My deepest sympathy to Betty and family. I will always hold George close in my heart. He was more like a brother to me than an uncle. He helped me throughout my childhood and was always my dear friend. I will remember George with fondness and love for all the wonderful things he helped me with during our lives together. He will be dearly missed!

He taught me so many things growing up and somehow managed to always be positive with me no matter how much of a brat I was at times. I'll always remember the fishing, hunting, golfing, and our trips to the Adirondacks every summer. All the "chores" lists I had whenever I came to visit and never minding doing any of them. Thank you for everything you taught and did with me Grandpa, I love you. Heaven gained an Angel this past Friday.
