George was a fantastic man. We had a wonderful business and personal relationship......first when I was his insurance agent for D & H logging....and several years ago when I was in real estate and he sold his shop to Dave Kronsteiner. That was the most fun deal I ever made.....George had me running back and forth between the two businesses making the deal he wanted. He was the best logger in southwestern Oregon in my opinion..........honest, direct, and treated everyone fairly. He'll definitively be missed, but never forgotten. Andy Nasburg

Dear Family, We are so sorry for your loss. Becki has been a friend for many years, and Heidi was our daughter's most cherished friend. Your hearts will be broken, but hopefully memories will ease your sadness. We know what a special patriarch George was, and you are blessed in being his loved ones.
