George will be greatly missed and never forgotten. He was my first "boss" at CEI and taught me many business skills that I still use today.

My sympathy and prayers go out to George's family. I am truly sorry for your loss. Although I knew George briefly, I enjoyed getting to know him and our many conversations. His display of motivation, determination and hard work during his rehab therapy sessions will not be forgotten. He was a uniqe man. May he have Eternal Peace with God.

I had the privilege of working with George at CEI and again at FirstEnergy in Akron. What a great guy, always looking our for others. The adopt a family program was even started at CEI thanks to George. He will be missed by many. Kathy Fedrowisch

It was an honor and a privilege to attend U of D with George. We both had a passion for sports and competition and were unlikely roommates, but George was a generous man, who loved sports and loved Cleveland

George will always be the "Mr. Andler" that wouldn't let a clueless freshman flunk algebra. He made an indelible impression, esp. with that yellow/black plaid sport jacket which earned him the nickname "Bumblebee". Thanks for having faith in and tutoring a hapless innumerate in 1975. Well done, good and faithful servant.Share your Master's joy.

My prayers and condolences go out to the family and friends of George. He will be missed by many. I had so much fun working with him on the "adopt a family" program. He had many soft spots in that macho image. He really cared about many! God bless you George.
