    We are saddened to see that George has passed away. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. My husband and I both worked with George at American Motors in Kenosha Wisconsin beginning in the mid 1960's. I was John Pendrick's secretary for many years. Also we purchased a piece of property next to Gil Austin from George in a subdivision on the south side of Kenosha. We had no idea he was living so close to us now. We live in Etowah and would certainly have been in contact had we known. Don and Carol Odegaard

    Sincere sympathy extended to Phylis and family. George was a great person to work with. He was always willing to be fair to his co workers. He personally arranged to have my car fixed when I explained about the door problem I had with my newly purchased Spirit. That was only one of such examples. He was just that kind of guy.
