George and Donna were friends of my parents, Cal & Betty Clippinger at St. Sebastian's. When Dad died, George was such good support for my mom. He became a family friend. And then, when she developed Alzheimers , he visited her regularly and was a spiritual and support for me and my siblings.
He was a wonderful and funny man.
We send our loving condolences to Donna and family.
God bless George and loved ones.
