He was a veteran of the United States Army, working with Military Police, ending the service to his country with the rank of Corporal. George was a former longtime active member of the Moose Lodge and he enjoyed camping and especially fishing. He had horses for several years and enjoyed trail riding.

He had a special place in his heart for his pet dog Misty.
