    I enjoyed my time with George during my yearly treks from Alaska to Florida. He was always upbeat even when he was having a rough day. I enjoyed our conversations about ham radio stuff too. We had a special bond having both served in the Coast Guard, so we both shared some of our sea stories which always meant a laugh or two. You will be missed my friend. May you have fair winds and following seas on your journey to heaven. Rest in Peace Brother.

    To my old high school friend George. We learned. our radio and flying skills together. Now you are flying higher than you ever imagined.
    Bless you, my friend.

    George:
    You were my Elmer/Mentor and my friend. I will miss our rag chews on the radio and my visiting you at your house where we would talk about radio equipment, flying, aircraft, our time in the service. Thank you for everything you taught me and thank you for being my friend.
    Our loss here on earth is heaven's gain.

    May you rest in eternal peace
    Robert Arnold
