George was one of the best men I ever met and an integral part of my childhood. He and my father worked together for many years at BPD and they would take me rabbit hunting when I was a young boy. Later in life my grandparents bought a place in Warren and George shared everything he knew about raising cattle with them and was always willing to help in any way he could. George was a fantastic role model who lead an exemplary life and he will be missed dearly. My condolences go out to the family. Rest In Peace my friend!!

George has been a friend since I met him in 1969. I will miss our conversations we had at least once a month for years. George was a "straight shooter" and it was pretty much evident where he stood on any issue. You could always depend on George to help if you needed it. I truly loved him and Betty. I already miss him so much.. EVERYBODY loved George.. He was definitely one of the best...

George and I became good friends at South Park High. He was President of our FFA chapter. He was raised by a good hard working Mother and Father. I loved going out to their home and eating at the big table. George was one of the truly good ole "Cowboys ". John Wayne type of guy. Rest in Peace my Friend.

Worked many years with George. A great police officer and a better man. Two things about George stand out in my memory. When he was transferred to narcotics many years ago, I asked him if he was going to grow a beard and long hair, and he laughed and said “if I’m feeling sporty I might pull my shirt tail out”. And anyone who worked much with George will remember that big deck of 3x5 notecards he always carried. If you were trying to remember a license number or an address or any detail from a previous surveillance or case, he rifle through his cards and more likely than not, he’d have what you were looking for. Rest In Peace, my friend.
