The times spent at the Family gathering dinner are such fond memories for me. I brought tamales and you didn’t know what they were, I still chuckle about that😊 ! God speed George, R.I.P.

Wish I could have seen you one more time George before you left us to go on to Heaven. Patty told me about a dream you had about when you entered Heaven that Harold Arnold your lifelong friend was the first person you saw and you both were so glad to see other. That did my heart so good to hear this. We were friends as couples for many years which I cherish. We loved you & Patty so much. I know you are in a better place with no more pain or sorrow. Will look forward to seeing you when it comes my time to graduate. I intend to keep in touch with Patty. Wish I could be at your service.

Daddy... I am ever so grateful that the Lord gave me to you 62 years ago. It has been my honor & privilege to call you my 'Dad'. Not gonna lie Daddy, your passing pains my heart & soul... Ya know, one can never be completely prepared or fully embrace that their loved one is not returning to any resemblance of a quality of life. That said, it is just so final to hear those 3 words, 'Time of Death'. An out of body experience for sure knowing 'your person' has left their earthly body & went on to the throne room of his Father. As I press into the Lord, I ask him for comfort & peace for my Mom Pat. My Brother Rick & DIL Kathy, Daughter-In-Law Linda, Grandson Trenton, Grandson Stephen & DIL Sarah & Granddaughter Vanessa, as well as Great Grandchildren Kyle, Zachary, Lydia, Kate & Addison. Along with the scores of loving family & friends who have shaped you Dad, created memories with you & will continue to hold you close in their hearts. You were a tough hard-working man of few words, who I always thought to be somewhat of a ‘hobo’! You played hard, were a practical joker & you sacrificed for you family. Most importantly tho is the memory of your ‘Love’ you had for your bride, my Mom… Now go ‘hoboing’ around heaven seeking those who have preceded you. Drive around in your new awesome diesel truck on the highways & byways of heaven, paved with beauty that only the Lord can provide. Oh & Dad, surely treasures be plentiful ‘dumpster diving’ in heaven, the sand dunes will be endless & the love of the Lord will be brighter than any bon-fire that you built! Thank you Dad for being my Dad…

One of our memories is from around 40 years ago when George and Pat went on a cruise. Seeing their great photo's is why we took our first cruise and discovered how fun they are. We thank them for helping us make that discovery. Our hearts ache for Pat, the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren's loss, as well as all their friends on the death of George. George was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed. We extend our sincere condolences to the family, along with prayers of strength. Kind Regards, Carol and David Knowles

George was truly a wonderful person who could appear gruff but was a big softie in reality. I am so glad that I had the chance to get to know him. I will never be able to fry fish or cook liver again without remembering him! The Dillow family has a special place in my heart and will always be remembered fondly.
