    Condolences to the family. George was a good man, a friend and he will be missed. I am sure God will have him driving the No. l School Bus in heaven. Treasure your memories, I know I will. Bill

  5. Michael & Christina says:

    We may have called him Uncle George but he was more like the only grandpa we ever knew. He showed us the meaning of unconditional love through his gentle kindness. He never raised his voice to scold us as kids, no matter how much we deserved it.

    I am sure us cousins can have a great debate over who was Uncle George\’s favorite, but that was just a demonstration of his capacity to love, he made us all feel like his favorite (don\’t tell the others but I still think I was his favorite — Chrissy)(nope, it was me!! — Michael)

    Every time either one of us left for Alaska again after visiting, Uncle George would say don\’t forget about us, but that was something he never should have worried about because we could never forget how much he loved us and how proud of us he was.

    We will miss him like crazy, but we know he will always look down on us with the same big smile he always had in life. Love you always Uncle Georgie!

    Love, Chrissy and Michael
