George enjoyed a long and distinguished career with IATSE beginning in 1953 with Lancaster Local 247 and had been a member of Local 98 since 1972.

I would like to take the time to show my appreciation to the Local for the flower arrangement and the gift which will come in handy and to thank all those that sent cards and condolences. But most of all i would like to thank all the members that took time out of their busy day to come to the cemetery to see dad off. I know he would have enjoyed it very much. Now there is only one thing left to say;


Thanks George
