  1. Unfortunately, my carrer has taken me across the country in several directions, but we spoke often on the phone. I will miss our conversations and his sense of humor and friendship. Rest in Peace George!

  2. Prayers for the family. I am sorry for your Loss. George will be missed. My husband Gerald LeFevre & George are cousins and will see each other in heaven.

  3. I met George when I was fifteen years old and George was sixteen, George and Gerald were the best of buddies. We were high school sweethearts and we were engaged when George was in the military and I broke off the engagement when he went overseas. George was always a wonderful person and well liked by everyone. He will be missed by many. I send my prayers and heartfelt sympathy to George’s family with love, especially Dicky.
