Before retiring to York in 2012, George, now a licensed sea captain, and his wife, ran a charter sailing business out of Salem, Ma and the BVI aboard their 40-foot ketch “Alexandra Rose.” Prior to that he was a manager in the publishing industry out of Boston for over 20 years. 

An avid reader, lover of music and animals, George was a devoted member of the choir and a congregant at St. George’s Episcopal Church in York Harbor, Me where a memorial service will be held on Wednesday January 24, 2018 @11am.
