George was first employed by the Illinois Department of Transportation in road maintenance. Following his military service, George was employed as a farm hand by various farmers. He resided with his parents until 1989 and later resided in Prophetstown, IL, for a short time, until returning to Morrison. George was an avid fisherman, outdoorsman, and enjoyed gardening. He was a kindhearted, self sacrificing and giving individual. However, he was often misunderstood by those he came in contact with because of a stubborn, eccentric personality.
