George was a steadying hand for Anne and family when I met him, a welcome addition to our vacation
neighborhood in West Campton, NH for about 10 years until they decided to move their base of operations out West. He taught me among other things he never landed his plane on a grass field and he knew what every instrument on the dashboard of the plane was for. Ie, in my eyes he was the Real Deal. When they decided to move George walked up the long hill to my cabin and gave me his Honda guitar, instantly elevating my music making. Best of all, he was a great husband for a superbly talented widow and father for her two adventuresome children, a uniquely unpredictable fascinating addition for our lives.
