I was a childhood friend of George as we lived three blocks from each other and our birthdays were 6 days apart. We were very close until we reached sixth grade and then migrated our separate ways. George's father was a merchant marine during World War II and as a kid George always dreamed of joining the navy and seeing the world. A few years ago I googled his name just to see what had happened to him and found his obituary. As sad as this was, I was pleased to see he had reached the senior level rank of Commander. Later I was able to connect with his sister Cathy who told me that George loved the navy but had several year long deployments at sea, especially during the gulf wars that took a terrible toll on his life and family.

George was one of the funniest people I shared a class with.  He always had a funny remark that helped lighten the moment.  I remember in history class, the teacher asked which branch of the U. S. government declared war, and George answered "Tri-Ship!"  There was nobody like him.

Yes, nobody like him.  He was friends with me right when I moved in from out of state; very decent of him.  Yes, great sense of humor.  Rest in peace, George.

Thanks Patrick for posting. Too many people like him pass away too early in their lives. I'm sure he's making people laugh in his afterlife.
