So many wonderful memories of our friend George. From cooking chicken perlow, eating low country shrimp boil on fine china, strolling Brookgreen Gardens, eating Veteran’s Day dinner out, spending time at the beach, watching the total eclipse of the sun, helping us hang pictures, Hurricane Evacuations and just sitting around talking. George and his beautiful wife Voula raised 2 great children and George was so proud of his kids and grandchildren. We are better people for having known him. He will be missed by many including us.
Love, Sue & Jerry Rovner

George, always had a smile on his face. I had the opportunity to become friends with George about 40 years ago and be able to enjoy a few golf trips with him and be in his presence on numerous occasions. He could always make you laugh...May God Continue to Keep Him In the Palm of His Hand and Bless Voula and ALL the Family...
