I will never forget that George sang at mine and Paul's wedding in 1975. What a beautiful voice he has. We were so thankful for his blessing of song for us. Our heartland prayers are with the family during this time.

Paul and Pam Moore.

We, at Sierra Surgery in Carson City loved George as a friend, follow co-worker and dynamic smoker of fine meats. His salsa and other contributions to many many potlucks were always the first dishes to go!! We will miss him fiercely. We are saddened by his passing. We are relieved to know that his wishes were honored and much much love to his sister Linda. She was truly his advocate and stood by his side to the end. Thank you Linda, for keeping us updated on all the ups and downs that George encountered. You are truly an angel.
