Lee, Angie, John and families,

I have many fond memories of George. He was always happy and shared many funny stories with us at Lenox. There wasn’t a day that George didn’t have a smile on his face. He will be missed by many.

Keeping you all in my prayers.

Lee, Angie, John, and families,

I spent many a thursday evening playing cards with George and the poker gang from Lenox.
George always had a funny story or anecdote to share with us. Always putting a smile on our faces.
It always amazed me that George could come up with so many variations on playing poker.
Somehow those nutty games seemed to usually favor George when the pot was counted………

George was definitely a ‘one of kind ‘ guy. I didn’t keep up with George after I left the Oxford area, and that is my loss.
He will be missed.
