So sorry to hear of George´s passing. I worked with him many years ago at Agway CF Industries. He was a joy to be around, never a dull moment especially on the golf course. He will surely be missed. God bless you Sue and family during this difficult time.

Words can't express the sorrow we have for Suzy, Mike, Debbie and the rest of the family. George was "a one of a kind" person. He touched so many lives in so many ways. I have many memories of working with George and playing golf with him and many friends some still around, others that have also passed. He'll be dearly missed by all who knew and associated with him. Deepest sympathy to the entire family! Ed & Barbara Anderson

Our Dearest Susie, We bear our deepest sorrow with you during this loss of our dear friend George. George and I met in 1961, in the US Air Force. Over the years we became best friends and sometimes met to play golf together. My greatest memory was when George and we met in South Carolina by Divine Providence. It was at that time that George came to the knowledge that Jesus had chosen him to be saved from the beginning of time. We saw the transformation immediately in his countenance and the great joy he experienced knowing that when he died he would be with Jesus forever. And he knew that you and he were joined together forever. Someday we will meet again to fellowship with him.  Scriptures tell us that true believers will be absent from the body and present with the Lord instantly.  2nd Cor 5:8 We rejoice with you knowing that our friendship together will last forever in heaven. God bless you and your family. Faithfully lifting you in prayer. In Christs' love, Deny & Ann Gallagher
