George was the Patriarch, the glue, the peacemaker and a man of God with an undying faith and a never ending love for his family. 

George loved baseball, the shore and vacation trips to the Adirondak mountains.   He will be missed every day.

Private interment will be held in May,  followed by a memorial service that may be attended by all who knew and loved him.
