I always had the deepest respect for George. Never heard him say anything bad about anyone or use any foul language. He was honest, even handed, always positive and in my opinion should have been Pressroom Superintendent and then plant manager. Completely the opposite of what is looked for in a Plant Superintendent now.
If you never knew George the best way I could describe him is he had the same demeanor as Ronald Reagan. Someone you looked up too and wished you were like.
Gone to the ages now, rest in peace George, God Bless.
