George and I Grew up about 200 yards apart, one of the boys is living in the house I grew up in. I can remember many good times, playing baseball and football at the cemetary near the Ripley school and playing hockey on Swains pond. . He was a good friend and Maureen and I are really sad to hear of his passing. We send our condolences to all the children.

To Bobby, George Jr. and Kim,
Sorry to hear about the death of your father. Unfortunately I was out of state when he passed on and I didn’t hear the news until it was too late. He was one of the guys that I always enjoyed working with at the firehouse. For years he worked tirelessly as a union officer representing us in so many different ways. His work on the fire association was instrumental in creating the workout facilities at

I feel very fortunate to call George a friend. There wasn't anything George would not do for you and I could always count on him. I will very much miss his 'pop ins' at Twin Isles and he always made my day. Words cannot describe the love he had for his family. He was so proud and I always got an update on everyone which I thoroughly enjoyed. I am sure Lucy is happy to have him by her side and I hope he can learn how to chip in Heaven.
Love To All, Steve

I am truly sorry about the loss of George. His wry sense of humor will always remain with me. His entire family is rightfully proud of the ability that George had for a forthright and honorable life.

I worked with George for the Pro Shop at Pine Lakes Country Club in N., Ft. Myers, Fl. He was always in a good mood, which made my day. Always smiling.
