George was a loving husband, devoted father, and cherished grandfather and great-grandfather.  His devotion to his family was always his top priority.  He also dearly loved his 4-legged family members, Molly and Shadow.

George found great pleasure working in his garage and making things for his family.  He and Nancy always enjoyed spending time with Nancy’s sister, Ruth and her husband, Joe.  He was a member of AF and AM Masonic Lodge in Wilmington.

  • George (Moo) It’s been many years since we all lived together in Garfield Park, but remember those who were our friends. I was sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. How blessed that he lived many years and that his life was a testament to his love for his Lord. I pray you are surrounded with love and support and precious memories at this time.

  • George, Sharon, Jimmy and family. So sorry for your loss. Your dad was an amazing person. I always admired his adventurism when it came to business. Funny,but one thing sticks out in my mind was his homemade horseradish. Nobody else could come close to his. He was a very kind man.
    Prayers for all of you.
