Colby and Bobby I worked with your dad at Ormet. We had tons of fun. Myself and another one of your dad’s buddies poured the concrete for your basketball court years ago. He was a heck of a guy and would do anything for you. I often tell others of the fun we had at Ormet. I will remember him always. My deepest sympathies.

Bobby and Colby – I’ve never met you but I met your wonderful father. What a kind, gentle person he was. He brought so much joy and happiness to my sister Reggie. As far as I’m concerned, he was a “knight in shining armor”. I’m so sorry for your loss. In the days to come, you will be comforted by your precious thoughts and memories of him. Take comfort also in the words found at Revelation 21:3, 4. George was truly a kind, good man.

My condolences to George’s family, friends, and all of those who have, and will continue to miss him. I had the pleasure of working with George. He gave us all a nickname and a minimum of 1 good laugh every day. He’ll definitely be missed.
