George and I hit it off when it came to electronics.  He helped me build my first shortwave radio which got me much deeper into Amateur Radio.  Although he was a bit geeky, he was always willing to help figure out a problem (which was usually not following the directions...).  I recall sitting in his home listening to shortwave radio stations from around the world----  which was at the time, pretty amazing.  I will never forget him.....           Nelson

Didn't know George that well and certainly didn't know anything of his family history.  However, to this day I recall his retorts in class when someone cursed or used G_d's name in vain, "You'll burn in hell for eternity, and eternity is a mighty long time"!  Hadn't met someone so religious or serious, but after reading his obituary I now after 50+ years understand...
