So sorry for the loss of a great husband, father, and grandfather.  George did many home inspections for me the past 19 years and he had a wonderful way with customers that put them at ease and explained in easy to understand terms the good and bad parts of a home. We had many great conversations over the years, and I will never forget his truly genuine and easy going personality. He will be truly missed.

Dear Marilyn,
Are thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you mourn the loss of George.  I can remember first meeting him when John, Susie and I were at USC.  I remember thinking, wow,  what a handsome guy with such a great sense of humor.  Although you and the family can find peace knowing that George is with the Lord and no longer suffering, we know you all must miss him so much.  We send our thoughts and prayers that God wrap you in His continued comfort and peace.
Bobby and Ginny
