I always thought highly of George when we worked together at TOPPS department store, in the early 1970's. He was working part time, off duty police security and taught me quite a bit about reading a person's body language to size them up. He was always friendly to me and my condolences to all of you.

I met George when I was working as a sheriff's deputy back in the 70's. I remember him always working different security extra jobs, like at one of the drive-in's on Cleveland Avenue. He was a good police officer and a fine gentleman. May God bless him and his family.
