He was also friends with many in the community that he cared for greatly. George was predeceased by his father, Charles, great niece, Chloe, and both maternal and paternal grandparents.
George was a salt of the earth man who would help anyone in need. Beyond his lifelong strife with a dual diagnosis, he enjoyed a lot of fun times throughout his life, loved to laugh and was always surrounded by family and friends. He was known as "Georgie" by most and for his larger than life sense of humor and big heart. He passionately enjoyed his hobbies of fishing, NASCAR, vintage boats, cars and aircraft.
George was a graduate of Littleton High School class of 1972 and served honorably in the United States Navy. He was a true craftsman at his work in automobile and marine body work and painting. He also loved his work as a house painter and a tow and 18-wheeler truck driver.
George was loved very much and will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
