Yep, it's a boy!
He started young as a musician and played until arthritis made it too difficult. (He was still in his 80's)
He served our country in World War 2.
And became a family man. (the youngest son with the scowl is my husband!)
He started Madras Auto Parts in 1955 and worked with 2 of his children. (Cory on the left)
He was the Patriarch of the family. We looked up to George because of his unconditional love, integrity, and honesty. His love ran deep as he cared for his father, his daughter and his wife through their illness and death.
He loved going to watch the Bend Elks baseball game. Especially $2 night with his two sons.
My daughter had lots of special times and talks with her grandpa. I had to snap a photo this past Christmas when they both had their puffy jackets on!
I feel fortunate to have been able to take care of him this past week when he got so sick. It was a big thing, but such a small thing.
Rest in Peace George.
