George was born in Wichita, KS on August 13, 1948. He dreamed of becoming a doctor and in 1980 that dream came true. He began practicing medicine as a D.O. in the Dallas area.
George married Mary Katherine Joseph in 1968. They had two children, Cindy in 1968 and Bryan in 1972. During their marriage they lived in Coffeyville, KS, Kirksville, MO, Des Peres, MO, and Grand Prairie, TX.
In the 1990s George suffered heart problems and had to give up his chosen profession. However, he remained generous to his friends and family up to the time of his death on November 8, 2004.
