So sorry to hear about George. While only running into him occassionally as an adult, some of my fondness childhood memories were when we competed in youth baseball during the summers of the mid-60’s as kids. I doubt that he forgot them either. I’m sure he’ll be missed by all that got to know him during his short time here on earth. My thoughts are condolences are with his family and friends at this time.
