing his stories enhanced my sense of curiosity of what is out there in this world.
He let me spend the summer with them when they were stationed at Barber Point, Hawaii. The best gift at that time in my life.
Then we get busy in our lives and make the mistake of letting those bonds go dormant. Then when they leave us we think of them and their family and how special they are.
To Aunt Irene, Mary, Denise, and little George I send my love.
