    One of the best and kindest man I have ever got to know. Me and my dad was small time dairy farmer’s and George was always there to help us out he drove his Fox chopper from his house in Glasgow to our farm in Dry Fork got off and ask dad what he’d give him for it because he didn’t feel like driving it back went back home and brought us his wagons and blower and that was the start of a beautiful friendship watched him spend 3 hours straight with a big sander sharpening the the knives on it smiling the whole time. If you ever needed him he was always a phone call away he loved to help out any way he could. A lot of farmer’s always knew they could count on him no matter who you where. He was always glad to help. It was an honor and privilege to get to know him
