When George was two years old his family moved downstate to Harbor Springs, Michigan. His mother died shortly thereafter and it became his sisters job to care for him. George was a happy go lucky person.

George had been placed in the State Boys School in Lapeer, Michigan not far away from his brothers who had moved to Flint. No one in the family was in a position to care for him at the time. Les didn't like him being there, so he would go pick him up bring him home on holidays.

When he was old enough, George joined the military, afterwards he spent most of his adult life working on a farm in the Upper Peninsula.

George loved to sit and reminisce of his younger years with his family.
