Uncle George, You left us too soon and we can't imagine life without you in it. Growing up so close to you in Appleton, sharing vacations and every important family event was an integral part of our lives. Never forgotten will be the annual trips to Lake Buckatabon where you took us fishing many times. Remember fishing for perch by the island using the bamboo cane poles? The time of day was probably not the best for fishing but the time spent on the water with you on those gorgeous afternoons was priceless. You were part of our family and there will always be an empty seat for you at our table. Rest in Peace and watch over us. We love you. Mary Jean, Karl, Emily, Elizabeth, Samantha, Christian, Chad & Isabelle.

Uncle George, We will miss you dearly now that you are gone. You were so much a part of our family. Birthday parties, Flag Day, Holidays, and unexpected visits will never be the same without you. Who will we make the "2nd" pan of Noodles and Cream for? Spending time up north fishing and swimming with you was special for our entire family. Everybody should be so blessed to have an "Uncle George" in their lives. Your exemplary life should be an inspiration to us all and has earned you the embrace of God. Love, Mark & Lynn, Faustine & Teagan, Miles, Laura, & A.J., Gabrielle
