George was the finest Oklahoma Sooner I've ever met. I kept in close touch with him until he got married, and was fortunate enough to have spent an evening visiting with him and all our other high school buddies ( Randy Sumrall, Ron Brooks, James Latham, John Epperson, and others ) shortly before his unfortunate accident. To this day we still tell stories about our experiences with George when we all get together. He was a great friend and is sorely missed.

George taught me to play poker while waiting behind stage, as we rehearsed for choir.
He was fun and such a nice person, looks like he had a good life although so short.
