George was a humble man and led a life full of purpose. He was a hard worker and loved to use his hands, whether building something, gardening, or cooking for his loved ones and those in the community he loved through Alpha Gyros. George was also a devoted and dedicated member of Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church, Wauwatosa WI.
