George, was a person who loved what he did, I personally worked with in EMS. He also loved his family. I watched his kids grow up in the EMS building. Because him and his wife Connie were there so much. He was instrumental in keeping our EMS from going under. I will miss him along with many others. RIP GEORGE. 


Thank you George for all that you gave. You will be missed!!
