I still have fond memories of George Towner, my first soccer coach for the Arlington Potomac Kiwanis, I think it was back in 1972. Thank you for everything you have done. I have played your service forward.

Prayers for The family and for George! He was a very sweet and fun man! I have many fond memories of a great travel soccer trip thru Europe with Mr Towner, his son Matt and my brother Syd´s soccer team. May the souls of the faithfully departed Rest In Peace!
