George was a great softball cheerleader! Along with Tim, Rusty, and others, he sat on the sidelines and coached Mary and friends for many years! Just one of the memories of good times with George that made us all laugh. He even talked me into milking a goat, totally a "George-thing"! We have a lot of memories to remind us upon that great smile.

Our sincerest concondolences to Mary, family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. There are so many great memories shared with George and Mary. Family functions, horse back riding on the beach in Mexico (Jorge in his poncho and sombrero), Jim buying a limo just to pick you all up at the airport in Phoenix, the horse races, lots of card games around Hazel's kitchen table after church services. George, you are one of the great ones. Give all of our family members up there our love and hope Jim, and Mick have your favorite beverage in hand.
