Dear Sherry & family,Saundra & I were very saddened to learn of the passing of George Black. George was one of those people you were always so happy to see whenever you ran into him at the store, on the street, at a party, or wherever. It made no difference . What you saw was what you got in every case. George never disappointed me. A big smile, a hearty laugh, a hug, a warm greeting and handshake , exchange of ideas, always awaited me whenever I was blessed to cross his path. George was a big man physically and in many ways he seemed bigger than life itself. So much energy and enthusiasm, and always a positive thought for me. George was truly genuine in every way. I will never forget him and always be grateful for his many years of loyalty and support to the Galveston Racquet Club. George will truly be missed and never forgotten by so many people he encountered in this life. Our prayers are with you and your family during this time of grief and loss. Love, Tom & Saundra Cook

To the family of George Black I want to convey my deepest sympathy and know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. I have been so saddened to hear of his passing. Although I cannot be there in person to celebrate George's life, know that I am there in spirit. My thoughts and prayers are with Sherry and family. As kids, George and I grew up together, and had so much fun with all our neighborhood friends. He will be missed by all of us. He will always be remembered by this Ball High School classmate and childhood friend. God speed George. I know we will all meet again in heaven. The soul that dwells with God is secure. God Bless you all. Rest in Peace George.

Rest in peace, George. George was a founder and hearty member of the Krewe of Harlequins. Though many of us couldn't dance worth a hoot, we gave it our all.....and had a whole lot of fun in the trying. May God's peace be with Sherry, Joshua and the rest of the family.

Some passing's are hard to believe and accept; especially, when the loss is someone so close to one's heart. George will be an amazing spiritual memory in my heart forever. God Bless George, and his family, now and in the after-life.

May George sleep in Heavenly Peace and may God grant peace & comfort to Sherry and the rest of the family in this time of sorrow.I've known George since Ball High School and also attended St.Paul's Lutheran Church with him. He was very much a gentleman.

George was one of my older brother's first friends upon moving to Galveston in the mid 1960's. I remember my brother returning to our home in Louisiana with George and another friend for a weekend visit. I was just ten years old, but I remember the laughter and fellowship as these three young men embraced the Cajun experience. Later, I moved to Galveston as a teenager and bumped into George upon occasion. His smile is unforgettable. My love and prayers to his family and friends. This fella really embraced life! Well done George.
