George and i shared many happy memories in the air force, at the U of F, at the US coast and geodetic survey and especially traveling together across this great country. He was always energetic and ready to go and try new things. We rv d we scuba dived we explored caves we camped . George always came up with new ideas to test our abilities. He was a dear friend and will be missed in this world. I look forward to seeing him in the next life and what he has set up for us.

My fondest memories of George are from the adventures we shared on Cap Cod while stationed at Otis Air Force base. George was always full of enthusiasm for everything we did like diving 100 feet to salvage a boat that had sunk in a pond to building our own boat from 2 tip tanks from an aircraft . I will also miss his wild imagination and sense of humor when we Emailed back and forth. Rest in peace my friend.
