George’s love of life, family, and friends will be sorely missed by all who knew him. He was committed to serving. He served in the Navy (active and reserve) for over 42 years. He served as a proud member of Rotary for most of his adult life. He served in education as a teacher and then as a Business Officer (at SD 300 Dundee Township IL, New Trier H.S. Winnetka, IL and Barrington SD, Barrington IL plus helping to create Siesta Isle University with Nanci in his retirement). He served in the Association of School Business Officials (where he was President in 1974). He served at Sarasota Memorial Hospital as a volunteer into his 90’s. For those who remember his Big Mouth Frog joke – the family has a recording of it we can share.
