    George was a great man to have got to have known. He was like a second father he always had the answer to any problem you had. If he didn't he would make something up to make you feel better. lol . I'm so sorry for you Catfish James and Sue he isn't hurting anymore and in a better place. He is on 1# of those Big Hogs in the sky. Rest in peace George prayers to the family !

    We lived Mr George & so enjoyed the times we got to visit with him, mainly at Pinetree, & he was always so full of fun..He would always make us smile & laugh out loud at his many funny stories & jokes..we will always remember his iconic saying when someone would make a remark about a really shiny or a really dirty bike..”Did you buy that thing to polish or ride?”’lol..Haven’t bern able to see much of him in the last few years but he left a footprint on our hearts many years ago...& we know you are riding with Jesus today..❤️❤️
