A great, dignified, old school guy. A life well lived. Gave up flying his airplane when he felt he could no longer be 100% safe - that took courage - which he had plenty of. In one of my darker days as Burlington Fire Chief he gave me some sacred leadership advice that began “Just between you and me . . .” And so it will remain.
My sympathies to Edie - the only politician I ever feel in love with.

i am so blessed to have known George even these few years as we served together on one of his volunteer committments. I honor him for his love of America, his service to his community and his love for Edie. I appreciated his sense of humor and his strength of character. He leaves an empty hole in the fabric of Burlington. Now I honor his memory with my prayers for Edie and his family.
