Carol our arms are around you in prayer and strength you lost the love of your life and best friend and we lost our best friend also. We have so many memories of trips and hanging out at each other houses. The last trip was last fall to Florida! How many times did we have breakfast at Skillets?? Rest peacefully our dear friend!
Carol our arms are around you with love!!! You not only lost the love of your life but your best friend as we did. We have so many memories of wonderful times and trips together and hanging out at each other’s house! We will miss John terribly but we still have you. Rest peacefully our friend.
I remember you telling me how beautiful I looked on my wedding day. I remember you and Carol being so proud of me on my graduation day. I remember getting my first James Avery bracelet (that i still have) from you and Carol. I remember you meeting every one of my children. I made sure i always came to see you at your office every time I went to the law firm. I remember all the jokes you told me growing up (and with a straight face so I would believe you)! I was so gullible and you took every opportunity you could to make me smile, laugh, and sometimes just to see the gears turning in my head as child haha. I remember you having a cigar all the time with my dad. I remember during Christmas telling me how John Jr. had broken mostly every bone in his body! I wish I was able to see you once more before the Lord took you home. I find it so amazing that you loved racing and passed it on to your son, and he passed it on to his kids as well as mine! I’m so thankful for the time my family and I had with you Mr. John.
J0hn was a wonderful golfing companion.He had a gentle way of teaching and sharing his knowledge about the game.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Playing golf will never be the same without you my friend. It was nothing for us to play golf in temps over 100 degrees, play in the rain, snow or sleet. Heck, you’re the only person I’ve ever known to have been struck by lightning! Yet no matter the storm you still had NO fear and always wanted to putt out or finish 18 holes! And, by god we always did! What a blast we had, even getting kicked off of ColoVista.... ha ha thanks, junior!
I already miss you pal.
We had a memorable journey together for over 15 years at BMP and I greatly appreciate all John taught me, both professionally and especially before my wedding ("always say 'Yes Dear'"). I'm praying for you Carol, John Jr. and the rest of the family.

Fair winds and following seas sir.
One of my fondest memories is when Uncle John saved my life. I was around 7 years old and my family was visiting Virginia for the first time. I remember how excited I was, not just to see everyone but also because they had a pool. I couldn't change into my bathing suit fast enough once we arrived from the airport. I followed Christy to the pool. My dad and Uncle John were talking by the pool. She jumped off the diving board and I thought I would do the same. At the exact same moment, Uncle John asked if I could swim and my dad said, “nope, not a lick”. Uncle John jumped in immediately with clothes, shoes and all and saved me. Thank God I was fine and it became a story that we giggled about for many years. I love and miss you, Uncle John. You were taken from us way too soon.
When we were younger John and I both bought sets of golf clubs because we wanted to start golfing. We took a lesson with a pro at the Munic Golf course in Galveston. The lesson didn't do much for my game. I eventually lost interest and stopped playing. John, on the other hand, took quickly to it and he became a really good player. You will be greatly missed brother in law.
Please accept my condolences on the passing of John. It was an honor to have known and work for him. May God embrace you in comfort during this difficult time.
Dear Carol, and family, our Deepest Sympathy on the loss
of John. He was a wonderful man, and we know he will
be missed by all who knew him.
Our Prayers are with you, May John Rest in Peace.
Sincerely, Marie and Skip Valentine
My greatest memory of John was when he and Carol were living in an apartment off Ferry Rd. John had come to pick me up to go to their apartment and was in his pride and joy! He was known for drag racing and someone challenged him while we were on Seawall Blvd. He complied for a short while. When we got to the apartment and he told Carol he had raced while I was in the car, Carol had a small but controlled fit and told him he knew he was not to race while I was in the car. I could tell while he was driving that he was restraining himself from going to fast and I thoroughly enjoyed the "ride". It was awesome. I love you John and will miss you everyday! I know you are in heaven cracking jokes and serving the best drinks ever!!!
Carol and family, we are very sorry for your loss. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.
John will be missed by all of us who were lucky enough to work with him through the years. He was solid, steady, loyal and kind, regardless of the challenge the moment presented. Most importantly, he always took time to proudly share the latest on his family and to ask about your own. God Bless the George family in this difficult time.
A life well-lived. The positive impact John had on our lives and so many others can not be overstated. So grateful to have known him and thankful for his mentorship. He never steered me wrong and taught me to persevere through so many of life's challenges. He will be sadly missed by both of us.
Our heartfelt condolences to Carol and the Family. We are so sorry for your loss.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
