Being a long time friend of Glenda's daughter, Kim, I was around George and Glenda a few times over the years. Super nice people and always a joy to be around! George seemed to be a very genuine guy - kind, personable and humorous, any time that I was around him. And, from the memories shared, he was also a well respected man. I know that he will be dearly missed by family and friends. With deepest sympathy, so sorry for your loss1

I was heartbroken when i heard. George was the finest man Central City has ever had. As a Police Officer for Central City....George arrested me several times...hes also the one who captured me after i escaped from the Muhlenberg County Jail. He and Harold (Roadblock) Mclevain had me hemmed up in a lil patch of woods....i waited til dark....snuck out ....there he was..a black shape of a man ..crouched behind a garbage can...telling me Freeze.. to put my hands up....the voice then said....because George knew i had rabbit blood in me..told me if i ran..hed cut me in half. He had a semiautomatic i knew. I still didnt know who it was til he walked up and said..."I knew you wefe gonna come out sooner or later and did i. He told 2 guys there playing tennis that he was a CCPD Officer and asked would they care to "hold my prisoner til i unlock my truck door" they did.....he took me to jail in his truck.i asked him would hed shot me if i was his answer.......he said id went home eventually...he wished me a good night as Jailer Jackie Dukes took me to my cell. Ive never had any bad feelings against this man. He was so respectful to me....i was so unruly..but he still treated me like a human being....he was a wonderful person.

I'm sorry to hear of George's passing. He was a joy to be around and was consistently eager to help any and all of his customers through his HVAC business. I'll be thinking of Tara and his other children during their time of grief.
