    Caryl and Gooch family & relatives please accept my deepest sympathy and support for George. He reflected the best values & principles. I was privileged to know George when he served as on-site manager of process chemical services at MOTIVA’s Port Arthur, TX refinery. Can only say good things about him. Great sense of humor, easy-going, knowledgeable with wisdom to spare, willing to share time & thoughtfulness. Those recollections of George & his life will serve as continual encouragement long after this present sorrow.

    Prayers for George’s family. May your memories of George comfort you. I remember him from when we worked together in the Motiva refinery lab. God’s Blessings.

    I shared an office with George in an earlier life. I would go to lunch and when I got back, he would deliver typed phone messages to me. Who goes to that much trouble? He was incredibly well organized, and had the ability to focus on the essentials of doing business, while others were all over the place.
    The thing that most impressed me was than in an earlier career, when George was head of sales in a company, and his boss told him to get rid of some of the salesmen that George valued, George quit that high level job rather than fire the salesmen.
    He was a man of integrity and honesty, and I have valued him as a friend.

    My condolences to the family, it is very sad. I did not know George very well he was two years behind me. I graduated with his sister Faith, and I remember his dad, but everyone knew Ray.
    I am so very sorry and sad.
