My deepest sympathy to Lynn ,Kathy, Beverly, and your family. George was such a great guy, and a great friend to my parents. I will always remember our pool parties when we were kids. Your Dad had such a good sense of humor, and always made me laugh.

A nephew could not have asked for a better uncle than Uncle George rock solid hardworking, honest as the day is long, and with a great sense of humor. And teamed up with Aunt Mary wow, the children and nieces and nephews were in good hands. The values of The Greatest Generation live on with Lynn and Kathy and Beverly. Values such as compassion and charity, but always with a bit of humor on the side Uncle George and Aunt Mary lived by these and they now live on with 3 great women. We were so blessed to have Aunt Mary and Uncle George in our lives. My heart is with the family.

There are no words to truly express the sorry your heart feels. May God comfort you during this very difficult time. What an extraordinary man your father was. The Angels rejoiced in their reunion with him (for he was an Angel on earth), as our souls mourn his departure. May your cherished memories fill the void in your heart with the love that he shared.
