George was on his way to work in the logging industry in Oregon or Washington state when he was unable to find work in New Mexico where he was living. He said that he stopped in Cody, Wyoming where his brother Rex was working in the oil fields in Oregon Basin, Wyoming. George never made it to his intended destination because he was offered a job working in the oil fields in Wyoming. Following his enlistment in the Navy Seabees, he was stationed at Pearl Harbor where he served, he returned to working in the oil fields where he worked until he retired from the oil fields in 1963 to operate a service station.
In 1965, he moved his family to Utah where he found work at Hill Air Force Base. He worked at Hill until the time of his death.
George always had a garden and he loved to hunt and fish so that he could help feed his family. He did not believe in hunting or fishing for the sport of it or to see how big of a fish he could catch or big of an elk or big of a deer he could kill.
He made many beautiful inlaid card tables, lamps and nut bowls which he gave to his family as gifts.
He enjoyed spending time with his family members and having outdoor barbecues.
For George's last birthday, the family had a surprise birthday barbecue party for him in which all of his children and grandchildren attended except for one. During the party his grandchildren decorated his Mustang wishing him happy birthday. Following the party, he took all of his grandchildren to his home in his decorated car for a slumber party. He thoroughly enjoyed the day.
