Once honorably discharged George made his most successful career move and joined the firm of Francis I Dupont, thus beginning his illustrious carrier as a financial advisor and ultimately a Branch Manager. Moving quickly up the ranks, George worked for Drexel Burnham Lambert, Smith Barney, and Morgan Stanley. Still managing an active book until his final day, George earned a reputation and following in the Washington, DC financial world that is remembered by many. He was a devoted husband and father who worked hard to provide for his family and lived by example.
