George impacted people's lives in ways big and small. His dry sense of humor and quick wit always kept things lively. He is known for his supportive and encouraging spirit and always helping others live to their fullest potential. We all have our special relationship with George and memories of conversations and things he would say. As he journeys on, we will remember him sitting on his back porch enjoying a quiet afternoon overlooking his farm, and deeply appreciating his blessed life. He was loved deeply and surrounded in his last moments by many people whose lives he touched. Thank you George for your encouragement, your honesty, and your love. We love you!
