    I only have loving and fun memories of my uncle George. His smile would light up any room. He was such a wonderful person and a kind soul. My heart is broken. I will always think of you with much love and happy thoughts because that’s what what my uncle George is to me. My deepest heartfelt condolences to my daddy and Toni mom, my uncle Dudley and auntie Diane. Cousin Tiffany, Aunt Barbara and cousin Jennifer. You all are close in my heart. I love you.

    When Dudley was gone a year to Antarctica, George & I hung out together. We made a deal, he’d go to Dionne Warwick concert with me if I’d go to Iron Maiden concert with him. Then when we went to Hawaii after the family moved there, he introduced us to Gabby Pahanui and the Hawaiian renaissance music of the 70’s. Always grateful for that. Good times. I’d like to think George is at peace with family, having a beer, petting his cats, laughing and talking story. Aloha, George.

    Uncle George you will be missed. I'll never forget roaring down the road, uncle George behind the wheel of grandpa's big red Cadillac sliding from one end of the back seat to other from all the Armor All. It was thrilling and terrifying all at once. I remember seeing you in the evenings out watering grandma's thousands of orchids. Take good care of grandpa and grandma up there and may you rest in peace. Much love and Aloha.

    Losing George, my youngest brother took me down memory lane with Mom and Dad and my three brothers. George and I had a road trip several years ago. I was visiting Mom and Dad in Florida. Dad and I were talking about cars and he helped me pick out a nice used Towncar. Mom and Dad didn't want me to drive alone, so George became my protector and entertainer on the road trip home to Ohio. George didn’t travel much so this was an adventure for him. This past August my husband Mel, and I left on vacation from Yuma AZ to the east coast to visit family and friends. We met George at the Cracker Barrel restaurant for dinner in Williamsburg. I showed him the manufacturer’s name on our RV, The Suite by “Georgie Boy.” I told him it was named in his honor, and he had a good laugh. We had a nice dinner and closed Cracker Barrel with chocolate cake and ice cream. It was great to see George happy and satisfied with his life, job and friends. I love you, Aloha, brother George!
