George was one of the nicest guys I have met. He was very kind to me as a young employee, fixing one of my mistakes in the 200 West shop and not exposing me to coworkers. He taught me a lesson and made sure I knew it. I will always be grateful and pass it forward. Rest In Peace.
We were very shocked and saddened by the sudden loss of George. May the good Lord comfort your hearts as you process this grief and many changes to come. He is in good hands and with the Lord, that he has loved and served for many years. God Bless all of you.
