In the late 1960s--early 1970s I was a reserve police officer with the Springfield Police Department. George was at that time a canine officer. I rode with George a number of times, and was privileged to get to know him fairly well. He was a very good police officer and a fun guy. I am sorry to learn of his passing. My condolences to all of his family.

He always was one step ahead of me on the pranks. No one will be able to fill the void he has left. We will be praying for him, and for comfort for you and all the family. Love to you all; David and Mary Loraine Fromme.

Jo An and family, Our love, prayers, and heartfelt thoughts are with you. It is so difficult to regift God's most precious gift back into His loving arms. George has seen the face of Jesus, is free of pain, worry, and watching over you. I know whenever you talked of George, you always had a smile on your face. Keep that smile of love, dear friend. We love you all. Livy & Don
