Upon his discharge he completed college at the University of Nebraska where he studied engineering and became a lifelong Cornhusker fan. A frequent mantra from George was "Go Big Red!" In 1954 George began his career with a position at the California Institute of Technology's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena. He was one of many scientists and engineers working in the early space program. He was assigned Capsule Systems Sterilization Engineer for the Voyager spacecraft, and later developed the NASA planetary quarantine handbook that was used in the Viking launch. He concluded his career in 1990 as the Project Manager for the Galileo launch to Jupiter. George enjoyed Cornhusker football, camping, skiing, boating and piloting his Beechcraft Musketeer. He traveled the world with Aileene, and enjoyed his family and friends. Later in life he took up racquetball, and he always enjoyed a rousing game of cribbage. He will be missed by all that knew him. His journey ended peacefully having had a very full life. In memory of George any contributions to Community Hospice would be appreciated. www.cvobituaries.com
