George’s service spanned more than 50 years and included youth minister, camp director and waterfront safety instructor, bus minister, assistant pastor, senior pastor, seminary vice-president, and several interim pastorates. George was a tender-hearted, faithful servant and felt especially privileged to lead several family members to the Lord.
