Dear Branam,

I visited with George and his cousin a few days before his death. He foretold me that It wouldn't be much longer. George and I became close friends when he moved to Dryden. I was a senior in 1952. We did a lot of stuff together for that time period. Dances, sports, tennis, swimming were several fun activities.

Around 1955 or 56 George was out of work and joined our family business delivering Culligan water softener tanks to homes in Wenatchee and the surrounding area. He received an job offer from Chelan County P U D and that became his career.

I didn't see much of George until we got together several times to attend the annual Dryden Improvement Club chili/stew feed every October. He was well remembered by his former Dryden classmates.

George had a wonderful personality and was loved by everyone he met.
