George was caring and was always ready to extend a helping hand.

George was a loving son, cousin and brother. George was an amazing soul and is greatly missed.

Wow.   If I remember correctly, George was kind of quiet yet he was always nice.    I'm sorry to hear he's gone, but believe he's in a better place.

I remember George as well, had a few classes with him over the years at SGHS, was a quiet and sincere person, and i enjoyed talking with him when the opportunity presented itself.   Too bad we don't seem to hear about these passings for what appears to be years after the fact.  It would have been great to see him again at the reunion.  Tom & Sharon Cepek

George was a quiet guy. I didn't recognize his name, but when I saw his picture, I remembered him immediately. Sorry to hear he is no longer with us, but I agree with Carol - he's in a much better place now.
