Dear Nan and Family,

I had the pleasure of knowing George starting when he was a Sergeant working the late shift at District 6 and I was a Sergeant working the late shift at Greenfield PD.
We crossed paths many times during our careers and he was always the ultimate professional police officer and I am deeply sorry to hear of his passing.

Dear Nan - Sad to read about George's passing. I'd see him nightly when he would come into the Old Traffic Bureau (I worked Early Shift there) to use our xerox machine for his 700 line-ups. He was always pleasant to me. A nice man and a good officer and supervisor. Sending you loving thoughts. You are in my prayers.
