We are so sorry to hear of George's passing.. He was a man of principle, plain spoken, and honest. For Dick, he was almost like family. From the first day of school until his passing, they have been friends. We loved his quirky sense of humor, and that laugh of his.... no one could laugh like him!! We always enjoyed his visits. He was the nicest man. Our grandsons liked and respected him, enjoyed hearing him tell stories, as well as stories their Grandpa Dick told about him and George running around in their teen years. Cody said George was definitely a straight up guy! I think that says it all! George will be greatly missed! God bless and comfort your family during this most difficult time.
