George was a Compton Police Detective and I was a Compton Police Officer when I met him sometime in 1970. George and I became roommates and good friends prior to him becoming an Inglewood Police Detective. I have really good memories of all the good and bad times we experienced together. Both our spouses bonded together during the bad times and became friends for a short period of time.

George was a good man, husband and father. I will never forget you, God Bless You and Rest in Peace.
