    Papa George was a kind, dear, loving man. Sharp and full of jokes and full of warmth. A beloved father to Sandy and a special friend to her friends. A bit of a flirt too I must say! Papa loved life up until the end and now may he rest in peace.

    May his memory be for blessings.

    For five short years I have had the honor to know George.  His zest for life and good humor made him a very special person.  May all the wonderful memories stay with us.

     Rest in peace, George.  You were loved.

    I"ve known George a long time from the days of bowling with the Swedish American Athletic Association to the BTC.  He was a terrific bowler and enjoyed the competition at every level.  He was a wonderful man and will certainly be missed.

    George was a very optimistic person.  He was always smiling and happy to see visitors.  George was looking forward to his major 100th year birthday, but he just missed it by a few months.  We will all remember him on his birthday this June.

    George was such a wonderful model for how to be resilient despite life's adversities. He loved his life until the end.

    George was a true gentleman. I can't remember when he wasn't smiling. He always had a nice word to say to all. He will be missed. For those who didn't know him, you were cheated.

    RIP George
