I spent 14 years in the US Navy Submarine Force. George was my LPO (Leading Petty Officer) on my first submarine, 1990-1992, in the Navigation Electronics Division on the USS Tecumseh. He was a kind leader who set the standard for those who would follow him. He will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear about George passing. George was truly an inspiration to everyone. He always saw the possibility in everything, provided leadership, mentorship, friendship, and brotherly love. His direction lit the path for some of the Navy's strongest leaders and best Chief's. He never asked for anything in return as he freely gave. His family values were threaded in every story he told. The World has lost a Great Man; his legacy will live on.
