George was a very interesting personality. He had very poor beginnings, but he never gave up on anything. He was a self-taught person. If he wanted to do anything, he did not give up on it. He was a carpenter, an operating engineer of heavy machinery, and farmer. The one thing that he accomplished was to fly a small airplane. He was 69 years old when he got his single engine land flying certificate from the "Dept. of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration". We have two children, seven grandchildren & seven great-grandchildren. All still living as of this day in Mar. 2016. We all miss him and he is loved dearly.

Up date: There is now an addition great-grandson, Colton. He was born Nov. 2015.


A very good Friend & Pastor
