Maureen, We are truly sorry for your loss. Many years as friends, George was once close to me as a brother. He went Army, I went Navy. It truly pains us that he is gone, may he rest in peace.

George and I were childhood friends, growing up 2 doors from each other.
After his discharge from the Army, our friendship was renewed, manifested by our memorable road trip together in George's GTO in 1972 to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. My Louisiana relatives LOVED George! I will always remember George as a true, fearless friend! This is such a sad day for me. Part of my own history has passed with George.

George was a truly heroic man His passion for service to his country and community was outstanding. He had great love for his family Maureen as his rock throughout his long health ordeal.. Tim followed in his service with the Fire Department which truly made him proud . The last time I came to town I saw George and he showed me a picture that Tim had sent him . The picture was of Tim and Hixson in front of George's rig in the city and the caption said I love u dad. He loved his girls Katie and Kerry and his grandchildren. George was a mentor to all in the Fire Service and trained most of the members of Hose 4 including myself. We first met when he came back from Vietnam. We lived on the same street and when we went to calls at night he and his brother were always together. You would see a blue GTO coming down the street all out up blue inside from his blue light. After moving from New York in 1992 we always talked on the home every couple of weeks. In the later years he would text . All throughout the years that he suffered he would always care about my family not his illness. That was the man George Càrl was bigger than life. I am glad the suffering is over but will always miss my true friend GEORGE.

Maureen,
It was my honor to have known George for so many years. I wish that more could have been done but hope that in someway I was able to make his life a little more peaceful near the end. I knew George from before his ailments began and will always try to remember him as the robust individual that he was. I am in awe at all of his achievements and accomplishments. We will forever be in debt for his service to our country and to his fellow man. I will miss him dearly. My staff at South Shore Otolaryngology feels the same. Peace and comfort to your family.
With deepest respect and sympathy,
Dr Louis Rosner

Georgie and I go back over forty years, the first day I walked into E.262 Georgie was there to welcome me. He was a friend, a fellow member of the F.D.N.Y. and especially, someone you could always rely on. We both moved on to L.154 where we shared many years, many fires, and many many great times. His valiant service to his country and his many years protecting the members of his community in the volunteer service is just monumental. What greater legacy could a man hope to achieve. His courage, strength, and fortitude that he displayed over the years fighting his disease was beyond belief. Rest well my Brother, you've earned it. Al
