To Greg & Family, So sorry to hear your loss. I remember when my mother (Noreen Sawicki) myself and my grandfather (Arthur Chagnon) use to go over to visit you and George back in the day when you lived in south Meriden. We all had a very nice time. My Condolences - Brian

My sincerest condolences. I worked with George for many years on the CSP. He always had a big smile. The thing I remember most was his talent as a plumber. He did many jobs at my home.
