    candle 5I work at Park Place as the Activity Director and George always made our Happy Hours happy….as sick as he would be sometimes, he never complained and always had a smile to give – he would pull jokes out he had buried in that brain from 1955′ – always made me laugh, great stories of U City, his love of tennis (and wine :O) – well he was just a great man and is missed by everyone here, I feel very lucky that he was in my life and will keep that smile in my memory – Much love to you and your family.

    The Thatchers said it in one word. George was what it means to be a gentleman. Whenever we met, I always thought that I was talking to a friend.

    George Ward was one of the finest gentleman I have been lucky to know. There was always a delightful twinkle in his eye. He was a great & positive conversationist. Incredibly considerate! He was a blessing to our Chautauqua – one of my faves! My heartfelt prayers are with his loved ones who I am sure have lots of memories to cherish as they celebrate a life well lived!
