He spent summers with his parents, brother, Walter, and friends at Camp St. Basil, Narrowsburg, NY. He loved swimming, fishing, and sailing. He carried this love for the wilderness throughout his life.
He met his wife, Ann at the age of 15 and were married for 50 years.
They spent many happy summers at their cabin on the lake with their three children, Christina, Larissa, and Katherine.
Ever adventurous, in 1982, George drove the family across country, pulling a pop up camper. He and Ann, took a cruise around Europe with friends and fished for salmon in Alaska.
But his true passion was spending summers fishing and cooking on an open fire in Narrowsburg.

He retired in 2002 and spent half his time in Glen Spey, NY with his wife, enjoying nature.
