George was well liked by most if not all he interacted with. He was funny, caring, and oftentimes the life of the party. George enjoyed hunting, fishing, music, and watching sports; Specifically, The Los Angeles/ St Louis Rams and the New York Yankees, of which he still talked to his son regularly about these seasons and in the last few weeks. George was someone who was able to strike up a conversation with just about anyone and would call to just chat for two minutes about day to day things. People who have met him typically would not forget his presence. We love you, Dad!

Calling hours will be at Cleveland Funeral Home in Watertown, NY on January 11, 2021 from 5pm-8pm. The funeral will be at Cleveland Funeral Home on January 12th 2021 at 10am.
