My Deepest Condolences to the family! A kind man I had the pleasure of knowing since High School, Hoot as he was affectionately known had a lot of heart, he wasn't the biggest, strongest, fastest player on the team but he always showed up with all he had, and always had a kind heart! Will be Truly Missed....

My sincerest sympathies for your loss! I knew George from school and was saddened upon hearing of his passing. I always looked forward to his morning posts. He always put a smile on my face, but that was how George was, he was so kind, and sweet he'd message me now and again to check on me. I will miss my dear friend and his his huge heart of gold! Now you are with your lovely Jody once again. RIP dear, dear friend. I'll miss you always.
