In 1951 he enlisted in the Naval Air Reserves and in 1955 he switched from blue to green and joined the Army, serving active duty as a Military Intelligence Specialist. 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.
George was a member of Congressional Country Club, Bethesda, Maryland, the Metropolitan Club, Washington, DC, Caves Valley Country Club, Baltimore, Maryland, Naples National Country Club and Colliers Reserve Country Club in Naples Florida. He was also a member of All Saint's Episcopalian Church in Chevy Chase Maryland and Naples United Church of Christ in Naples Florida.
