I will miss Uncle George. He was always so positive. He was always upbeat. My thoughts and prayers go out to George's son David and David's wife Ruth, all their kids and grandkids. Also to his sister, my mom Dotty. I know Aunt Mary and Uncle George are together again. Love you Uncle George rest in peace.

I'm so sorry to hear of George's passing. Dave, Ruth, and family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. I enjoyed spending time with George when we lived across the street in Pleasant Valley. He would always set an extra chair in the front yard so we could sit and watch the cars pass. We had some fun projects together with the lawnmower, shelves in the garage, etc. I'm glad to have known him. He and I were good friends and I'll miss him. Becca, Owen, and I hope your family finds healing and comfort.
