    I just heard of George’s passing (10/15/2015), and was shocked. I worked with George for many years as a Johnson County Fire and Rescue dispatcher. It was George that was instrumental in getting me that job. I have very fond memories of years back. I first met George when we were in our late teens. Driving around in our cars and communicating on the CB radios. Our call signs were the cubic inches of our cars engines. Our group used to meet at the Sambos Restaurant (I think it was Sambos) for coffee with our scanners waiting to get a call from our Fire Department (I was a volunteer for Overland Park, George and Dean were volunteer’s with Merriam. Rest in peace my friend as you have been called for your final call. My thoughts go out to George’s family.

    George, I will miss you. I’m with you on that SC BBQ. Thanks for being a long friend. Your partner in crime: Tom…

    I first met George when Sam, his brother, 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 inquisitive about people and places, was easily amused, and had a ready laugh. We passed an old historic fire station from the 1880s that is still operational and of course we stopped for George. He and Sam went in and the firemen gladly gave them the history and a grand tour. George was in his element and loved it. Also, I was so proud to have George try our famous Carolina Barbecue. When asked how he liked it, he said it wasn’t quite to his taste, and he much preferred the Kansas City style barbecue 🙂 Great memories!

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.

    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.
