He was also a lifelong member of the Masonic Lodge of Wisconsin and a member of the Tip O' Texas Genealogy Society and the Arroyo Colorado Audubon Society.

I am sad to say that I just heard of my uncle passing. My memories of George definitely encompass his talks with my mom, Agnes about genealogy among other things. Heaven is a lucky place to inherit this fine man.
