In this era of texts and tweets, George highly valued real and lively interaction with people. I feel so blessed to have been one of those who had an opportunity to know this true gentleman and inquisitive soul. George will always be missed, and always remembered -- a wonderful legacy.

My deepest condolences to the family on your loss. It sounds like George had a very fulfilling life. May cherished memories and the uplifting promises found in God's word carry you through your grief and bring you immeasurable comfort, strength and peace. (1 Thessalonians 3:16)

So sorry to read of George's passing. Suzanne and you, Lohren have my most sincere sympathies. George always had a smile on his face especially when walking the dogs...and of course, the cat!
A wonderful Quarry neighbor and friend who will be dearly missed. Marylou Hill, Laguna and Niklaus, the cavaliers
