My thoughts and Prayers are with his family. George was a fellow soldier and friend. Fond memories with him and Deb, fun times at SAAF, and especially his companionship in Desert Storm. He was a good soldier and leader. R.I.P. George, Salute.

Very sorry to hear about George's passing. He was a mentor to me in the Army as we arrived in Germany within a few weeks of each other. He became our First Seargeant and I served with him the rest of my time. He was always a fun guy to be around. Lots of great memories.
My condolences to George’s family I had the pleasure of being a coworker with George for many years. I always enjoyed working with George. He loved riding his motorcycle.
