Uncle George, I still miss you and always will. In our many conversations, you taught me how to live life forward. To pay attention to things that matter as family and education, and not to be distracted by influences outside of my control. You taught me to be a leader of myself, and through this wisdom I've been able to grow in both career and family. I love you and always will.
Uncle George, you will have a warm spot in my heart for ever. I remember in elementary school how the Kalaf boys looked up to you and Abe Kalaf as the uncles we so much wanted to model ourselves after. So many stories about your adventures, BS& K mining, the travels you experienced and especially the freedoms you enjoyed. However, you always had a warm spot for us in your heart.
Christmas Eve at the Kalaf home on Dayton was something I looked forward to every year. I remember as a kid, the Christmas tree with the bubble lights and the statue of liberty with the famous clock in her tummy that sat on the fireplace mantle. I miss those days with all the Kalaf's around and the time we all enjoyed together. My father always talked about you at the dinner table. We loved everything my dad said about you.
You were a man with your own ways and always were never afraid to express your opinions no matter what. Sometimes words were shall we say pointed, but you had a heart of gold. I will never forget the days I worked with you at Newberry Energy with my father. I always loved seeing you around when I was a shop boy. You and my father taught me the values of working hard to achieve your dreams. Thank you for letting me be a part of your life. God Bless, you will be missed by us all.
Bill Kalaf Jr.
I will miss you dearly uncle George. You always knew how to make me laugh. I love you. May you rest in peace.
