I think I have hardly ever known a kinder, handier, more generous and gracious gentleman than George. George was so good to me and my family when we lived at Rectory School. Many were the times when George’s knack with cars, plumbing and all things mechanical literally saved us . We appreciated his love of trains and Tom so enjoyed talking with him about how the railroads functioned during the Civil War. George was one of the best and we have missed him since moving. I wish his family comfort in their memories of who George was and all he did for others. He was a good man . Blessings and God’s peace to you in this time of loss and remembrance and the celebration of a life well lived.

Condolence from Hannah Army on April 21st, 2015 6:39 pm

All my love to your family for your loss. George was an oustanding man. I loved his smile and kindness. He taught me so much and was always looking out for me and those around him.

Condolence from Marilyn Yarrington on May 3rd, 2015 1:33 pm

Oh – I am so so sorry. I just heard about George’s passing and am
so sad. Your Dad/stepdad and Mary Ellen were two of the best
friends EVER. Sending thoughts to you all.
