    I was so disheartened to learn of George`s passing. I was a long time friend and will really miss George. I still have a photo of George and I on his Harley motorcycle. From days gone by when he would stop by my and we would go for a drive. George will be remember fondly with a big heart. I feel we have lost a hero and heaven got an angel. God Bless you George and our thoughts and prayers for family and friends.

    George was a much respected gentleman. He would often attend my jam session at the Fargo VFW, where he loved to dance. George also helped draw up my family’s legal trust. He will surely be missed.

    I met Uncle George for the first time in September 2014 at his home. His brother, Arthur Christian was my Grandfather. It was wonderful to make contact with him and hear some of his stories about his time in the Army and his love of motorcycle riding. Rest in Peace, Uncle George. You’ve had a long ride.

    When Jennifer & I were married I asked George if we could use his Harley with a side car for our get away and he was so kind and gracious it was a high light of our special day. When George came back from his trip to Sturgis he always had photos to share. We hold the Ulseth family in our thoughts and prayers. Brad & Jennifer
