October 18, 2017We are deeply saddened by the news of George’s passing. He has been the crossing guard for my 3 kids the past 8 years. He really connected to the kids and was genuinely nice to everyone. My kids came home almost everyday with stories about their conversations with George. He was a treasure for this community and we will really miss him.Melissa Vigil, De Pere, WI
October 17, 2017Roxanne and family, I am heartbroken to hear of George’s passing. Such a good man gone too soon. Knowing you over the years with the dogs in your family has been a blessing and joy. Really loved to see the newest tricks and fun from them. Most recently I had seen George at his posts; both in the Resch and at Lambeau. Always a smile and kind word. My heartfelt sympathies to you all,Juliepuppy preschool teacher and friendJulie Mattek, Green Bay, WI
