My favorite memory of George was in 8th grade summer school..I was in an english class with all boys! George sat in front of me and Steve Amo sat in back of me. George would knock my books off my desk and Steve would pull my hair. All through the years George and I have run in to each other....through my employment at the Bowling Alley, Super Duper, and finally, Walmart. What a great guy he was. He will truly be missed.

I miss you terribly George. My heart goes out to everyone that knew you .I can't believe that you'll never walk though our door again and say" Let's go". We camped-played cards- and had Fish Frys with Andy- Me- Aunt Yun- Aunt Jean and you always got one to go for Cindy. Everyday we spoke or you were here. When you'd leave I always got my kiss and an "I love you! out the door you'd go and say "LATER" and I'd say it back to you. The nickname you gave me when we were kids "FRANK", will never be spoken again. I love you and until we meet again "LATER"!

You -me -Andy and Scott our Friday night Fish Dinners with Aunt Yun and Aunt Jean. I will never be called N.Y. the nickname “Frank” again. Every time you were here you always gave me my kiss and said you loved me- you’d turn smile and say “Later” and I’d say it back! I love you and I’ll see you “Later!

I grew up in Lisbon for most of my child hood and went to school with your children. But just in the last couple years while being neighbors with David and Sarah got a chance to meet George! He was a great guy always helping his family any way he could.. my family and I got to hang out with George David and Sarah at Lisbon beach . We had a great time talking and fishing .while George cruised around in his golf cart. If I could say one thing to George right now I would tell him how great of a job he did at raising a wonderful family .. i will always consider your son David as a brother .. rest in peace George Sr.

George and Cindy have been our neighbors since 2004 when we moved to Lisbon. George always had a smile on his face. I would be checking the mail or be pulling in to our driveway and he would wave and smile. I will cherish all our conversations we had whether it was in the grocery store, his yard, or our yard. I would watch football on Sundays and would have the door open in September, goerge told me he could always tell when the Giants were playing cause he could hear me yelling or cheering.😁 My thoughts and prayers are with the Adams family. It will never be the same without you. RIP my friend.😢❤️
