George was my landlord on 2319 P for 9yrs. He was the most intelligent, funny laugh of pure joy. He would always be there if you needed him. Never had a harsh word towards others. Just a pure loving friend. Also help to push me to buy my own home. I called him and said. I got it George! That laughter of joy from him.. Will be dearly missed.

It is so hard to think about this world, without George in it. George was my first friend at the dog park, him and Ruth. I hope they are joined again. We need all the gentle souls like George in our lives, I will remember him, until we meet. Mel Black

George was such a good man. He was one of the very first people we met when we moved to Galveston. He was always welcoming and positive. He filled his life by giving to others. Great Smile! He will be missed by many.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I have never met a kinder man. I called George the mother hen of our group. Always trying to help and care for others. Our loss is heavens gain. He will be sorely missed and forever remembered.

George was an awesome person. We feel very fortunate to have known him. His presence at our holiday meals and gatherings made the day considerably more enjoyable. While our hearts are broken that he has left us, we know he is now at his reward in heaven with Jesus and all of those he has missed over the years. May God welcome him into the kingdom of heaven and may his sole Rest In Peace. God speed George! Keep a light on for us and we look forward to seeing you again some day.
