In planning for our funerals several years ago, there was a question pertaining to how one hopes to be remembered. George responded that he hoped people would remember him as "a good man, a good friend, and a good husband". Mission accomplished, my love! Mission accomplished, and surpassed.. Meet you on the other side.:)

Sending sympathy to Dr. Scneck's family. I was just thinking about him, wondering about him, not too long ago. He was my Science Ed. professor at UW-O, and I remember his kind, easy-going personality--sharing his knowledge (and how he took all of our pictures, so he could learn who we were!) Out of all of my professors, he is one (of two) that I remember by name. He has to be recognized for the contribution he made to so many teachers professions. A good man....

Julie, Aunt Margie and family, I'm so sorry for the loss of our beloved Uncle George. He has provided us with so many good talks, laughs, pranks, and smiles for so many years that it's hard to think of up north without a memory of him bringing a smile to my face. Please know that I am thinking of you all today and sending you all much love! XO Linda
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

As the obit says George was a very nice person. I bowled with him on the team Misfits at Super Bowl for 2 yrs. The last game he bowled before leaving for therapy was an amazing 164. Then the league was cancelled due to Covid 19 before he could come back. I am happy I was able to get to know George.

Dear Julie, and all who love George - please accept my sincere condolences upon the loss of this lovely man. Though I didn't know him well, I enjoyed the exchanges we had from time to time at church events, and also noted the obvious devotion of Julie and George to each other. Keeping you in the Light of Lights.

My deepest sympathy to you, Julie and to Rachel. May all those wonderful memories and conversations with George be of great comfort to you, He was truly "One in a million!"

My sincere condolences to the family of George. I met George when he became a member of our Golden K Kiwanis Club. During the time he was with us I enjoyed his presence in our club and I appreciated the willingness George had in making a difference in our club. His vast experiences during his life fit in so well with all of us in Golden K. My only regret is that I did not get to know him even better. But know that we all respected his pleasant temperament and intellectual knowledge, indeed we will miss him. Take care and God Bless all of you.

To the beloved George. I wish I had gotten to know you better..

That is the best picture of George. He smiled and laughed often

My deepest condolences Julie for your loss. George was an amazing man. For a couple of years, when I lived in Viroqua, I would go to Appleton once a month and spend the night at Julie and George's house. George and I would, of course, be up way before Julie. I thoroughly enjoyed those morning conversations. George would pour me a cup of coffee and tell me stories of his life, sometimes express concern for something Julie was going thru and ask my opinion, or just express his love for her. It was always clear how devoted to her he was. George was intelligent, warm, caring, and loving. I can hear his quiet laugh and see his smile and see him modestly shrug off the compliment now as I type that. I loved George. I love you Julie. I am so sad for your loss.
