George enjoyed spending every summer at his family cottage in Alton Bay, New Hampshire on Lake Winnipesaukee. He treasured the many special times and memories he shared with his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren at “camp.” George enjoyed playing softball in his younger years, gardening (especially his tomatoes), and engineering and building projects of all types. In 1972 George led his family to begin attending The Church of the Open Bible in Burlington. He became an active member serving in many ministries over many years. After 94 years of living in Lynn, he moved to live with his daughter and son-in-law in Derry, NH and began attending Heritage Baptist Church in Windham, NH.
