Not sure what to say?

I'm quite saddened to find out that George is gone. My years working with him at Bay & Delta Yachstman are filled with wonderful memories. He was funny, and kind and had the most wonderful contageous laugh! I will miss you, "uncle George".

Sheila, Marilyn, Bill, & Jenny,
George was a wonderful husband and father who set an example for those who knew him. I am so glad he lived to know his grandchildren and for them to remember him. He set a high standard for always being cheerful and humorous, even through rough times. Thank you, George, for all those good memories.
