    I had the great honor of working at Mutual with George for many years. Heaven gained a great man. You are all in my prayers. George will be fondly remembered by all who met him!

    My brother was the kindest person that I ever knew..He always had time for his kid sister, even though I was 10 years younger than him. He would take me with him to Fontenelle Forest and we would hike and he would teach me all about the plants and animals and moss etc, He was always the teacher. He would take me to the movies with him also. Fun movies like Swiss Family Robinson and Bob hope movies were are favorite, He instilled in me my passion for science and that has carried me through two wonderful careers. His wife Kathy is an amazing and wonderful women. His two great kids David and Katie are tribute to him and his wife. His grandson Harrison was the twinkle in his eye, His family has always been the most important thing in his life, My heart and prayers go out to them all. We will all miss him so very much.
