Sorry to hear of George's passing, but we know he is reunited with Romaine his beloved wife and is now with his heavenly Father. We loved to talk with George as he was a very kind, smart, and loving man. We were blessed to have known both he and Romaine.

I am so sorry to hear that George has passed on. I carpooled with George and two other guys from Westminster to Goddard for two years ('76 - '78). I worked for Computer Sciences Corporation and George worked for the Government. George told a lot of jokes on that one hour drive everyday to Goddard and also some interesting stories, especially about the war in the Pacific. I will always remember George for his humor and his undeniable patriotism.
