Not sure what to say?

Uncle George was a hardworking man devoted to friends and family. He was a kind and gentle soul with an infectious personality. His wit, wisdom and compassion were incomparable. May he rest in peace.

I am sad to hear of George' death. I was privileged to have been a long time colleague of George In District 2 of the CPS. I want his family and friends to know how highly respected he was in the District. George was the go-to-guy when you wanted something done, or if you needed correct information to get something accomplished. I'll miss his oneliners and cartoons. His passing is a loss to many. Bill Haran, former principal of Brennemann School,,District 2

I met George almost 50 years ago when our two oldest boys were in Webelos together. He has always been devoted to his family, and was one of the most responsible and disciplined people I've ever known.
George has been my friend ever since; he has been my best friend.
I will miss him, but he left me 50 years worth of wonderful memories.

Dear Family of George, My deepest sympathy on his passing. It is so sad to say good bye to your Dad and Grandfather. I knew him and your Mom beginning back when Jack and I, along with Bob and Jan and later Bob and Eve would get together for cards, pizza at Tonelli’s and coffee and. He was always lovingly talking about his children. He was part of wonderful memories. Again, my deepest sympathy, may he Rest In Peace.

Dearest Nicole & Tracy: I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. He was a great man!
In had the pleasure of meeting George when I went to visit Kevin, Tracy & Nicole years ago. I was impressed with the way he interacted with Nicole. You could tell he loved interacting with her. He must have been an amazing educator. George was on one of his annual visits. He stayed in Safford. I lived outside of Willcox. My old truck was acting up so we both were heading home at the same time so he...

Words will not express the big void I will feel in the days to come. I am so grateful for the last several weeks to be by your side and help you through. You have filled so many roles for me and the girls that I could never thank you enough for. You have helped shape all of us. We will miss you through all of our big moments but know you will be beside us and live on within us. You will be missed so much more than you could ever know. May you rest in peace eternally. Love you Dad!

Godspeed Uncle George!

I miss my big brother already - and always will. He was so kind, generous and an all-around good guy. Also the life of the party with his wonderful sense of humor. He may be gone but will never be forgotten. I love you George.

I have so many loving, and funny, memories of my dear bother George. He could find humor in almost every situation, and his ability to remember and tell jokes was phenomenal. As a big brother, I knew that he always had my back. He was an inspiration to me in so many ways. I and your family and friends will miss him dearly. May he rest in peace.
