Buddy was an amazing father, family man, mentor, and friend.Hard work, discipline, love, and generosity were his way of living life. He touched the hearts of many, and never knew a stranger.A beautiful man both inside and out, a true blessing who will be forever loved and missed.

Very unfortunate George' passing. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. "Buddy" was one of the good ones, I have known him since we started school in Kremlin in first grade. In recent years we have recalled many "humerus " events when we were younger.
