George lived some of his earlier years in Pueblo, Colorado and Chicago, Illinois, and later settled in Questa, New Mexico, which he considered his home. A hard worker, his career included working at a hammer mill in Chicago, the Broadmoor Hotel and Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. Upon moving to New Mexico, he became an apprentice in electrical and building construction, helping various builders in the area. He was a humble man and always had his door open to anyone in need. He will be dearly missed. Services are pending due to COVID-19. The family would like to thank Taos Living Center, Envoy Hospice Care, Rivera Funeral Home, and all who visited and prayed for him during his illness.
