George also made crafts for Christmas, family & friends, along with Connie helping George to make many things for the craft shops where they had a craft booth. He loved the challenge of making items that were complicated & required skill & time to create the finished crafts.

He truly loved his wife, Consuelo (Connie) very much along with his family/grandkids while watching them grow up over the years!

George had a wonderful sense of humor. He was delightful & always smiling. He always made people feel comfortable to be around him, and had a special talent to make people feel so comfortable.

If I could marry you today, I would marry you all over again! I Love you so much Connie, I don't want to live without you! You are my Angel! As long as I have my Connie, I have everything!!!"

I am so sorry to hear of George's passing. I worked for a doctor he saw. I had 2 small children at the time, girls, and he made them a lot of toys and they still have them to this day. They are now 17 and 18. I still have his wooden flower box he made for me. He and Connie were wonderful to me and I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing. I will be praying for connie and the family.

We have such wonderful memories of George that we will cherish forever.We couldn't have ever ask for such better neighbors. George and Connie have such a glow about them when you are around them that you couldn't help but smile. You could always feel the love. George was probably the kindest man we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Thank You George for all your hard work and kindness in this world and for making all around you smile. You will be greatly missed. Your Neighbors, Cindy and Curt
