Dear Eileen & Family,
George was a friend to many & a member of the Tamaqua Area Class of 1963. He was an Outstanding Athlete in every sport he participated in, be it Football, Basketball, Track or Baseball. He loved playing & doing his best. We the classmates of 1963 will miss him, but are glad he no longer is in pain & disabled from enjoying life to the fullest. God Bless you all with many great memories of this very special man. We, his classmate & friends, will carry his memory in our hearts.
