George has been a machinist for the past 22 years for Keolis Commuter Service in Boston where he made many close friends. A special thank you from George's family to Paul and Keith for of their support, and comfort during this difficult time.

In addition, George loved his annual seafood-palooza with his family. George was a caring friend to many, and has always attempted to pay it forward.
