I worked with George at DDA in Sunnyvale and then saw him in Raleigh. He always had a smile and was great with a joke. My condolences to his family.

We are very sorry to hear of George's death. He was a close friend and co-worker at Data Design from 1976 (when I joined) on. We lost touch over the years, but I'll also remember his warmth and tremendous sense of humor (and a handful of his enormous arsenal of jokes and fascinating stories). Farewell, friend, and our fond best wishes to his family.

George would have loved reading about your memories of him. I know that my sons and I appreciate you sharing this with us. Some of it I knew but I had never seen the pictures before. Thank you for sharing this part of George's life with us.

George will be greatly missed.

George had been a great friend since 1967, a pilot I always trusted. He had distinguished service in the Marine Corps and in Vietnam.

He will be greatly missed and always remembered.
