He earned his Bachelors degree from University of California - Irvine and upon completion of his studies at UC - Hastings was admitted to the California State Bar in January 1971. His distinguished career in constitutional law earned him national recognition, participating in cases from coast to coast. He also engaged in a number of business endeavors during his professional career.

George was an active member of First Congregational Church - Santa Cruz and volunteered time to COPA and the youth at the Santa Cruz Juvenile Hall.

Upon his retirement in 2007, he spent most of his time enjoying friends and playing golf. He is survived by his wife, Caryl; daughter Demian of Capitola; son Derek of Burbank and Derek's wife Annie and their children Summer and Halen; sister Roxanna Lightfoot and niece Cherisse of Las Vegas; and cousin Brian Barents of Kansas City.
