    I dated George for a while when I was 19. Years ago. I had a crush on George for years. He was a cashier at Safeway and worked in the dairy and produce also. George was a very hard working young man. it had been years since I had seen him, but he was still the George White I use to have a crush on. Rest in peace and my Mom will be seeing you. She loved you so much. Bless you family.

    I first met George when Sam and I got married in 2009 and he came to Charleston, SC for our little wedding. He came across as a warm person right off the bat and was delightful. He was curious and inquisitive about people and places and easily amused with a ready laugh. It was fun! We passed by a historic fire station downtown from the 1880s that still operates and of course we stopped for George. He and Sam went in and gladly got the grand historical tour by the firemen. George was in his element and loved it. Also, I was so proud to have George eat our famous Carolina barbecue. He ate it and when asked, said it wasn’t really to his taste and much preferred the Kansas City style barbecue :) Great memories.
