    I did business with George for almost 20 years and I have to say that he was one of the kindest and most considerate people I have ever known– a true gentleman in every sense of the word.

    George was my manager in Purchasing at United Airlines for several years. He was always honest and straightforward in his dealings with employees and suppliers. I will remember him fondly.
