Today I’ve been remembering one of my very best friends growing up. George man, there was a stretch there when I would have considered you my best friend. From age 15 – 24 were some big years, a lot of growing happened for us during that time and we had a lot of fun. It never made any sense to me that our friendship didn’t endure to this day, it should have, and I regret that we didn’t try harder to be there for one another for longer. Why do we waste time with stubborn insecure feelings and foolish pride? As we live our lives we try to carry the least amount of regrets as possible, and sadly, I will have some to bear with respect to my relationship with George, but I will never forget the friendship we shared, I will never forget the fun we’d had, the excitement, warm moments, George’s smile and the sound of his laughter, the love for one another we’d once shared. I won’t forget his mom and dad and sister, how much I could see how they loved him, and the kindness his mom showed me when I was an insecure kid with a chip on his shoulder who didn’t feel much sense of family aside from the deep love I felt for my own mother. Back then, my friends were my family as much as anyone, and George was my brother. I feel sorry now, I wish we had more time. Life lessons are being learned. A few hours ago I sang a couple of songs in dedication to you at a local open mic, I hope you heard it. We both had our moments but at your best, you were truly a great friend Georgie, I will always respect you for that and remember you that way. May you find peace and good times in the afterlife, hope to see you and be brothers again someday. Your friend, Darrel

George was one of my closest friends growing up together. We were “skaters”. He was Steve Cabello and I was Lance Mountain. We spent so much time together that it seemed as if we actually lived together. So many laughs. He had a a profound influence on my life. Hot summer days skating an empty Encina High School or behind Straw Hat Pizza on Fulton Ave.
I will never forget him and he will always hold a place in my heart. My love to his family. Maryann, Paula, Michelle... Rest In Peace George. You were like a brother to me. I love you.

George was so fun and such a great guy. When He went to Mexico with us, He made every adventure come alive with excitement. He lived a life full of joy and fun.
George had a big heart and I think He and Uncle Denny are having fun in Heaven.
No one should have to bury their Child. I grieve and cry with you for this terrible lose.
All our love and prayers,
Jeanne StClair and Rick May
