George was one of the best men I ever met. I have cubs because of his love and enthusiasm for them. I will miss his wisdom and humor.

This is a real loss. I never met George, but loved his wisdom and expertise. Not to mention a sense of humor, too. And who wouldn't like to have the man's talents in design and fabrication? Rest in Peace, Mr. Willer, and thanks for all you gave us.

Jeff, Darrell, Thanks for posting the pics of George, they brought me some great memories! George is all I can think about this evening, remembering many great times together. It's a lot of the little moments that seem to mean so much.

I've been dreading the day when this post would appear. All I can add is to thank George for all he did for us Cubbers. My condolences to his wife and family.

Very sorry to hear, condolences to George's family. We have lost one of the "giants" of our hobby.

If you never met Sir George ....
You truly missed meeting one awesome Man . He not only knew cubs , He was a knowledgeable about so many things it would take the rest of the summer for me to write all i would like to share about George.

Rest in Peace My Friend

Here is a pic taken At Gene Dotson's cubfest a few years ago and Sir george was having a blast.

I am very sorry to hear this news. I never got to meet George, but it is very clear that he was a driving force behind this forum being what it is today. He has fought a long and hard fight, he never gave up, and now he may rest in peace. Though his body may be gone, his spirit will live on through this community for a long long time.
