    I knew George from Jr. High, High School and ECU. He is a fraternity brother and will be missed. I can still remember hearing his name quite often on the radio carrying the football for Goldsboro High during their games He was a great player. He was also a good friend.

    George will be missed. He was a good friend to Linda and me during our dating and engagement. He was in our wedding and our friend through all these years. George was instrumental in the establishment of Sigma Tau Sigma at ECU and was a dear friend to all of the brothers. I am so handful that we had our recent reunion and we all had an opportunity to be with George before he passed away.
