So sorry for your loss. I am honored to have worked alongside George with EIII, and proud that we each could say "I married a Fayas". Especially appreciate the occasional stop at the Blind Duck for burritos when time allowed. Praying for peace for you all.

What wonderful memories of George. As friends we hunted, as a pilot we saved lives. I'm reminded of a particular return flight from Milwaukee in the wee hours of the morning. As customary, he would call in a position report near Fond du Lac. That morning the position was "halfway between the sun and the moon". How appropriate when the moon is setting and the big orange sun is rising. Touching. I bet he's there now. My condolences to his compasses, Carolyn and Dan.

I flew with George as part of the flight team with Elll. He was a great pilot and friend. I will miss him deeply. God bless you on your time of grief.

Dear Carolyn and family,
I want to express my deepest condolences. I never met George, but through the 1/9 site I exchanged good conversations with him. He always sounded upbeat and was proud of his service.
Rest in God's eternal peace.

Carolyn, I was really saddened at the news of George's passing. Although we never met, George and I had a common bond through the 1st Battalion 9th Marines. As a corpsman who knows, I'm certain that George's flying skills saved many lives in Vietnam. May God comfort you now and in the coming days.

Carolyn,
Sharon and I send our most heartfelt condolences to you, Dan and your families. I'm so glad that we had the chance to meet you and and enjoy our reunion with Boo and Mike & Yvonne Walker in Florida. I was so happy that he had met you, the love of his life, and that you had the chance to live so many wonderful adventures and have such a fine son. I'll forward Boo's obituary to some of his old Scarface squadron mates. I know that they will sadly remember the passing of another great Scarface brother, and I will always remember the better half of "The Dynamic Duo".
Semper Fi, Boo!

Carolyn and Daniel...I am forever grateful for first having met you, Carolyn, because it afforded me a chance to know and love George and Daniel. George ended up stealing one of my best college roommates ever, but what I gained in knowing him and then Daniel has more than made up for that!! I treasure my visits with your family over the years...I will never lack for fun memories. Many hugs to my dear friends...

Carolyn and Dan,

We were so sorry to read about George's passing. We will always fondly remember our scouting days together from Cub Scouts and Camp Rokilio through Boy Scouts, Gardner Dam, and Eagle Scouts. He was a wonderful role model and leader. We are all better for knowing him. Rest in peace, George.
