He was a 1951 graduate of Baton Rouge High School and served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean conflict. Those who knew George knew he was a generous and giving soul who would give the shirt off of his back to anyone. Following his service in the Navy, he enjoyed a long career as a premier wallpaper hanger. He was sought out not only in Baton Rouge but the surrounding are for his incredible commitment to detail. While there to hang wallpaper, he would routinely do unrelated jobs to assist his customers. All of his life he was an avid fisherman and hunter and those who knew him reaped the rewards of his catch. After retiring from his life long career as a wallpaper hanger, his craftsmanship continued in the form of painting, building model ships and beading. He enjoyed sharing his beading treasurers to the delight of many.
