George was such a hard working man. He took many of us up on his plane and we shared many conversations about his martial arts accomplishments. He spoke dearly of his love for his grandson. He never gave up and worked hard as an engineer until a couple of years ago. He was a mentor and dear friend to Steve and the knowledge, experience and friendship he shared will always be remembered.
