It was a Great Honor to work with George over the years at E.C.I. He was a good man.

George was one of the few people I've known about whom nothing negative was ever said. I met George back in the Merritt Athletic Club days, and he was universally well-thought of. I'll miss talking to him in the gym, and reminiscing about all those who we hung out with back in the day. Peace and Blessings on your Journey, George. You are missed.--Mike Goebel
