Uncle George used to wake me up early to go out with Uncle James to fix fence. I was the post hole digger, and always got poison ivy. He would always have two shirts and a cup of coffee. It was freezing and it did not seem to bother him. His hands were huge, like his heart.
Sitting at Grand Mothers, he would grab my neck muscle and nearly make me cry. His hands were so strong it was crazy.
When I was younger, he would pick me up by my ears. Funny how he would always wait till I grabbed his arms before he started to pick up.
When I was very little, he was working on a job with Grand Pa and gave me a 2x4 to sand. I rounded it off and handed it back to him. He smiled and did not let me mess any more of the hand cut wood up. They did not have electric power tools back then.
Every thanksgiving he would have a tree or two cut down. We would haul it to Grand Mothers, then I would spend the time splitting wood. I really loved it. Funny how a splitting maul showed up after I went into the navy.
I was able to help him roof the front side of Grand Mother's house
George had a warm smile and was always kind to me. He took care of everyone, worked hard, and tried to do the right thing. It is difficult to think of him as being gone. I loved him and will miss him. I hurt for Aunt Janice, Mary, Pam and Josh. He was a good man. He left his mark in all the buildings he built and through all his wonderful children, grand children, and the things he taught them all.

I met George through Josh and Jolene, Jolene is my daughter. George was one of the strongest men that I have ever met, even though he scared me a few times with some of his jokes lol. George I Thank You from the bottom of my heart for the things you did for our combined family. I always loved coming to family gatherings at the Kinney home, and watching the way you interacted with your family and the love that you had for them all. You are no longer suffering with the evil cancer. RIP my friend, Sending My Love and Prayers to the Family. George please give my momma a big hug for me.
