    Over the years of me taking George back and forth to the victory club and the legion . I learned thru him how proud he was of his family and how much he loved them all. He always told me that he has the best daughter a Dad could ever have. He also shared with me that he was very proud of Aj and how he was doing really great in everything he was doing. He also shared with me that his son was a state trooper in Massachusetts and he was very proud of his son and he loved everyone the same. He also told he drove taxi 🚖 one day and decided that was not for him. I just wanted to say how sad I am over his passing. He loved his family so much. I 🙏 for his family in there time of need. I am sorry for your lost and my condolences to all of his family.
