George worked many years at Piedmont's T.H. Davis Training Center as an instructor. He serve his nation in the US Air Force and worked for AiReasearch before joining Piedmont. George invented a means of cooling and recyling waste water for the Apollo Moon Modules.

George was the recipent of the Charles E. Taylor Award honoring his more than 50 years of dedicated service to the aviation maintenance industry.

I first met George when I attended a training class in Winston Salem. Later on when I joined the training department, George and I became very close friends. I knew George as a person who would lend a hand to anyone that would ask for his help. He was a great friend, co-worker and neighbor. And he will be missed very much.

Our prayers and thoughts are with Jane and his family.

I knew George for a number of years and found him to be an honest and true friend. I could call George anytime for help and he would always respond. He was the best instructor I have ever set under. I was never able to stump him, though I tried may times. I will miss him dearly.
