George was the eldest child of Native Americans Joe and Martha Aleck.

He had a traumatic youth, as he was in a boat with his mother and younger sister, Virginia and brother Fred, when it was swamped and sank in the Columbia River. Fortunately for George he knew how to swim and made it safely to shore, though his brother and sister perished.

George did get somewhat of an education, as he went for a period of time to school in Hood River. He had a troubled youth and caused some grief to his parents who had only him left to put their hopes in. He married twice and did a years stint in the penitentary, before seeming to level out. He went down the Columbia to Astoria where he secured a job in the logging industry. However, like his brother and sister, he would also drown. His mother Martha wishing him to be buried with his siblings once his body was found paid $200 to have it returned to her in Hood River.
