I remember George, Darrell , and Joye so fondly. Lots of good times on Ute. I wish the family all of Gods peace and blessings..George is with Darrell and Joye now, and if know he is complete again after seeing his kids in heaven.

Elsie and family, Bobbye and I are so sorry to hear about George's death. I have such great memories of working with George at Shell all of those years and carpooling with him. We had great times together. Even though I haven't seen him that often since retirement, every time we saw each other we had a good visit. Praying for you, your daughter and the grandchildren. I know you will all miss him so much. He loved his family. Myrle Bryant

George's Family and Loved Ones,
It is with my deepest sympathy I share your grief and loss. I worked with George and went hunting once with him and felt he was a friend and
co-worker. We worked many projects together and have many memories of our relationship. He was truly respected and valued as someone who could always be approached and talked with.
I know he had a deep hurt and grieved over early losses in his family. He always had a good heart for his love ones and always respected others.
I pray George is at rest now and we will always miss him.
