Happy birthday!!!!
November 19, 2013
My cousin, George, was a rock in our family. He was much loved and is now very greatly missed. He was there in sad times and happy times. I always counted on George as I would a brother. We miss you, George. Mom misses your Sunday call with your greeting in French: "Tante Aimee, comment ca va? "

I remember George. He was one of the big brothers in our neighborhood. God Bless you George.

"An honorable coach. An honorable man."

Coach Janan truly was a gentle giant and I have always respected him as one of the kindest, most genuine people I've ever known. I first met George and his family when I was very young. The Janans lived in the same neighborhood as my family and Kelly and I were in the same Kindergarten class together, so I can remember George's jovial, caring presence for just about as far back as I can recall. During high school he was my varsity offensive line coach at Spruce Creek and was by far the best role model for our team. He consistently emphasized that hard work, good sportsmanship, and positive attitude were more important than any amount of points on the board, and he lived his words through acts of kindness and integrity. During the 98 season I suffered an injury during practice and was hospitalized for several days. George was the only coach to visit me while I was at Halifax and one of the few faculty members that always asked how I was doing after I graduated. If we lost a football game he was the only coach who was consistently positive, always offering words of encouragement and thanking us for "playing our hearts out". He holds a very special place in my heart and memory, and I am very thankful to have known such a caring, honest man whose love for the Lord and passion for education molded the lives of so many for generations to come. Thanks, coach. You are truly missed.

I not only had the privilege of calling him coach, friend and mentor but most importantly family. Thank you for praying for us every holiday we got together with the family, your blessings were as genuine as they get. I will always love our talks about football, life and family. You have inspired so many people in the classroom, on the field and through your work with god. I can only hope to be an inspiration like you. Love ya and miss ya.

George attended the same church as I. We would chat football often, but you could always tell his passion was Christ Jesus our LORD. He'll always remain a Christian example to me. Thanks George for your encouragement. I was truly blessed by your Christian devotion.

Sorry to see that George has passed. It was good to see him at the Seabreeze '71 reunions. He was one nice guy.

I'm sorry.....I meant to say baby "sitter", not sister.

Ray and Family, George will surely be missed, but for what he has achieved he will be remembered for an eternity. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

George was a wonderful man and I was so happy that he was a brother in Christ. I was George's baby sister when he was younger, along with his siblings. I am so so sorry that he has left us, but I am delighted in knowing that he is with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen to you, George!
