George was one of my best friends and classmates. I am so sorry for his passing. We shared many happy times together, One of my favorite memories was at the farm feeding the livestock in the snow while George was calling them to come eat. George was a drummer in the band, his sense of humor kept us all laughing in and out of class. George will always be remembered in my heart. May God bless his family and give them peace.
