George was an owner/operator truck driver for 50 years. He was a member of the Cushman Club. George and Carolyn enjoyed traveling by motorcycle and later in a motorhome. He enjoyed camping and hunting, yard work, along with sitting in the backyard watching birds, squirrels, and the trees. He also liked tinkering and when he was done everything was put right back where it came from. He enjoyed coloring along with watching Gun Smoke and other old westerns. George was known for being a jokester and loved a good laugh.
George will always be a part of Independence street and the front window won’t be the same without him looking out for us. (quote from a neighbor)
