I was out of town and just learned of George's death. He was a good man who lived a very full life. I first met George when I was one of the original developers of the master-planned community of Eastlake. He would attend community meetings and express his opinions about protecting the quality of life in our community. He was always well-prepared on the issues at hand, and he was articulate.

When I left Eastlake and opened my own company on Bonita Road, George would often stop by my office unannounced, and we'd chew the fat over things in which he was interested. When he took up the cause of battling the proposed toll road (SR-125), George asked me to help him. The development of 125 would benefit my commercial projects and land I owned in Eastlake. But having grown up in Bonita, I agreed with George's efforts to change the then-proposed 125 route.

My office became George's (the Commander's) “war room” for the battle against 125. George and I would discuss the technical aspects of various proposed routes. My secretary would then type George's letters to elected officials and community members, and I'd pay for envelopes and postage. During this battle against 125, George and I became good friends. He told great stories, and at times was a scalawag with a twinkle in his eye. One year, he came to my company's Christmas party with an attractive woman on each arm. He explained to me that he couldn't decide which of his “girlfriends” he liked best.....so he brought them both. That was George!

Our family will miss you George. You have always been very supportive of all our children during their scouting life. Jayvin enjoyed taping the interview with you and then completing the write-up about a special veteran. We will also miss driving you to Bonita Golf Restaurant and Red Lobster. George you have been an outstanding role model and inspiration to all around our neighborhood. We will miss you.
