My mother, Anna Lavelle, lived right next door to George. Last year my mom fell and broke her hip and he called 911. My mom would often send him food and he would give my mom books. My mom always asks about him because she now lives with my sister in Rockland County since she can no longer live alone. He was a wonderful neighbor and an awesome person. Rest in Peace, Mr. Babak

I remember the many trips to La Guardia airport with my dad seeing Uncle George off on another venture to Indiana and then seeing him on his return trip back home. His nickname for me was "Ace".

With fond memories,
his nephew Michael G. Babak
