Memories Timeline


  1. Minot George and Ruth will both be missed. I lived with them for one summer after George got me a job in a plumbing warehouse. One of the things George always mentioned when I saw him was about when I was working undercover drug investigations for the Grand Forks PD and had grown long hair and a beard. George hadn’t seen me like that and one day Dad and I stopped at George’s shop and I had walked in alone and told and George I needed my car worked on and was told to talk to him. He looked at me and said he didn’t have time and to make an appointment. I kept hounding him and finally he looked at me and said “you go sit in your car and don’t get out until I come and get you later this afternoon”. My Dad walked in then and I started laughing and George looked at me and sort of swore and then began laughing too.

    Rest in Peace

    George and Ruth were my mother’s next door neighbors for years. Such a kind man and now he is reunited with Ruth! God bless the memory of George.
