George cherished his six sisters-in- law.. the late Mary Laganas, Theda Triantafel and her husband George of Andover; the late Iris Sarantos and her husband, Charles of Andover; Olga and Toula Laganas, both of Lowell and Patricia Dukakis of South Natick and her late husband Arthur Dukakis. He treasured the friendship of his nephew Constantine Sarantos and his wife, Elizabeth; his niece, Anastasia Taksin and her husband, Gengiz; grandniece Alyssa and grand nephew Christopher. Born in New York, George lived his early years in Wilmington, North Carolina. He graduated from North Carolina State University earning a degree in Civil Engineering.

During his career, he was involved with many professional organizations. Dear to his heart was the Construction Specification Institute where he served as Chapter President in 1981.
