You and Reva always loved your dog. I always think about you both so much. Especially the weekends and our Disney trips. You were always a kid at heart George. Love n miss you both so much. Shell

Have many wonderful memories of George and Reva. Our trip to Disney World in a camper then flying over to St. Thomas, several trips to Williamsburg (George even broke his ankle on one of those trips), our several cruises to Bermuda, the Firehall New Year's Eve parties, Memorial Day and Labor Day parties at his home, trips yo Ocean City, Maryland and so many more. Even though you are gone, you will not be forgotten. George's favorite saying King may not always be right, but King is always King. RIP George and say hello to Reva for us!

I spent a lot of time helping tending bar with George. He will be greatly missed. He was best man for Dee and I when we got married in '84. Rest in peace up in the big house.

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

We'll miss you George, all the trips and fun we had at Disney. You can join Reva now at the big firehouse in the sky.

George will be greatly missed. Whenever I had the opportunity to work with him at Aetna he would make me smile. He just had a way about him. His genuine love for the fire company was clearly evident and he always had the best interest in mind for the volunteers. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He will be fondly remembered.

I have known George for a very long time and will miss his grumpy face. He took great care of all of us in the back kitchen.

I am sad to hear of George's passing. I will always remember our Disney trips, talking on the CB radio, him lugging around one of the first gigantic mobile phones and how I gave him a heart attack falling out of the top bunk of the camper. The endless weekends at the house swimming, grilling, bushels of crabs and enjoying time with whoever could stop by. The ornery look you would get when you found something funny. Rest easy George...thanks for so many great memories.
