    I have known and worked with George since the 1970’s. I dearly loved the man. We arranged to meet for lunch a time or two when he would shuttle kids to the Shriners Hospital here in St. Louis. The last time I talked to him was last April I believe, just before is death apparently. I have call him him a few time since then, and tried again just recently. That’s when it dreadfully crossed my mind that he may have passed. So I went on a search hoping beyond hope that my worst fears were unfounded. But after coming across this memorial I discovered that my worst fears were true. I miss his phone calls and his wonderful spirit. He was the same man 50 years as he was the day he passed. I remember Roxy too. They were a pair, and I loved being with the two of them. If I knew how to reach Bill Goff I would let him know, but George and I both lost track of Bill. There are a few others that knew George that I will reach out to and will let them know. May God bless him and Roxy. They are both loved and missed.

    I knew George when I was Receptionist at U.S. Engineering. He would come & sit in the lobby from time to time, & share his cynicism & humor. He would be pleased that I’v willed my property to the Shriner’s Hospitals for Children.

      Thank you Phyllis – The Shriner’s Hospitals do so much for children. My dad was proud to be a Shriner. He loved being a volunteer to help drive the van of kids to the Saint Louis Hospital.
      He also loved being an engineer and I remember him working at US Engineering.
