    I will miss George greatly. He was a good friend and I performed in four bands with him. He was an excellent guitarist and performer as well as a songwriter.
    I’ve sent his sister three original recordings from sessions I worked with him spanning the late 70’s to early 80’s that will be played at the service.
    George was fun to be with and added to the camaraderie in the group setting.
    If you knew George then you knew he had no ill feelings toward anyone and was a free spirit.

    Godspeed George!

    You taught me how to play guitar. You’ll always be remembered.
