George worked for the State of West Virginia Division of Culture and History and the Department of Education and Arts.  He also acted as Director of Camp Washington Carver in Fayette County.

George enjoyed life to the fullest. From spending the weekends at he and Kim’s cabin in Alderson, to camping with his grandkids, hunting or having family dinners at his house. George was committed to his family- and everyone was a part of the family.

To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that George has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God\'s Kingdom will do this under the rule of Jesus Christ. READ John 5:28, 29, Job 14:14, 15,Psalms 37:29,Matthew 6:9,10, Matthew 5:5 and Revelation 21:2-4

My heart and deepest sympathies to the family and friends of George during this difficult time.  I know the heartbreak and pain of losing a loved one in death so I wanted to take a moment to share an encouraging scripture that gives me much hope.  1 Corinthians 15:26 \"And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.\"  When we lose someone in death our heavenly Father sees the pain we feel and he promises to very soon do away with this wicked enemy of ours once and for all.  And then he promises the most beautiful hope, to bring back to life all our dear loved ones and to reunite them with us again!  What a beautiful promise of comfort and hope and how we long for that truly special day so close at hand.

Kim and family: I worked with George a short time, but our offices were only 2 apart. We had times of wonderful conversation and I came to think the world of George. He was kind, compassionate and caring to so many people. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time, but he \"Did it HIS way\". Kim, you were his soul. When he talked about you his eyes lit up. He wanted nothing more than to please you in any way he could. You were the love of his life! Celebrate George!

To say that I loved working with George is an understatement! For many years, he hired me to bring my Theatrical Ensemble to perform at Camp Washington Carver. I can still envision him standing in the dining room chatting with the staff, performers and show attendees. His smile could brighten the universe and his sense of humor always made our smiles brighter! Rest in bliss, my friend!
