George - I am so sorry to hear about your dad. He was such a wonderful person and such a fighter. I will miss talking baseball with him, and I will always remember that dodgers hat he wore even when he was stuck in the hospital. I am also sorry I wasn’t aware of his passing sooner or else I certainly would have reached out. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Sincerely, Kris Roddy

A true gentleman and dear friend. If George was there-you knew everything would be fine! So many incidences that George handled smoothly and ALWAYS remembered the person touches that made each of us feel special. Never a better sight than an aircraft door opening and there he would be! What a special special man...loved his boys!

What a wonderful and kind man. One of my fondest memories of George is in the early 1970's when AA would assign a gate at DCA at Christmas so that the Fire Department could bring in Santa for all the families of its employees. One of the best moments was seeing George's sons sit on "Santa's" lap to tell him what they wanted. Those young boys had no idea they had a very special connection to the man in the red suit... you were so loved, George, and will be truly missed.
