Wes and I were so sad to hear of the passing of our friend George Menz. We extend our deepest sympathy to all of his family and will keep them in our prayers. George was a much loved member of our Harrah community family. He had a lively sense of humor and always cared about you as a person not just a customer. We wish his sweet soul gentle rest.

Prayers to all George's family. George was my pharmacist for years. He would always let me know if a new medicine would interfere with the others I was using. Such a kind and truly caring man. He.will be missed by the whole community. God bless.

When I first moved into the Little Ace community, I chose Dr. Menz as family doctor and Allcare Pharmacy for my medications.
Meeting George has been a blessing to our family, I never had any doubts about prescription meds as he would be fast to notify me of something that would counteract with something else I was taking.
It was obvious that George was a people person and that he cared for everyone he met.
Although George is in Heaven pain free and singing with the angels, he will be greatly missed here on earth.
Prayers for the families as they go thru this trial.

I was very sorry to hear of the passing of George. He was such a big part of our little community and well-liked by everyone. He was always very helpful to customers. My condolences to his wife and children and Grandchildren - and to all of his long-time customers.

George was my friend for more than 30 years. Yes, he was our family pharmacist but that was secondary to our encounters through the years. When I first met George, I was teaching Senior English at McLoud High. When it was time to hire a “new girl” at the pharmacy, he would always ask for my recommendation if an applicant was from McLoud. When I went to work at the Capitol, George was our go-to expert on pharmacy legislation. If he didn’t know the answer to a question, he would find it and call me back. But most importantly, when I was diagnosed with renal cancer seven years ago, George became the most compassionate of friends...and a giver of wise counsel. We have shared our struggles these past few years; George’s toughness and positive outlook have been an inspiration. My condolences to the Menz Family, who were the light and delight of his life.
