Our deepest condolences to the family. George will be missed by everyone who knew him. We enjoyed spending time with him at our shop talking about cars or just life! Fly high George and see you when we get there.

My condolences to the family. George was a good friend of mine and a savvy businessman. Some of my best memories of George was traveling to car auctions where we would drive one car down to Greenville, stop at Hardee’s along the way to get a coffee and biscuit, and many times drive back with two cars. George lived doing what he loved up until it was his time. He will be sorely missed.

George was such a kind and caring man, with such a good sense of humor. We know he’s rejoicing around The Throne with Jesus now. I’m so sorry for your loss. Praying for all of you.
