The last time I saw George, we visited about our upcoming elk hunting trips. We were both hopeful... That is how I will remember him, full of hope. I know his family will miss him. My sincere condolences.

I new George for many years at PGG. He was always considerate and helpful to me,
even at times when the press of business and the size of our account might make
it less of a priority for some.

I grew up with George as my neighbor. I liked going over to his house after school. He was a good friend to talk to and let me earn money taking care of Samantha, his chocolate lab. He always had fudge or popsicles for my brother and me. I am greatly saddened by his death. He was too young. A true friend we will miss you.
