Dearest Becky, Donna and family, Please accept our sincere condolences. We both thought the world of your brother as he was a real gentleman and such a loving brother. Our father seemed to wish that Tom had been his son.
With love, from both of us.

Our sympathies and prayers go out to the entire George family in this time of sadness. In the 20-plus years that we worked together, I always admired and was influenced by Tom’s dedication to his profession and the pride that he took in his work and in our facility. His meticulous attention to detail was unmatched. And, as our organization’s HR Director, he had a passion for the well-being of each and every employee here. In his view, employees were not just “employees”, they were like “family”. There is no doubt that he shared that same passion for his family and friends. I am a better person today for having Tom George in my life for so many years.
