George was a fine Christian man. He worked endlessly behind the scenes at the church. He helped The Banner Bunch with their projects in countless ways. I enjoyed many bike rides with George, Bob Chaplin, and Clark Hyland. Our stops for milk shakes were always a fun time. George loved the choir and the music program. May George enjoy his new home in heaven with his Savior, Jesus, and George's beloved wife,Anita. Well done thou good and faithful servant!!
