George loved his family. He loved his children and he especially loved all of his cousins. The only boy among all his siblings his sisters always looked after him. Though I’m sure he would say he looked after them. He would stay in touch as much as possible with his family from Chicago and Florida. George had a heart of gold and would assist anyone if he could.
He loved to have a good time. He enjoyed sports, dancing, listening to music and playing chess. He loved to cook or feed you. You never had to worry about him not having enough food for you to get seconds or thirds. He enjoyed his cowboy westerns and kung fu movies. But what he loved the most was the ladies. He was definitely a ladies man. Though he would never remarry after his divorce from Pat he did spend a significant amount of time with Brenda Hardy and Theresa Waller.
George spent many years working in the food and hospitality industry holding several positions. He finished his career in health care services as a nurse assistant.
