I met George in Japan in 1969, we were competing in the hammerthrow for our respective countries at the first Pacific Conference Games.
I have only just learned with great sadness of George's passing. George offered me advice on training during our time together which stood me in good stead for my career as a thrower. What a great guy. I followed his sporting achievements as best I could from afar. My belated sympathies to family and friends.

George and I were roommates in 1966 while at Long Beach State. He taught me how to throw the hammer in 1964 and introduced me to power lifting. He was intense about training, as well as creative. I remember George having me do slow controlled spins on the cinder track to develop correct body position. I remember going to Peanuts Laury's house for a power lifting session. With George's sense of humor, it wasn't hard to make him laugh. I remember waking up to loud snoring. George stood their with a tape recorder, playing back my snoring that I denied I did. There are a million stories about George, but what I will always remember is that he was a good friend, a dedicated athlete, and a caring individual, both on and off the athletic field.

I trained with George while I competed back in the late 60's. I remember a funny episode when George took me to an "all you can eat" place..I think they were very happy to se us leave!! Also, George had me throw the 56# weight. I said you "gotta" be kidding me but wound up throwing over 40'. He was a great athlete & will be surely missed.

George was my weightlifting coach at Cerritos high. I learned more in his class about tolerance, respect, integrity, honesty then in any other class all four years. He will be missed. Rest in peace Mr. Frenn.

what the ??? I just searched out my old friend to find he is gone. that sucks. He was my physics classmate in Hayward California and encouraged me to apply at CSU Long Beach. He helped me write a resume and was a personal reference. He went out of his way to be helpful. He was a dedicated science teacher and bought cases (literally) of equipment and supplies for lab experiements, stored in his hallways, patio, wherever, because the district wouldn't or couldn't do it themselves. I never knew a Lebanese person until I met you. I will truly miss you brutha.

I knew George at LB State from '65 to '68..we had many rap sessions about track/hammer throwing though I did neither...I've wondered about George for years and just happened upon his Obituary today...a great guy and a truly dedicated and devoted athlete...rest in peace

George's passing caught me by surprise, you want to believe a man like that is indestructible. I met George in the early 1980's and for the next 5-6 years was invited to train with them (George Frenn, Roger Estep, Mike Willis and Elliot Wainer). I moved away and lost touch, but always think about those times and what they all gave to me. To this day I still compete and I have those folks to thank for that. It was truly one of those life experiences you never forget. I know George is up there training with Roger, just like old times. Someday we will all train together again. Rudy
