He showed his 1968 Plymouth Fury III convertible, that he bought off the showroom floor, at local parades, nursing homes, and car shows, etc. He was also a member of the Port Charlotte New Jersey Club and Moose Club. Some of his other favorite pastimes were gardening, fishing, working to restore his 1926 Diamond T truck, collecting coins, watching old westerns, war movies and the Tampa Bay Rays. He also loved to share his more memorable life experiences, like when he was hit by a train in his '35 Pontiac when he was 20 years old, and lived to tell about it; and the close calls he encountered during WW II. He founded the Southwest Florida Area Armed Guard Social Club in Charlotte County. He attended Edgewater United Methodist Church in Port Charlotte. Memories of George will live-on as his story-telling, amiable personality and his infectious laugh could never be mistaken.
