Thanks Kathy for posting the sad news about George.  He was a good friend, always kind and thoughtful. In recent years we spoke more often, usually about fun times we shared as kids.  One of those memories was of 
George, Keith and me taking a impromptu boat trip to Canada.  We were 17 and it turned out to be quite an adventure.   George and I would laugh about it often,  especially since things are so different today, back then we never checked in with the authorities.  We called him Fly, in time thoughts of him will always be followed by a smile. He will be missed.  Rich

I was really bummed out when I read the notice. We will miss the great cards & notes he sent. It's good that he is in a better place.

I did not attend DHS until my junior year but I will say upon meeting George we became instant friends. "The Fly" was a real character and a most kind individual. The rec dances, Dormont pool, Nicks pool hall and some general "craziness" memories will last for ever. RIP brother Geroge!

George and I were friends since 1st grade. Even though we went our separate ways after high school, George always managed to keep in touch.  I have many fond memories of all the fun times we had.  Rest in peace, dear friend.

just did a 2 page summary of 1 of best high school friends and it disappered.

so here is the reader's digest version.

can't believe lost 2 of my best friends so quickly (ted and fly) after having such a great time at the reunion,

fly, hudreds of stories but because of age and memory will only related a few.

58 impala two tone brown (ugly) called it the toilet bowl.

worked at isley ( ice cream, kinda like starbucks today) and wore a great hat (ha-ha).

shared pall mall in the alley and at nick;s pool hall.

date sisters who put up with our inmaturity. other sisters thought we were cool,  mom loved us.

sent us out for xmas tree. came back with 3 footer and few needles. thought funny. some tears.

had nice tre in car. we were heroes.

didn't stay in contact too much after high school. what a shame,

thought he was doing better.

I did not know George well but when I did see him, he was always very nice to me.  I loved reading everyone's comments and memories of him. We are such a good group and I am so sorry I did not keep in touch more. I hope George is at peace.  Thank you all for sharing,
