He was a teacher and coach.  George found his calling as an insurance agent in Grand Junction, where he worked for Farmers Insurance for nearly 40 years.  George was a proud member of the Grand Junction business community and a generous giver to causes from museums to schools across the mountain west.

George enjoyed fishing, hunting, and being in the mountains of western Colorado.  George was a lifelong Broncos fan wore his favorite jersey until the very end.  His sense of humor was his forte and he would most times be in control of the room telling jokes and making others laugh and smile.  George came to know the Lord later in life and Sunday service was the highlight of his week.
