Last Known Activity
George was my brother-in-law and I knew him to be a dedicated family man who loved his wife and sons. He died at home, which I believe is the way he would have wanted it. This memorial was made to honor him and his service to our country. He is missed.
Other Comments:

All of who love George know that he loved to drink. In checking the deck logs on his ship, I found this entry about him being AWOL. Obviously it was not serious as he was not booted out of the navy. I can relate to it having been AWOL once myself.
