He then went on to work as an electronics tech in the private sector before retiring in 2001.
George was passionate about the sea and proud of his service in the Navy. He loved reminiscing about his time on the open road and his father, Robert, as well as working with his hands and studying the newest technology. His team was the Washington Redskins, and he loved listening to the Moody Blues and Judas Priest. But his greatest love and pride were his children and grandchildren.
