It was my pleasure of having George as a customer for 12 years. George was one of my first walk ins at Classic Cuts when I started my shop. He told many stories of teaching kids to swim in the neighborhood, golfing, and the many stories of being poppy. He loved the grandkids and great grandkids. May he rest in peace with no more pain, he's with Carol now, how he missed her. Ellen Wilson
