I just found out that George has passed away. My condolences to Jan and the family. I met George at a baptism in Greece and I was hoping to see him again on a visit to Colorado. May George find his peace and always be in the heart of everyone.

George will be missed, here on earth, by so many, but received warmly in heaven by so many as well. I have so many fun memories of George and my brother Ron and all the things they did together.

I have so many precious memories of George and the whole family...but one of the most memorable, and sort of life changing, was when I came to Colorado after college to help at hunting camp on Bald Mountain with George and Jan. I'd never been and really had no idea what it would be like. On the wagon ride up it was so cold someone lent me their felt lined, that was something I never knew about. Helping Jan cook in the tent where she, George and I slept...they were so kind and gracious to me, who knew so little. The one hunter who asked to take my picture because he was going to tell his wife about the 'indian helper' at camp.....he got that 'misinformation' from guess who...yes, George. it made for a good laugh! :) Riding out from camp to where you could see SO MUCH, SO BEAUTIFUL! Thank you George (and Jan) for the treasured memories you've given me over the years! I love you! always, Ila Jean
