George could spin a great tall tale, a talent which his sons seem to have inherited; he could catch you off guard in mid-conversation with a witty quip that made you giggle; he loved his family and worked hard to care for them; he spread his generosity far and wide; he had an eye for details, and took pride in a job well done. Everyone who knew him came to love him. Thank you, George, for a life well lived.

The family would like to thank all his care givers.
