So glad that I got to reconnect with George thru Facebook over the past couple of years. You were one of my best friends growing up...from Kindergarten through College...then life took over. Fun times included going to Traders Point Christian Church together, Band, Kings Island, and making your theatre outfits in High School. So glad that those who live in the Lord never see each other for the last time. Can't wait to see you in Heaven, Georgie.

I was so glad to be able to see George in Hospice a few weeks ago. It meant so much to me and I am so glad I did it. He immediately asked me why I was there, was I visiting one of my family members. "No, George, I'm coming to see you!" He apologized for not being able to attend my sister's memorial service as he had wanted to, 2 years ago...just like "Georgie" as we called him, his

I had the pleasure of being in several productions with George during high school with the PIke HIgh School Theatrical Company. I have to say, many memories came flooding back when my own son played a role that George played in KIss Me Kate. George stole the show as one of the gangsters.
I am so grateful I was able to see him and visit at the 30th reunion in 2010.
My heart goes out to his wife and children. May their love for him keep them strong. Thoughts & prayers to them & his family.

I will always remember George as the racer that made my husband's Christmas 2 years ago very special. There was a photo of George in a midget sprint car in one of my husband's racing magazines. My husband Terry was in awe of the photograph. So after I did some web searching and emailing I was led to George himself. George was so gracious that he sent my husband 4 original photographs of himself in his race cars along with
