Sorry to hear this Jean. George’s sense of humour always brightened my day at the Mohawk games. He was quite the character and it was a pleasure to have known him.

So sorry to hear about George’s passing, my thoughts are with Jean and Family. Could not have asked for a nicer neighbour. Hope your shooting the breeze with Chuck.

So sorry to hear about your loss, my condolences go out to you Jean and your family.
I had some good laughs with George bartending at the Legion on Tuesday nights when he played crib.
