I didn't know George, but he sounds like he was a character! (As all true Nock's are.) I am married to a cousin of his; my husband is John H. Nock (grandson of Harry Nock who was a 1st cousin once removed to George). If any family members wish to get in contact with this line, please contact me.

It was a classic law school setting: terraced curved rows with seating for a hundred and fifty “first years,” and all facing down toward a centered pulpit where the Prof would conduct his socratic lecture. All eyes watched pensively as the caricature entered the room: long disheveled gray hair, tattered and wrinkled un-matching suit jacket and slacks, poorly knotted tie, sneakers, and carrying a well read casebook with dozens of yellow stickies hanging out in disarray. He did not really limp, but kind of shuffled his way to the podium, due probably to the overweight burden on his feet. The room silenced as he set down his book and looked at the clock.
He then turned to the class and with an oratorical expression exclaimed, “It is 10am, and this is room #301. It must be Property.” He paused, and then said, “Of course, in the Northwest, the only place you can truly have proper tea is between 2 and 4pm at the Empress Hotel in Victoria.”

There were only scattered chuckles, but for me, it was vintage Nock, a reminder of why I loved this friend so much. I shall miss him greatly.

Bucky(as he was known to his family)
because he was named after our grandfather(George Roy Nock II, he was III.) he and I were raised together in Cascade, Idaho as small children and to about the age of 10 when he moved. I was named after his mother(Winona)we started e-mailing about 5 years ago and we both enjoyed it so much, I will miss him very very much.

Hello George. I hear you chiding: "You can never read too many newspapers!" Right, again! For want of reading a newspaper, I missed your last hours on earth and I missed your memorial. I didn't have the chance to say that your life was ending much too soon for us - that you needed stay at your job of brightening all these lives around you. I'm so happy that the people you love best were with you.

Last night, Bart came to me in a dream. He said you crossed the bridge with a light and hopeful step. Then he laughed and showed me your face, and I, too, knew your peace. Zyanya. Marnie

George and I attended Tam High together. I wish I had known him better at that time. We re-met thru an e-mail group and it was his wit and puns that made us giggle and groan. We were so looking forward to meeting and getting to know him again at our upcoming 50th reunion. He will indeed leave a large vacant spot. Our sympathy to those who were close to him.

I was so much looking forward to meeting George for the first time in Calif. I never knew him apart from his email comments to high school classmates; it was very clear from those comments that he would be a unique and amusing person to know. Such a loss.

All too briefly, I had the chance to re-connect with George this year. We hadn't met since high school 50 years ago. Merry wanted to know what he was like back then and my main memory was of joking around with him at the back of class. He was always far more entertaining than the teacher. I admit to being surprised he became a professor himself but can see that he brought his humor with him. As one of his students said, " He brought color to what could have been a colorless experience." A one-of-a-kind person and warm-hearted friend.

I'm writing this in tribute to a man who's heart was only exceeded by his compassion and passions. It has been said by many that a person survives as long as they are remembered. George has become part of so many, enhanced so many lives, brought joy to so many that he is not just among us, he's part of us. Our best judgment has been fine tuned by his challenge to think and reason. Blessings and may your spirit sparkle during this new adventure.
