  1. George was a great father in law. He always had a smile or grin on his face. I could see the love he had for his family daily. He accomplished so much in his 97 years. He loved fast planes, cars, sports, and I believe he was somewhat of a daredevil. He had no greater love than that of his family. I venture to say he completed his “bucket list”. He served his country with honor and honored his family while doing so. He will be missed by all of his family and the love he instilled in his family will always be remembered.
