He was one of the most kind, gentle, generous and funny Uncles there ever was. We enjoyed spending holidays with Uncle George and Aunt Evelyn year after year. He would hide two dollar bills throughout our home for us to find months later. :). So many great stories to live on. You will always hold a special place in our hearts. Rip Uncle George. Dance the night away. We love you.
