Wow... I have been away from the forum for quite a bit and didn't see this announcement until I got a PM that brought me back to the forum. This is truly sad news. I met George in person only once and that was in Ohio when he single-handedly taught me how to adjust the valves on MerlinCub when I got him. Really sad to hear of his loss, but I am certain that he is in a much better place now...with no pain and no illness...

Praying for eternal rest for George and comfort to Marilyn...

I, too, have not had the pleasure of meeting Mr. George, but he has helped me quite a bit when I bought my first cub and didn't know anything about tractors. Mr. George made me feel welcome to the forum and unafraid to ask what I thought were "stupid" questions. My condolences to his family, he will be truly missed.

Have not been on the forum in a very long time. Don't know what caused me to check it today. Like most I never met him but we e-mailed some. He was a very smart fellow in lots more then just Cubs. Prayers already said for his family.

I met George at BigDog's, and it only took 5 minutes to see that he was a fine gentleman and that I wished I knew half of what George forgot about tractors; engines and shop knowledge in general.
It was also immediately apparent he and Marilyn shared something few get to in this world, hence, the two-seater Cub. It's the little things isn't it?
He will be missed by many.
Prayers of strength and peace to the Willer family as they go through their time of loss.
