To the Family of George Latimer,
My sincere sympathy,
I was so sorry to hear that George had passed. I was a frequent visitor to the woods of Peach Mt. over the last few summers, and always preceded my visits with a call to George to check if was OK to park up at the observatory. He was always gracious and helpful with comments (mosquitos are bad today- bring plenty of bug spray). Our last phone contact was last June when he expressed looking forward to retirement. I wished him well, and still do.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I never met your father but having such a wonderful son as yourself, I can only believe that he was wonderful as well.... I hope that the memories you have of your father bring you much comfort in the days ahead.
Thinking of you,
Tracy (School of Social Work)

George was one of a kind and will be sadly missed. I have wonderful memories of George and the times we (George, my sisters family and myself) spent out at Peach Mountain. We hiked, went sledding learned about the dish and what George did. I even spent a day with George looking for wild turkeys. The only turkeys out there were George and I. George was a wonderful friend to all that new him. I'll miss you George! My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family.

Tim and the Latimer Family, my thoughts and prayers are with you
I will always remember George Latimer as one of the most caring and giving persons I have ever known. He was a big part of my life growing up and I will never forget the times we spent together. He was a positive influence on my life in so many ways. My thoughts and prayers to the entire family.
My husband Barry and I worked with George for many years up at the mountain. He would be there all hours of the day and night. He was a very interesting man and what a character too! We moved to Stockbridge and became neighbors to his lovely mother Bea. Miss her everyday but will remember fondly the both of them. So sorry for your loss...

Mary,you are in our thoughts and prayers as well as the rest of George's family. Obviously, I didn't know him except through the boys. They always thought a lot of him and enjoyed visits to Peach Mountain. I just wanted you to know how special he was to them, especially when they were little and saw both of you more often. God Bless
We love you and will miss you Great Uncle George. Keeping Mary, Scott, Tim, their families, and my Grandma Wilma in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Love, Amanda McAlister
I work with Scott and hope the Lord graces you all with strength and peace during this difficult time. I'm very sorry for this untimely loss.
Mary and Sons of George,
I never met any of you, but I want to say how sorry to hear that your husand and father has passed. I knew him in high school, my husband and I double dated with him and his friend,and my husband worked with him for a short time. He was a fun guy to be with and I am sure that he will be missed greatly in your lives. Just remember that memories can not be taken away.
George (Coach). Many of us in life are blessed to have mentors and special people come into our lives at the right time for the right purpose. George was a mentor, a special person, and a father figure to me. George was a good Man and he will always be in my memory. My heartfelt condolences to Mary, Scott, Tim, and the whole family.
Saddened by the loss of Uncle George today - I remember him when we were kids he would always pick us up and swing us around to fits of laughter at Grandpa and Grandma's in Plainfield. I am pretty sure he helped me get my job here at the University 25 years ago when I desperately needed one. I also spent some time at the Site where he would try to get me to understand what he actually did up there. Sad loss for our family. He was a good role model for his two sons, that he loved dearly. Mary you two made a great couple.
Thank you Mr. Latimer for taking the time out of your life to teach us young men to compete and win. Thanks to you we learned how to win and not back down. And thank you so much for treating me like one your own sons.
I will always be thankful for your help and encouragement, and most of all for exposing me to all the things in life that I otherwise wouldn't have had a chance to experience.
