All,

Meeting George was one of the best things to happen to me in my adult life, and it is all due to my love of flying and my willingness to extend an invitation to go fishing. I have been changed more than I can explain. Debating with George was a blast.

With that said, It took a lot to record, edit and finish this video. I would watch the video, laugh and then turn sad. It was one rollercoaster ride after another. After showing the clips to George's youngest son this last weekend, I was able to finish.

There is no doubt that George was one special person, branded by life, and true to the end.

He definitely made it to the list of closest friends.

Brian, thanks for the video. I spent many hours sitting in that office while George held court. I do miss those days.

I added this pic because George never got to see our Glazener HSB hit the big puddle last year. Here you go buddy, they're doing just fine.>

This past weekend I found myself on I-20 south of Dallas, it was a beautiful day with a lot of wind. I passed my old base and then I saw the sign for the Dallas- Fort Worth National Cemetery exit and thought of George and my other friends interned there. I took the exit and stopped by to pay my respects. George's marker was done and looks great. I took this picture and asked his family if it would be okay to post it here and they loved the idea.

I still miss our conversations and his spirit, It is tough to drive past his exit on the way to the farm or to do much around the farm without thinking what George would have to say about it. I am glad I told George about the expansion of the Topias, on that I know he approved. Change is hard, but inevitable.

Good to see King George's marker and the reference to "Gone Fishing".

God Bless him.

Well done Brian.

George I have always respected you on Pond Boss as an elder like myself.
Living life to it's fullest. My favorite person was my brother in law. also in the gas and oil business like you, was a geologist and a mathematician that started out his career in Midland, TX and was a Winchester, IN native. Good luck.

Thanks Brian, We still see his knowledge through posts of those who knew him, videos, and apparently the many fly's and advice he gave to those who were blessed to meet him.
