Sadly missed by loving nieces and nephews. George worked at the Copper Refinery for 34 years retiring as a supervisor in 1991. An avid outdoorsman George enjoyed hunting and fishing. He particularly spent many happy times at his trailer on Marten River where he was the host for the park. A man of great faith he belonged to the Church of the Ascension where he actively participated in the parish ministries and outreach. George embodied Christ’s teachings of being a Good Samaritan and Good Shepherd to all he met. He can echo the words of St. Paul “I have finished my course I have kept the faith”.
