So sad to read of George's passing. I have fond memories of him first as my boss back in my early days at Ipsen and then as a good friends of both him and his wife Rita. Prayers and condolences to George's family.

George was not only a loving father and husband but the best brother-in-law anyone could ask for. He was thoughtful and caring of everyone. His nieces and nephews have fond memories of his favorite one-liners, card tricks and jokes. He made everyone smile and feel special. His love of life was very evident. We all will miss him immensely but are comforted knowing he now is with his loved ones. George, our prayers and love are with you. Loving Thoughts, Bev Goodman and Family
