    I worked with George at NWB/USWest/Qwest for many years. He was a very kind man. He acquired a lot of “treasures”, always having an idea of making something out of it. He took wonderful care of his parents for his whole life and theirs. I also know that he loved his son, Ian. George was quiet, but if he trusted you he would speak personally to you, I was one of the lucky ones. George will be missed, but I do know he had a strong Christian belief, and will be welcomed above, greeted with a bag of tools to get to work.

    My sincere condolences to Ian and Emily. Your father was good to me and always offered his knowledge pertaining to our careers at the phone company. He was a good man and I know he is welcome in heaven.
    I could not add anything Carol has not already said. God Bless you.
