If I had to pick one word to describe George, it would be "strong" strong in body, strong in friendship, and strong in spirit. I recall a time in elementary school gym class when our whole class cheered George on, as he struggled to break the school record for pull-ups.

It seems such a short time ago that I watched George excel in gymnastics or play in the marching band. While I didn't stay in touch over the years I recently reconnected with George and many other Pike classmates through Face book. My sympathy and condolences to the family, the memories and times shared will be cherished throughout our short time here.

George was a friend of mine and in the same class at Pike High School. He had tremendous energy and was always quick to smile and be friendly with everyone. Although we didn't stay in contact beyond high school, I was not surprised to read the obituary and learn of his many talents. I was able to see him again in 2010 at our high school reunion and we shared a brief conversation that touched me deeply. He was a
