    There is more to man than his football, but I can still see George gliding gracefully down the sidelines for a touchdown after taking the kickoff in the Potter blue. It was a beautiful sight. God bless his family and his memories. A Junior Classman

    I worked with George at the Cadiz post office for a number of years. Enjoyed him and his stories. He sure did know a lot of people. Sorry for your loss. He deserves a military funeral for his service to our country.
