  1. Dear Karen, Travis and Michael,
    I remember the first time I met George. He and Randy were visiting Barbara. I married Randy and George married another Karen. We have been family since. I am so sorry for your loss. I know how proud he was of his boys! I’m so sorry I can’t be there today. My prayers are with your family.
    Love, Karen

  2. George was the best baseball coach that there ever was! He loved his wife and children more than anything in this world. I will never forget the kindness he showed to my family in our hour of need. God bless you and your wonderful family!

  3. I will always remember George for his kind and humorous ways. He had a tough outer shell but once you got to know him he was a big softy that loved his family. He was a great friend and was always there to help me through whatever life threw at me. Many a day we talked and shared stories for hours on end like friends do. He knew his health was bad and always told me that when the time came he was going “to step on over to the other side” Well. I will miss his friendship and our conversations and look forward to some day seeing him “on the other side”. Rest In Peace my friend…..

  4. George was a man with a good heart. I enjoyed all the time I spent with him. He would come by my brother’s house and mow the lawn and did numerous other things with him. We had a few cookouts when I was in town and he was just fun to be around. Sure miss you big G! Will see you someday in the future. My prayers are with the family at this time and wish them well. It’s an honor to have known you and thank you for your service to our country.
