My sincere sympathy for George’s family. He was my first supervisor when I hired in at Kammer plant in 1983. George was always a gentleman. I think he had worked at Tidd plant in Brilliant and knew my aunt who also had high regard for George. May God comfort you and I will keep you in prayers.
It was an honor and privilege to get to know George for the short time he was with us. Thank you for sharing him with us!
May God bless you and keep you, may God lift His Light to shine upon you.
