George was born and raised in Bayside. He worked as a Millwright for Louisiana Pacific and Arcata Flakeboard for over 50 years.
George was a very devoted and loving husband, father, and hardworking man. He was humble and kind but tough and funny, and we can’t forget very set in his ways. People enjoyed his company and he enjoyed theirs.
He was a member of the Elks Lodge # 652 for many years, where he enjoyed meeting with his friends and playing cards. He and his wife Marilyn were seen for many years at Cher-Ae Heights. Bingo was something they looked forward to on a daily basis. They loved spending this time with their many friends.
Hobbies included Salmon fishing, hunting, and family camping. After retirement he spent most of his days enjoying woodworking, planting a garden, and showing off his yard and fruit trees. He also attended many Fortuna car shows with is nephew Paul Faustino and friend Randy Krueger. George remained very active throughout his years and was often seen walking throughout Henderson Center and liked to meet up with his friends at Dave’s Place.
We Love You and We Will Miss You.
