George was larger than life. San Pedro took a big loss. Looking forward to seeing him young and healthy in the resurrection. Ann took good care of George...I'm so glad I got to spend quality time with them when they had me over for dinner. I will forever cherish the memories.

We always enjoyed being around George,, whenever he and Anna would come to support the humble beginnings of our italian language meetings he would bring his sense of humor and dedicated support. His connection with those in the italian community were much appreciated by us as we made every effort to share good news with those in theIr own language. We are glad to have worked alongside such a faithful, hardworking and supportive friend, and brother. May you find comfort Anna and family in our wonderful hope.

By Far my Favorite Uncle, his whit, humor, love of gardening and Good Food, along with a real love for Family & Life itself. George made his carreer of Fishing by "Seeing the Unseen" he could spot fish better than most and directed the boat to the Prize! By keeping my eyes on the things unseen I too can get there! I look forward to seeing George soon under much better conditions. ;-) Johnny
