I was honored to be George's cousin. I will always remember his big smile, his laugh and his dimples. George, Connie, Skip and Nita and my hubby Dan and I used to play volleyball at Lewis Jr. Highschool. We always looked forward to the nights we'd play. I enjoyed sitting next to George when he and Vicki were able to come to our family lunches. He shared so many funny memories of my dad when most of our family lived in Baker. You'll be missed George, and I'll always remember the good times, & the great memories I will cherish always.
Love
Suzie and Dan McCarty
