George was very adventurous - from taking epic motorcycle journeys with his family, sailing his Cal 74 to Hawaii to climbing Mt. Rainer. He and wife Linda traveled the world together, skied every mountain and dove most of the great reefs of the world. He was an avid member of San Diego Tennis and Racquet Club since the seventies where he enjoyed tennis and bridge games as well as the many friendships within that club. George loved life!

He concluded his career as a real estate broker at Prudential in La Jolla and Jelly Properties, Del Mar.
Friends and family loved and admired George’s kind heart, wonderful sense of humor, great mind, extensive knowledge and passion for life. He was a genuine and honest man and spent his final weeks walking the beaches of Torrey Pines with his daughter.
“George was a kind and generous soul. Being a good man seemed to be his goal. He is loved by so many, every Tom Dick and Denny. Add our names to that roll.”
