  1. George had been my friend for many years. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was so much fun to be around. He was a kind and caring man with a wonderful smile. I will miss chatting with him on the phone. My deepest sympathy to his family and to his many friends.

  2. George was my friend and neighbor when I lived in Hamden. Spongie, yellow lab, will miss receiving biscuits and hugs from a sweet and wonderful man. He touched a lot of hearts. I was honored to know him.

  3. I met George on a Biker Site & we started writing about how much we loved riding. My son & his wife live in Plainville CT and we decided to meet & go riding when I went to visit them. He had lots of fun & he showed places all over CT. One special ride we stopped at a river at Cornell Bridge (?) & sat eating lunch & sharing about past lives & the beautiful nature all around us! We decided I would meet him in Sturgis & he made all the arrangements being a perfect gentleman…I was on my way & the bike broke just outside of Colo. he offered to come get me, what a wonderful friend he was. When I went to CT for Christmas he always treated me to The Olive Tree for a wonderful dinner, but it was his company that was great. (We went in the Super Red Car…haha) I have been sick & out of contact but he will always be a part of my history, & I’m so glad our paths crossed each others…Wind blowing in my hair & beautiful country will never leave me..The Biker Code says he will blow wind on my head & the sunshine shine on my back tattoos….George .My Brother. I’ll meet you on the road again…Hugs & Love, dyanpaintedlady XO GOD BLESS!!

  4. We have been fortunate to have George as our neighbor. We will miss him greatly. He was such a kind and thiughtful man. My condolences to his family.

  5. My son & daughter-in-law, tried to send one thanking George for showing ID on our 1st ride. How it was nice to see him when he would pick me up & hope they felt trusting & enjoyed seeing him. Josh loved the Red Car (HA HA). Sending all their best wishes, support to his family. Computer would not accept message with no e-mail listed. Josh & Jennifer Norfleet

  6. He was an awesome teacher one of the best we had at Thomas Hooker. May he rest in peace. My condolences to his family
