I had Mr. Rogers as a 6th grade teacher at Orville Wright Elementary in 2002. He was my favorite teacher. Living in airport, I came from a rougher family background, so his belief in me was very influential in my journey. I won a district award that year for initiative because of his recommendation. I still have the plaque. I participated in his lunch sports and even had my football team win, won student of the month, had poetry published in a district volume, and even landed in the newspaper with the superintendent. It was a life changing year for me, and Mr. Rogers was the reason for it. During my 6th grade year, I developed dreams of college and ambition for working hard in school and at life. Right after I completed the 6th grade, my family abruptly moved to Arizona and I never said goodbye and thanked him. He went too soon.

Now, I'm a teacher myself. I teach high school English, and I credit his investment into my life as a key component to why I am where I am today. I hope one day in heaven I can thank him for changing my life for the better. I'll never forget you, Mr. Rogers. You changed my life. Thank you.

I had the pleasure of having Mr. Rogers for a teacher on two occasions. The first time was in fourth grade back in 1970 when he was teaching in Delhi. I was surprised to have a male teacher, but he turned out to be one of the best teachers I ever had. I had no idea at the time that he was only 22 years old. He handled the classroom like an experienced teacher. I later had him as a math teacher in the eighth grade.

I knew George when he was young and dateing my best friend Terria. They lived next door to me after they got married for a short while. George would play his music loud and my first husband and I would pretend that it was to loud for us and bang on the walls. We all enjoyed the music and dinners together. They were poor mans dinners back then. Terria and I each had boys six months apart and they played together. I miss both Terria and George so much that it hurts! THANKS GUYS FOR THE MEMORIES!I am blessed by knowing you both. I just could't talk about George with out talking about Terria.

Wanted to express my sympaties to David and all of the Family. I met George through Terria, my best friend. All my memories are of a very special person who evolved into a wonderfun, wonderful man and a great example of what to become. I send thoughts of healing and lightness on this new journey to all that loved him. I know he will be missed. Take care one and all.

We just found out last night of George's passing. Though it was expected, we are very sorry to hear of his passing and our condolences go out to his family.
George was a very funny, witty, lively man! You could talk with this man for hours, and never get bored.

Those who's lives he touched, be it as a friend or a teacher were truly blessed.

He will be greatly missed.

We need more "George's" in this world!

Rest in peace George, and we will see you on the other side.

I didn't know George as a teacher, a musician or a poet. I knew him as a grandparent and like everything else he apparantly did, he did it spectacularly. He worried he wouldn't be remembered and I ask how he could be forgotten. All you had to do was look at the faces of his grandchildren when Grandpa George was mentioned. The rest of us won't let them forget. He will live on in their musical talent, their love of reading, and of course, baseball, watching, playing, cheering.
George was many things to many people but as a co-grandparent he was outstanding.

I first got to know George when I was a 10 year old student at Orville Wright. Lucky for me I became reaquainted with him when I started teaching at my alma mater some 19 years later. I am now 40 years old and having known George my life is truly blessed. Winnie the Pooh said it best when his friend Christopher Robin was heading off to school..."I'll never not remember you."

It has been my privilege to get to know George as a colleague and friend these past 8 years. I enjoyed working with him in the teachers' writing group and my wife and I enjoyed going to see his band play on several occasions. I'll sorely miss his sense of humor. George was truly an all around talented, caring, and likable guy.

I had the pleasure to work with George in the Orville Wright Chorus. He was the director, I the accompianist. He couldn't read music but his natural talent and ear for a good tune helped him choose music the students loved to sing. I loved his take on things at school. My favorite was going with the students to the MADD night at the church. We would sing "I Will Always Love You! I miss him.
