George loved his family and was known as a person who would do anything for you. He treasured his time at the "house on the lake" in Michigan, fishing from the pier and taking family and friends on rides in the pontoon boat. He loved all sports, but bowling was the sport George took the greatest joy from. He won many trophies in mixed leagues with his wife and in men's leagues on teams with his friends
Special thanks to the staff of the Carlyle House for all of the love and support they showed George and his family during his residence.
