George was always a kind, fair, gentil, and loving man... I've known him and his Sons for better then 30 years and feel my life is enriched and better having been touched by his. A God loving/fearing man George lived his life to the Pride of Jesus Christ everyday, and spread that love to all around him... though I am saddened both for my own loss, as well as the emptiness this brings his family... I rejoice in knowing he now sits at the right hand of God, and will forever watch over his flock of kin and love ones.. saving seats for use to join him in God's kingdom when our journeys here are done... George you will be Greatly missed by all of us left behind, but each and everyone of us celebrate your coming home to Christ!!! All my love Pops, GODSPEED! !!
