So sorry to hear of George's passing. Certainly sudden as I had just communicated with him on our site this past December. It is a terrible reminder that we just don't know when our time is up on this earth. I was looking forward to possible seeing George at our 50th reunion.  My heartfelt prayers to his family for God's comforting at this sad time.  Brenda

I really don't remember George from high school. We became friends and business partners about 35 years ago.. George was intelligent, quick and had a great sense of humor.  I loved his politics. My condolences go out to Cindy and his family.

As a newbie transfer into Olney in my junior year, George was one of the first people to make me feel at home, I remember him fondly from our homeroom with Mr. Eltonhead. Bless you, George. Robin Mondros Holland

I was shocked and saddened to hear of George's passing.  We had just communicated this past December for the first time since high school.  George and I grew up in the same neighborhood and attended the same elementary school.  He was a great and a big part of my childhood school days.  Rest in peace.

A true friend is someone who, even though you may not see or speak with him for years, picks up the conversation and good feelings right where you left off the last time....  George was one of those special friends to me.

Back in the 60's when the music scene was exploding, a bunch of us Olney boys decided to follow in the footsteps of our heroes, and some of us who aspired to be the "next Beatles" actually found enough talent within ourselves to learn how to play the guitar, and even carry a tune vocally.  Even though we had formed separate bands with other friends, George, Ed Preman, Billy Buckman, and I bonded as the guitar-playing Olney Guys, who would eventually get together and form our own band of brothers, and along with Dennis Reilly, we rocked the house at a few OHS assembly programs.  They were experiences that permanantly bonded our friendship; so much so that we were able to put our band together again for our 45th reunion, which was truly an amazing experience.  We rocked the house one more time!

The 45th reunion has been made that much more special now that we have realized that it was the last time the five of us would perform together.  God willing, Ed, Billy, Dennis and I will do it again at the 50th, and George will certainly be on stage with us in spirit.

George was truly a special guy; passionate about music, politics, friendship, and especially....humor!  

He could light up a room with his effervescent personality, and his laughter was one-of-a-kind; I would laugh just hearing him laugh.  Jeanne and I got together with George and Cindy a few times over the years for Keswick Theatre concerts, and it was always fun, and special. We were set to get together again in June.

I'm happy to have known such a character, buddy, and dear friend.

Rest in Peace, Pal.
