A Celebration of Life will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 26, at his home, 3613 Granada Drive,, Richland Hills, Texas. Born in Wisconsin to German immigrants, he grew up on his family dairy farm. While working in the fields, his lifelong love of aviation was born as he gazed above at the airplanes on approach to Milwaukee. He purchased his first airplane before he had even flown in an airplane by trading one of his motorcycles which he raced on the track and hill climbing. Survivors: He is survived by sons, George Jr., Greg and his wife, Mary; grandson, Alan; and numerous great-grandchildren. His companion and friend for decades, Reba Ratliff, survived him and many of her family who had become his family.
