He enjoyed the challenge of training and working as Head Referee for area High School Soccer Leagues. George also completed his 3rd Degree Black Belt with pride, he was a student instructor and received awards for competing on regional and national level.

Upon returning home and completing his MSCTC degree, George pursued a career in IT management. He completed jobs in business IT support on the international, national, and corporate levels. He was exceedingly proud of the IT team at American Solutions for Business, celebrating their friendship and support. We will continue to love his spirit for life.
