Chief I have just learned that St. Michael has swept you away to be with our lord and savior. You fought the good fight my dear old mentor. Your friendship and guidance that you have taught me through the years will never be forgotten. You had a part in making me the man I am today. Chief Potter is 10-7 the remainder of the shift.

Connie - I just learned of George's death as I stopped in Perry on my way back to Marietta. George helped me focus on safe teen driving...on a program I run called SafeTeen Georgia (a program of the Safe America Foundation which Inrun from Marietta). I had not talked to George for several years... But I always admired him. And, were close when he was head of the GACP. He was a fine man... And one of those rare public safety officials who I not only respected but admired for his faith in God... and his commitment to family and friends. I will always be thankful I knew George. And proud to call him a friend.

Connie,
we spoke of the lost of George already but I just wanted to memorialize my thoughts here one last time. As I mentioned earlier, George and I met in the early seventies as police officers in the Columbus, PD. George and I renewed our friendship about three years ago. We would text each other about world events. What impressed me most about George was his intellectual abilities and his capacity to get along and on with most everyone that he met. If you challenged him from an intellectual perspective, it is likely that you would lose. I have to say that I lost many battles with him on this front. As I reflect on our friendship and the communications that we had recently, I'm reminded that it was a tender and touching one. Last year we text each other doing the Auburn/Alabama game. Facing Florida next George text, " well Judd, I don't believe auburn can beat Florida and I can't beat this cancer." His last text to me was at 3:05 Am on the 18th of August. I sent him a response as soon as I got up and recognized that he had called. I wish to God that I had answered the text then. He was positive to the very end and I'm a much better person from having known him, and am so glad that I got a chance to travel a few miles down the road with him. He was a friend of mine.
With deepest Respect

So sorry for your loss Connie and Erica. George was such a great mentor and teacher. I will never forget what he did for me when I worked under him at the Columbus Police Department in the Office of Professional Standards. He went over and beyond in helping me get the position I have held now for 21 years. He touched so many lives, and he will be greatly missed.

George is the reason I went to Little Rock for myeloma treatments. At the time of diagnosis , my world was upside down and George pulled me up and gave much hope for the coming battles. I talked with him often during the brutal, grueling 4 years of my treatments. He was always a beacon of hope and encouragement at the end of the path. I happened to finally meet him in Little Rock as we were both having check ups. We had great fellowship for a few minutes . Recently spoke with him 2 months ago and he told me he was going to let life take its course and spend time with his family. I never got to play golf with George but had promised him a round on me. So I anticipate playing you someday George!
Prayers and thoughts to all of you from our family

A professional, a gentleman, he strove in all ways with great energy and passion. He was a colleague at the Columbus PD and, more importantly, a friend.
